Enabling Adobe Plugins & Extensions

Previous Step: Connecting Palette

Before enabling any plugins and/or extension is possible, we must install the appropriate plugins and extensions.

First, close all Adobe CC applications. Plugins and extensions will not install while an Adobe CC application is open!

Next, create profiles for your Adobe CC apps. Do not worry if PaletteApp is unable to detect the application—we are simply installing the extension.

At this point, there may be a system prompt requesting admin access. This is required to install the plugins and extensions in the right location. Once this is done, the plugins and extensions are ready for use.

Sometimes, plugins and extensions need to be manually enabled but in most cases, this step happens automatically in the background. The steps to manually enabling the plugins and extensions for your respective Adobe CC applications are located below.
