Adobe Fonts for Mac

  -  Demo
Adobe Fonts for Mac is an online service offered by Adobe Inc. that allows all members of the Adobe Creative Cloud service to access a large font library that can be both integrated into various projects (such as websites) or used locally in ACC productivity applications. Originally brought to the market in 2009 by the company Small Batch, Inc under the app name “Typeface”, this service became part of Adobe in 2011 and was renamed Adobe Fonts in 2018.

This app is part of Adobe Creative Cloud (20+ Apps and Services). It’s FREE for first 7 days, Try Now!

Adobe Fonts for macOS is one of the foundational services found in Adobe Creative Cloud, enabling its subscribers to instantly access several thousand fonts for free, eliminating the need to search for premium fonts elsewhere, and providing ample enough space for experimentation with fonts when projects change artistic direction.

In order to help users to more quickly find fonts they like, It features a powerful search engine that allows not only simple browsing of all available fonts but also a highly effective Visual Search tool that can identify fonts in provided static images. Discovery of new founds can also be done via built-in exploration sections such as Featured Foundries, Explore by Designer, Adobe fonts on Behance, Font Packs, and more. Searching is also streamlined with the presence of font Tags (Friendly, Futuristic, Comic, Rough), font Classification (Serif, Sans Serif, Script, etc.), and font Language (English, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Chinese, etc.).

To initialize Adobe Fonts on your Mac (even when offline), users first have to Activate fonts from inside of Adobe Creative Cloud web or desktop app interface. The option for font download can be found by clicking on the Fonts icon in the top right corner of the app, browse and search for a font, click on the “View Family” button. On that font screen click on the Active Fonts menu and select all styles, font weights, and variations that need to be activated. External apps (such as Microsoft Word) require a full computer restart before an activated font can be detected.

Deactivation of Adobe Fonts for Mac can be done from inside the Creative Cloud desktop app by clicking on the three dots icon “…” near the search field in the top-right corner of the app. There a small dropdown menu will be created with two options – “Deactivate all fonts not in use” and “Deactivate all fonts”. Deactivation of the entire fonts service can also be performed by going into the Preferences  > Services tab.

Note: The full library is cleared for both personal and commercial use. Sign up for a free Adobe ID and try out basic library of over 1,000 fonts.
