Adobe Fonts is a massive library that houses a plethora of fonts for use in Adobe products such as InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. However, what if you need to access these fonts outside of Adobe’s system and use them on your own? In this guide, we’ll show you how to find Adobe fonts on your Macintosh computer.
Firstly, open a session of Finder and go to the Go menu. Scroll down and you probably won’t see the “Library” option here. What you need to do is hold the option key down, scroll over to “Library”, and click “Library”. Once you’re in the Library folder, you can go to Application Support and then Adobe. From here, go to Course Ink Plugins Lifetime.
You’ll come across a blank folder, which may seem worthless. However, hold command and shift down and tap the period key. This will bring up the hidden folders so you can see where the fonts are. Click on the period R folder, and this will bring all the fonts that you’ve loaded onto your computer.
Now, to copy the font to your desktop, click on the particular font you want and select “Copy”. Then, go to your desktop for convenience and select “Paste item”. You’ll see you now have this hidden font on your desktop. To unhide it and fix the name, click on it once, delete the period, and change the name to the desired font name.
That’s it! You now have a regular font on your desktop that you can double-click and install into your font book system on your Mac. Do realize that some of these fonts are copyrighted, so make sure to have permission before using them.
In conclusion, finding Adobe fonts on your Mac outside of Adobe’s system isn’t as daunting as it may seem. By navigating through the Library System and finding the hidden files in Adobe and Course Ink and Application Support, you can access any of Adobe’s fonts on your computer.
