Bring back sync settings
Indesign needs to bring back the Sync Settings feature. Trying to recreate my workspaces and other settings when I get a new computer is such a hassle. Why would Adobe provide a really useful feature like sync settings and then take it away? With all of the resources of Creative Cloud, sync settings should be at the top of the list for Adobe.
I was baffled when I found out that this is not possible. It's so basic…
Thats the minimum that I expect from apps and services that carry the word Cloud in their name.

This is a huge time saver and most other major CC Application's have this function.
As a work-around, I've been exporting my settings and saving them on my google drive. Then I place them into the settings folder (Go > Library > Preferences > InDesign > Workspaces). It's not as clean/quick/easy as the sync feature was, but it works.

This issue should be merged with this: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601021-adobe-indesign-feature-requests/suggestions/33795448-syncing-workspaces-and-preferences
Yes. Or at least make it possible to package all CC settings.

Just like always adobe could care less what the customer wants or needs. Charge us more and take away what we really use.

Yes, remove sync settings in Adobe CC applications (InDesing, Photoshop, Illustrator) is ridiculous. We have cloud applications, possibility to work in teams (unfortunately it's not helpful for me, I'm alone and sometimes I only need to work on home computer), but it's not possible to synchornize settings, shortcuts and workspaces from work comp to home comp an vice versa. I've found there is possibility to export settings from PS CC 2019 manually and move it to another computer, but the same action isn't possible in Indesign or Illustrator... Why, oh why...
the only useful feature of creative cloud sync, and they remove. WTF
