Hi!! Adobe fonts are taking too long time to be installed! I guess this is an old issue, I used to have this same problem when this service was called as "Type Kit". I can see the problem continues, unfortunelly. My internet connection is Ok.
I have this problem as well. Bit of a joke when you pay a subscription service fee. It literally takes ages for the font to appear in Illustrator. This never used to be an issue and is adding time onto my days.
It is indeed VERY slow, and @liz_g 's reply doesn't address the matter at all.
We are sorry to hear you are facing trouble while activating fonts. If you've already tried the steps shared by Liz. We would request you to please get in touch with us directly using this link: https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html so that we can assist you further?
Hope it helps.
This is a constant issue among many people. Maybe Adobe should look into it instead of making us do the leg work. Clearly a universal problem!
So expect us to do all this anytime we activate fonts?
This is a little ridiculous... paying hundreds of dollars for a subscription and not able to download 2 fonts in a reasonable amount of time. Taking now 3 hours to download. Something has to be address on Adobe's end.
Did you follow the instructions here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-fonts/fonts-takes-too-long-time-to-get-installed/m-p/10429031#M...
If yes, and it does not solve the issue, yu should follow the instructions here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-fonts/fonts-takes-too-long-time-to-get-installed/m-p/11427439#M...
I can confirm that my computer has no trouble installing fonts.
There shouldbe a limit to BS. Lis posting has nothing to do with "Slowness of activation" but for using the AFs.
Likewise in my case. Activating a single font can take up to 10 minutes or more and sometimes doesn't work at all (Adobe Illustrator 2020).
Same! I've had this issue for a few years now. It's beyond annoying.
I'll never get anything done at this rate...and I have a ton to do with stringent/urgent deadlines!! THis is why I'm not a fan of cloud based products. Internet down, EVERYTHING DOWN!!
Activation of fonts are taking Waaaayyyy too long! And I have the fastest business internet you can get.
Seriously just googled this to see if this is the norm. Appears so. 😞
Sitting in InDesign now hoping it works, about to try and go through the website in hopes it moves quicker to register.
Is there a way to speed up the installment of Adobe Typekit fonts? I am waiting for minutes and depending on the font, it goes quicker, doesnt install at all or takes restarts... What is going on here?
Yes! Would like to know too! Wheres the refresh button?
Same here. Takes forever to download a tiny font file. Adobe sure knows how "fix" things that weren't broken. This is very detrimental to the workflow and lets be honest....I want an "activate all" button to click before i go to bed so I NEVER have to wait again.
You're messing up, ADOBE
It is a real pain in the arse and is messing up my workflow.
Same here, I activate the font on the adobe fonts page, about 10-15 minutes later it's activated on my desktop. Has anyone found a workaround?
I agree, this is taking forever to just install a font. Unbelievably slow. I have high-speed internet up to 1000 mps download time and this is nuts. It used to be easy to activate fonts, now it's a real PITA. It slows work production down big time. Adobe fix this issue!
It's 2021 and the problem still exists. I'm having the same issue as well. Any updates on this Adobe?
