Can I use an activated Adobe font in Affinity Designer,...?


Recommended Posts

Never mind.  I think I remember trying to do this a while ago and I think the answer was that activated Adobe fonts can only be used in Creative Cloud apps. But, they are not even showing up in the CC software interface.

I will try and find a similar font that I can install on my computer and use.

Yes, you should be able to use activated Adobe Fonts with any apps both on Windows and macOS. Sometimes they need to be reactivated as unused fonts will auto-deactivate at some point.

Perhaps there is something wrong with the font cache, try if deactivating the fonts not behaving as expected, then signing off from the CC, rebooting and signing in and reactivating the fonts helps.

If they're not even showing up in CC, something's wrong.

That is what I had to do!  Deactivate and then reactivate the font.  I had CC open so maybe that helped.  Now I see the fonts in Designer (and MS Word).

Thanks guys!
