Creative Font _HOT_
Fonts that are installed in the Fonts folder on your computer are licensed under their own individual end user licensing agreements. These FAQs do not apply to those fonts; contact the font foundry directly with any questions on the font license.
Yes. You can use the fonts in any desktop program (such as Adobe Photoshop) to create images or vector artwork, which you can then use for any purpose. This includes generating a PDF, EPS file, or bitmapped file such as a JPEG or PNG.
No. You may not create a product that is individual glyphs from the font files, e.g. an alphabet set of each letter to spell out your own phrase. Creating products from individual glyphs is not allowed in any format.
No. The font licensing does not allow you to use the fonts in any way where your customers select and apply fonts to their own text as part of the design. This applies to both digital and physical products, such as greeting cards, T-shirts, and coffee cups.
You may create custom designs for a client on a one-to-one basis, but may not offer customizing products with fonts from your Creative Cloud subscription through a website or other service. Allowing your customers to create their own content requires a custom license, which needs to be purchased directly from the foundry or from an authorized reseller.
No. The font licensing does not allow you to embed the fonts within mobile or desktop applications. This requires an appropriate license to be purchased directly from the foundry or one of their authorized resellers.
Yes. The fonts can be embedded in SWF files and AIR applications, when subsetted using authoring applications like Adobe Animate or Flash Professional. As with any electronic document, the fonts must only be used for viewing or printing existing content, not for creating new or dynamic content.
Yes. You can use the fonts to produce film or video content for in-house, commercial exhibition, or broadcast use, using tools like Adobe Premiere Pro or Adobe After Effects. The fonts may also be used in video content which will be distributed online through services such as YouTube or Vimeo.
No, there is no limit on the number of fonts you can select to activate. However, we recommend de-activating fonts you no longer use to keep your font menu short and optimize performance. The fonts can always be re-activated if you need to use them again.
No. The font licensing isn't compatible with server installation. You will need to purchase the appropriate font license for any fonts that you want to install on your server from the font foundry directly or the foundry's authorized reseller.
No. The font licensing isn't compatible with InDesign Server. You will need to purchase the appropriate font license for any fonts that you want to use in InDesign Server from the font foundry directly or the foundry's authorized reseller.
Yes and no. Any file which embeds the font data, such as PDF or image formats, and any text that has been rasterized or outlined, will continue to display correctly. These types of files may be reproduced and distributed independent of your subscription status.
Documents that reference fonts on your computer, such as an InDesign or Word document, will show a missing fonts warning and use a default font from the program in place of the one from Adobe Fonts. You would need to purchase a new font license and install the fonts on your computer to continue to display and edit these files.
The client needs to set up their Creative Cloud subscription before the web font project can be transferred. The full font library is included in most paid Creative Cloud subscriptions (with a few exceptions).
You may create custom designs for a client on a one-to-one basis, but may not offer customizing products with fonts through a website or other service. Allowing your customers to create their own content requires a custom license, which needs to be purchased directly from the foundry or from an authorized reseller.
No. The font licensing does not allow you to embed the fonts within mobile or desktop applications. This requires an appropriate license to be purchased directly from the foundry or from an authorized reseller.
No. Adobe doesn't offer the ability to locally host fonts. Our web font hosting delivers fonts from a globally-distributed content delivery network (CDN), which performs much better and is more scalable than using local hosting for static assets.
No. If you cancel your Creative Cloud subscription, the web fonts will no longer be available to your websites. Any site using the web fonts will display the fallback fonts specified in your font stack or your browser's defaults.
The Adobe Fonts library is included with all paid Creative Cloud subscription plans, and fonts can be activated on your computer via the Creative Cloud desktop application. Adobe Font Folio is a collection of perpetually-licensed font files to download and install locally on your computer.
Font Folio has Adobe's traditional, perpetual end-user licensing agreement for desktop publishing. The fonts in Font Folio are not licensed for web use. Font licensing for Adobe Fonts includes web and desktop use for everything in the font library, as long as you have an active Creative Cloud subscription. Font Folio supports server use, while Adobe Fonts does not.
You can access the activated fonts in the Active fonts panel inside Creative Cloud desktop app and in the font list in your desktop apps. Some desktop applications, like Microsoft Word, may require a restart after a new font has been activated.
Keep your active font list short to optimize performance. Fonts you deactivate are available in the Previously active tab inside the Creative Cloud desktop app, so you can easily activate them again at any time.
If you launch the Creative Cloud desktop app while offline, fonts won't display in the font lists of your apps. However, if you go offline while the Creative Cloud desktop app is running, activated fonts will still be listed and available to use.
Adobe fonts that have not been used in over 150* days need to be reinstalled for use in older Creative Cloud and third-party apps. Creative Cloud keeps apps running smoothly by periodically cleaning up these fonts. (*Number of days is subject to change.)
You can quickly reinstall fonts on the Adobe Fonts website by selecting the cloud icon next to the font name in your Active Fonts list. Once the fonts are reinstalled, they will show up as usual in all your font menus.
When you activate fonts from Adobe Fonts, they will appear in the font menus of all your desktop applications, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Microsoft Office, and iWork. Use these fonts for print design, website mockups, word processing, and more.
Add tags or filters to refine the list of fonts. Use our natural language search tags to browse fonts that fit the mood of your project, or you can filter by classification (such as serif or sans serif), properties (x-height, width, or weight), or language.
Once the fonts are active, they are added to the font menu in each application, alongside all of your locally installed fonts. They will be immediately available in most programs, but a few need to be restarted to add new fonts to the menu (for example, Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office).
You can activate as many fonts as you'd like, but we recommend keeping your active font list short to optimize performance. Every font you deactivate is tracked in your Previously Active tab, so you can easily activate them again at any time.
You can quickly reinstall fonts on the Adobe Fonts website by clicking the cloud icon next to the font name in your Active Fonts list. Once the fonts are reinstalled, they will show up as usual in all your font menus.
Choosing the right font pairings is an essential part of good graphic design. Whether you're designing a website, artistic documents or simply exploring typography you'll want to make sure you choose fonts that don't clash with each other. It's important to remember "contrast not conflict".
We've decided to give you a helping hand by rounding up some of our favourite font pairings into one handy list. First and foremost, we'll be starting out with some handy tips about what to look for if you opt to make your own font pairings. Once you scroll past that, you'll find our our favourite examples of the perfect font pairings. For further font inspiration, we have a round up of the best free fonts available now as well as a guide to the best places to download them.
Enterprise user? With an enterprise subscription only admins can upload the fonts. As an end-user you can only use the custom fonts that your admin has shared. (If you are an admin, see Upload and share custom fonts with enterprise users.)
When you add a font to Creative Cloud, Adobe will not modify it, but we will store the font in Creative Cloud, and may make and distribute copies for your use on computers and other devices where you log in with your Adobe ID. Adobe will not distribute or make your font available to any other user.
Ensure that your use of any Adobe features complies with your EULA. If you are unsure if your EULA permits adding a font to Creative Cloud and its use through this feature, contact the foundry, designer, or reseller from whom you purchased your EULA. 041b061a72
