I was wondering if somebody know if it's possible to use the new LR CC offline? I am hesitating to transfer my catalog to LR CC. Thanks for your answers

    \$\begingroup\$ this is not a duplicate as the new LR, which confusingly adopts the name of the old product, is an entirely new software with a tight cloud integration. it's not at all clear weather internet is only required for license verification. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Why not ask Adobe ? They ought to know. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Oct 29, 2017 at 14:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ @StephenG Reading the page describing the Oct 2017 Adobe changes and the follow-up blog you find lots of unanswered questions. Understandably. blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2017/10/… blogs.adobe.com/photoshop/2017/10/…. Hence why I too have turned to this forum. \$\endgroup\$

I just tested it and can confirm that it works. However the search is disabled when offline for some reason and for me that would be enough of a dealbreaker to stick to Lightroom Classic.
