How do I keep previous versions of an Adobe CC application as I install the new one?

What is the trick? On install, uncheck "Remove old versions". That's it! And you'll keep your older versions of InDesign (or Photoshop, or whatever).

You can also enable auto-update and tell it to keep your old versions.

How do I get back a previous version of an Adobe CC application that was unintentionally removed?

This option is a little less hidden than it has been in the past. It really is quite simple:

Software development is a crazy business. Every time you feel you’ve mastered a programming language or framework, it’s declared obsolete, and you’ve got to crawl your way back up a learning curve to master something new. These changes are never under your control—they are handed down from on high, from Apple, Microsoft, Google, Adobe, or whichever corporate tail it is that wags your particular dog. They make a change, and we scramble to adapt. You know, as if our livelihoods depended on it, or something.

I’m not exactly complaining, mind you, because there’s nothing I enjoy more than learning something new. But there are days when I wish I’d taken up, say, shoeing horses. There is no “Horseshoes 2.0” on the horizon.

Anything you can dream, you can do.
