ArcGIS Maps for Adobe CC 1.5.2 (March) update issues:

- Extension errors with ”Requires ArcGIS Online or Plus” when already signed in as an ArcGIS Online user (BUG-000128927).

- Error ”Operation not available” keeps reoccurring when complimentary users try to change the dpi.

- Some complimentary users get an invalid authorization code error when emailed code is used for activation.

The new 1.5.1 (Dec 2019) release of ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud includes the following updates:

Installation — You can now download Maps for Adobe directly from the Esri website:

Update notifications — When the next version becomes available, the extension will let you know so you can choose when to update to the latest.

Feature attributes and labels — Click a feature on the map to view its attributes and add respective labels as text layers.

Visualize routes — New analysis tool for displaying routes on the map between origin and destination points based on a selected travel mode, such as driving time and walking distance.

GPX file support — Use GPX files to create an extent in the Mapboards window and to add layers in the Compilation window.

Hide non-drawing layers — Choose to hide all non-drawing layers so they don't appear in the layer list.

Automatic layer sorting — Sort layers by geometry type so polygon features don't cover line and point features on the map.

Searchable field lists—Type a search string to filter long field lists when choosing which attribute to use for labeling, styling, and filtering layers.

Batch symbol updates—Change or delete the symbology of multiple categories within a layer when styling by category. You can also sort the symbol list by label or count (number of features).

Bug fixes:
- Windows Installer fails to detect Illustrator/Photoshop
- Enterprise login
- Mapboard window is blank after opening extension
- Business infographic layer is not accessible
