Long time user, first time writer. I've just activated a bunch of new fonts from the Adobe Fonts database. I'm on an up-to-date MacBookPro with Catalina. Is there any reason the new fonts wouldn't show up in Fontbook? It would make my life much easier if I could evaluate all my design resources in one spot.
Moved to the Adobe Fonts community since this isn't a general Type & Typography question …
Fonts from the Adobe Fonts service are privately installed on your system and although available to applications that use system functions to enumerate the fonts, the actual font files are not available to Fontbook or to the users other than by use in the applications.
A similar situation is true with Windows.
