Why is Web Editor Being Phased Out?
Web Editor uses Adobe Flash Player to provide interactive tools and experiences.
In July 2017, Adobe announced that it plans to retire Adobe Flash in December 2020. As one response to this, but also to provide an overall better user experience, the RoomSketcher App was released as early as January 2018. The RoomSketcher App is an application for computers and tablets and is not Flash based.
Most browser vendors have started to include security warnings when using Flash content or have turned off Flash by default. It is expected that support for Flash will be removed completely at the end of 2020 to match the end-of-life direction stated by Adobe.
