Multi-language version: InDesign will start in English, BUT you can force another language:

  • Open App once then close it. Sandbox folder will be created near to the exe file.
  • Go to \Sandbox\Adobe InDesign CC 2018\roaming\modified\@[email protected]\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC 2018\ and open the file “painter.ini” with Notepad
  • Add these 2 lines before [AMT]:
  • But instead of en_US place your language code (for example: it_IT, es_ES, de_DE, en_GB, ru_RU, pt_PT, pt_BR, ja_JP, …You can see them all here)

WARNING: Only main languages are supported. If it does not work and remains english, maybe it’s because your language is not supported 🙁

New way of doing portables: separate .svm packages
-useful for plugins & so: reduces main exe size that contains only the program, then you can download the plugin package only if you want it!
-ability for me to release a small program update through these separate files, without having to make the whole thing form scratch for each update.
--> More updated portables and less unnecessary size!

This release includes:
- main package (2 Gb): 1 exe file "InDesign CC 2018 Portable.exe".
- Bridge CC 2018 package (722 Mb): optional .svm file, download if you want to use Bridge. Launch Bridge from inside main app (no standalone executable): use File -> Browse in Bridge. NOTE: first start of Bridge may take a while because it has to initialize.
- Camera Raw package (727 Mb): an additional optional .svm package including Camera Raw.
- more to come by request

You have to download the main package. If you want one or both of the additional plugins packages, download them and put the .svm file near the main exe files. At next startup, the portable will recognize the new plugins!
NOTE: default name for these packages is pack.svm. If you want to use both, you can rename one to the following recognized file names: "pack.svm", "kg.svm", "update.svm", "language.svm". (The name itself has no meaning.)

Thank you for posting the InDesign and Acrobat portables. Would you mind listing the versions for at least these two that you have done?

InDesign had a somewhat major update in Nov for crashes and other issues, and is now v13.0.1.207. Acrobat was updated at the end of Nov, and is 18.009.20050.

Thank you again.

Hello again. I ended up DL’ing InDesign and turns out I can’t use it as it is x64. Maybe sometime in the future… I’m going to assume that the others are also x64 as well. Still would like to know the version of any you can supply. Thanks.

    Sorry for that, yes they’re all x64… Consider upgrading 😉

    All my Adobe portables are made few days before being posted here, directly downloaded from official Creative Cloud app, so they’re all fresh from December.
    Also, just checked, and got InDesign CC 2018 v13.0.1 (can’t find any build number) and Acrobat Pro DC v2018.009.20050

Sorry, but after update of the windows 10 to April Update i have this message after lunch the app (i am not sure if the updase is the reason):

“Adobe InDesign is missing required system fonts or CMap files.
Please reinstall InDesign.”

But Photoshop 2018 running like a charm, so i dont know where the mistake can be.

Mee too. Please help!

    The House of Portable · 25 June 2018 at 13:23

    Sorry I didn’t reply! Latest update broke some portables, but I already made some updated versions for it, including InDesign. Check it over here and download 2018.1 🙂
