New overlays panel


Level 1

I'm working in InDesign 2015.3 but it doesn't include the new overlays panel as mentioned here:

Create interactive overlays in InDesign for AEM Mobile

Will this panel be available in InDesign 2015.4?

Hi Richard,

I believe it should be there already in 2015.3 but I can confirm I'm using 2015.4 and the 'Overlays' sub-menu is present in the Window menu.

The updated overlay panel was part of the 2016.6 release: History of new feature notes for AEM Mobile releases

The update for 2015.4 isn't available in my CC desktop app yet so can't update InDesign to confirm. Thanks for your reply though.



I believe the 2015.4 update was released in June. You may have updates disabled on your machine (Disable auto-updates in Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Creative Suite 6 apps).

Can you check this file /Library/Application Support/Adobe/AAMUpdaterInventory/1.0/AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat ?

If the value is set to one, you can change it to '0' and then restart.

//<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  //  <Preferences>       

   // <Suppressed>0</Suppressed>

  //  </Preferences>

Hope that helps

I can't open that file as it states that I don't own it and therefore can't edit it. Thanks
