Hello, i need some help here
So i notice that adobe have some pre-installed fonts like emoji one, myriad, marlett etc (i put the screenshot below). I'm not really sure if all of it was pre-installed adobe or windows. I'm currently using windows 7, and when i look for some fonts like emoji one, it's not on the windows installed font list.
My question is
1. Is it adobe or windows pre-installed fonts?
2. Can we delete it?. I really wanted to work only with some adobe cloud fonts, and some of my purchased (outside adobe) fons. It's nice that we have the cloud filter, but it's a bit annoying that there is no filter for my purchased one, and sometimes it confused my that all of the fonts was blend together with the pre-installed one.

Thank you very much guys 🙂

It's actually quite hard to tell. However, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DELETE THE FONTS THAT COME WITH WINDOWS. You may not like to see them, but it can leave your Windows system broken and unusable. Myriad may come with Adobe software; do not delete it either, it is needed.

Ah, Minion variable, not Minion (weird, eh!). I don't think that's needed.

Hi Fajar,

I think you cannot avoid Minion Variable Concept. Also others.

When using InDesign 2020, 2021 or 2022 for example this OTF font is part of the Resources folder of the application.

 

On my Windows 10 machine for example:

Adobe InDesign 2022/Resources/Required/Fonts/MinionVariableConcept-Roman.otf

 

A screenshot from InDesign's application folder on my German Windows 10:

I'm not sure about this.

Never tried. That's up to you.

If you do and something goes wrong, prepare for a new installation of InDesign.

Don't know why you are confused.

If you delete items in a folder that is named "Required" everything can happen with the application that "requires" the items. Just test it and work on, but prepare for strange things happen while you are working.

 

It's up to you if you want to risk that.

 

As I already said: I never did it and I will never do.
