Thank you however InDesign CC 2018 reports a “Startup Alert” when I manually moved the 6.1.4 plugin into it:
“Adobe InDesign cannot load the ExtensisFontManagementIDCC2017.InDesignPlugin plug-in. The ExtensisFontManagementIDCC2017.InDesignPlugin plug-in requires the 12.0 version of InDesign. Please contact the vendor to get a compatible version of ExtensisFontManagementIDCC2017.InDesignPlugin.
Show this alert again?”

Brian,
Manually moving plugins is never recommended.
Plugins are registered to their specific version of FMCore (the core engine that communicates between UTC and the plugins). So they will not work if a mismatch exists.

You will need to install the 6.1.5 update and let it manage the plugin install for you.

My suggestion is for you to remove any plugins you manually installed and run the 6.1.5 installer.

Once completed, the plugin should automatically be installed in your CC2018 application folders.

If it isn’t you can also try installing it from our new Plugin Manager console in the UTC interface.

It can be accessed from the Universal Type Client pull down menu.

Hopefully this helps.

I guess it’s safe to say there is a Server update too. :slight_smile:
