Caslon font why not automatically become Adobe Caslon Pro?

The branded font we use has been Caslon. Had this font forever (over 10 years) & if memory serves I received this free font from Adobe. Just transitioned to a new Dell laptop and it is not allowing this font family to install so I have had to replace in most of my files, manually, all of the text using Caslon with the Adobe Caslon Pro font family. The Adobe Caslon Pro option doesn't always show up as an option in the replace pop-up window when fonts are missing. A big hassle for me that should have been an automatic change to my mind since essentially the same font. Is there any way to make a global change to a file to switch from Caslon to Adobe Caslon Pro?

Hi there,

 

I’m sorry you ran into trouble here. Though Caslon and Adobe Caslon Pro are very similar and they are essentially entirely different fonts as far as the computer can tell. Caslon isn’t owned or produced by Adobe but Adobe Caslon Pro is. Both of these fonts are digital versions of a very classic typeface called Caslon of which there are many variations.
I’m sorry we can’t automate this for you. I hope this shed some light on the situation.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
