    So I started building a site in Adobe Muse (pretty much complete now), because I was using a lot of the Adobe CC apps. Now I'm not using most of them, especially if I decide to use PS Elements or Affinity Photo. That leaves me with just the one app (Muse) that I'm now using - and now only for one site. So at this point, I'd like to leave the CC subscription completely but I need to move my Muse stuff to an alternative. Any ideas?

    Ah yup, I was in a similar situation recently and am very happy I did quit my Creative Cloud subscription.

    Unfortunately I never really used Muse so I'm not quite sure what to suggest as an alternative. Do you know any HTML / CSS? It genuinely might be worthwhile learning.

    I did a bit of Googling though and Webflow seems like a popular alternative if you want something that doesn't require you to write any code.

    Looks cool, thanks. But I need to be able to upload via ftp to a hosting service. Googling around now, found Freeway Express but not sure it that will do. I guess I'll keep looking, I have until the 18th to decide.

    I like Macaw ( www.macaw.co ) , but it's certainly not a complete Muse replacement, rather a visual design tool that writes html out in the end. Nice to quickly lay out some code and images. If you don't know any html code, webflow seems like it will fit the bill, though it's also subscription based.

    you can always use finder or a (free) dedicated ftp program like cyberduck or filezilla for the ftp-uploading. should not be too much of a hassle.

    I could be wrong but if I recall correctly Finder only does read-only access for FTP servers.

    CyberDuck is fantastic if you want something free - it's paid on the app store but free from the developer's website.

    The other option which I'm using myself currently is Transmit. Pricey yes but a very solid product.
