    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Hello everyone! I’m very happy to say we have not only gotten M1 Rosetta emulation working for Stager but were also able to quickly get it working on Dimension as well.

    For anyone who is interested in early access to help us test this version of Dimension or Stager, please use this invitation link to down the build from our prerelease program:

    https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/84B24C36-9306-4AC4-8D7F-5188FF267621/participate/8CD91A3E-C035-48AF-DFF8-3C0B03B87DA1

    I want to apologize again for the extremely long wait on this topic, and thank you for your patience.

    If you have any issues using the builds, please leave a comment on the prerelease program forums so we can track the issues!

    If all goes well we will roll this out officially in September as new Dimension & Stager releases.

    That's great news! I was beginning to lose hope. I'll apply for the prerelease program.

    Jeanette Matthews - It's been several weeks. Is there any news about M1 support for Dimension? Is it being worked on at all? Shall I give up hope?

    Translation:

    When we told you that we were hard at work making Dimension work with Apple Silicon, we were lying. Nobody was or is working on that. We know you're going to be angry, so instead of saying outright we're dropping Dimension; we'll say, "Support for for Dimension is unknown at this time."

    We know that when we bought Substance, you hoped we'd bundle it into your Creative Cloud subscription. We were never going to do that. Why would we? We paid a lot of money for that. Instead we've developed a group of Substance apps that we're charging separately for. Don't you see? We have to kill Dimension to push you to pay up for the Substance app package.

    What about support for Apple Silicon? Remember our history of ignoring Apple's notifications to developers about evolving technology. Remember how we held onto Flash? Remember how slow we were to move to 64 bit? We were kinda hoping the M1 thing was a hoax.

    We're focused on getting you to pay up for the Substance apps, and we know Mac users are a very significant chunk of our customer base; so we'll eventually get around to reluctantly supporting them on Apple Silicon. Don't hold your breath for Dimension.

    Is there any news on this at all? This is so frustrating. I hope they really are working on it.
