InDesign has been the main DTP application of choice for the last 15 years or so. 15 years is a lot of versions ago! That also means, for a proprietary format such as InDesign (.indd), versioning issues.

The CC 2018 applications are complete new builds of the tools and not just “in place” feature updates to the existing versions. When upgrading your system, the CC Desktop App will, by default, uninstall prior CC (not CS) versions on your machine, so that you just have the latest release… It will automat­ically migrate your presets, preferences and any compatible add-ons; however it will not migrate third-party plug-ins.
