  • Photoshop can't handle creating text with very many fonts installed.
    Are some of these Adobe fonts? It's very easy to go to and deactivate the ones you don't need to use today. I think it's safe to say that none of us need 2500 fonts installed every single day. - Source: Reddit / 22 days ago
  • Font organizer. Do you use one and if so, how does it help your workflow?
    I don't see any way to browse Adobe Fonts inside of the Creative Cloud app?? It only shows the fonts I currently have activated, and then there's a "Browse more fonts" link that opens in my browser. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

    If I can give you some advice, also try other fonts and also other images, the image you have chosen has that light which I guess is the sun in the trees, but for a while it looked like a strange halo or flare to me, which might look strange to people looking at it, I also recommend you to try other fonts which you can find on many platforms including one ''Adobe Fonts'', maybe some fonts that are more balanced... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • I need to identify these fonts for a project. Does anyone know what their names are? Many thanks!

  • Adobe Fonts not activating?
    My solution is usually to reboot the PC. But then that's my go-to fix with any PC related issues, and it almost always works. If it doesn't, I go to and deactivate the fonts and then reactivate them again, and then wait for the taskbar notification that those fonts have been activated. In extreme cases I disable and re-enable them using the Adobe CC Desktop app, but the UI is so poorly implemented... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago

    I have a similar issues concerning fonts with the Adobe Fonts website and the Creative Cloud desktop app. On the website, I can activate fonts just fine with no trouble at all. However, the fonts never appear on the desktop app which claims I have none active, despite them appearing on the website. They also don't appear as activated on Adobe Illustrator. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
