Can I use Adobe Cre­ative Suite 5 with macOS Sierra?

CS6 and older ver­sions have mi­nor is­sues with re­cent ver­sions of the sys­tem, but gen­er­ally run well. Be­fore try­ing to use them, you need to in­stall Ap­ple’s old legacy Java run­time, though; it’s avail­able for sys­tems all the way back to OS X 10.7 from ap­ple.co/1Wc1ToK.

How can I put Pages tem­plates in the Dock?

Save the doc­u­ments in Pages tem­plate for­mat to a folder in, say, your Doc­u­ments folder. Next, drag that folder into the Dock to the right of the di­vider to cre­ate a stack for quick ac­cess to the folder’s con­tents. Pages also helps you add tem­plates di­rect to its Tem­plate Chooser, so that they’re of­fered each time you cre­ate a new Pages doc­u­ment.

How can I unin­stall Acro­bat Pro 8?

Try run­ning Acro­bat Unin­staller, which is lo­cated in the app’s folder in Ap­pli­ca­tions. If that doesn’t work, sim­ply drag the whole app folder to the Trash. You can also hunt down and clear out the app’s pref­er­ence files, stored in Li­brary/Pref­er­ences fold­ers at the top of your startup disk and in your Home folder, though they don’t take up much space.

How can I save from Word 2011 to iCloud Drive?

Of­fice 2011 and ear­lier can’t see iCloud Drive, so you can only open and save lo­cal docs or those on your lo­cal net­work. Copy files there man­u­ally, or use Sierra’s abil­ity to put Desk­top and Doc­u­ments there au­to­mat­i­cally.
