How does this touch strip work with existing software?

    I have an old copy of Photoshop because I loath the Cloud thing Adobe now have.
    I spent a fortune on a Cloud version of Illustrator but Adobe couldn't get it to work no matter what or how many hours I spent on Support with them and I had to ditch it.

    I have other stalwart legacy software I use everyday.

    So with this new touch bar that replaces the function keys does that mean all my software is now redundant and I have to buy the latest version of everything that is still available just to get my function keys back?

    Because that's insane.

    No - it will still have the basic functions. You just won't be able to take advantage of the new touch bar options.

    So in an old version of Photoshop for example it will default to a traditional set of function keys?
    Thank you.

    Should default to the current keys and I would think the FN key would trigger the other functions keys.
