Adobe Experience Manager version Differences: Touch UI

In this post I would like to point out some of the differences in the touch UI in terms of some of the most used features and where to find them for AEM 6.0, 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3.  I will focus mostly on where things like the Sites, Assets and CRXDELite consoles are located and some other options within some menus or authoring modes.

Main Menu

  • Access to the Classic UI welcome page clicking on the little monitor icon when you hover over the projects item.  For AEM 6.3 the icon is no longer there, but, you can still reach the classic UI by going to http://localhost:4502/libs/cq/core/content/welcome.html
  • Sites Console
  • Assets Console
  • Tools Submenu (For aem 6.2+ it is the hammer Icon)

Tools Menu

  • CRXDE Lite
  • In order to reach the Package Manager you will have to click on Operations for AEM 6.0/6.1 and on Deployment for AEM 6.2/6.3


  • For AEM 6.0/6.1 you will have to click on the Packaging item before you reach the package manager
  • For AEM 6.2/6.3 you will have to first click on the Deployment item on the left
  • Packages (Package manager console)

Edit page

When you are on the sites console
  • For AEM 6.0/6.1 Hover  over a page and then click on the pencil Icon to edit the page
  • For AEM 6.2/6.3 Click on the little thumbnail to the left of the page Name ("English" in this case) and then on edit at the top of the page

Author page

  • Options to Publish or Unpublish pages
  • Page properties
  • Open Classic UI.  AEM 6.3 seems to lack this option, to go into the classic UI just replace "/editor.html" with "/cf#" in the URL

Authoring modes

  • Edit (Pencil Icon for AEM 6.0)
  • Preview, for AEM 6.1+ it should be at the same level as the edit mode (Eye Icon for AEM 6.0)
  • Design. AEM 6.0 lacks this mode for the Touch UI, you will have to change first into the classic UI and make your changes there.
