Hello:

 

I am needing to download a font file from my Adobe fonts.  Currently I can only activate it but cannot download anything.  I need it to upload to my squarespace website.  Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hi there, Thank you for reaching out. The Adobe Fonts can only be activated and cannot be downloaded on your system the same way that your local fonts are, so they won’t show up in your font management software or in the system fonts folder. Hope it helps. Thanks, Harshika

If you want a font file for an Adobe font you will have to buy a license, if anyone sells it. Why not make the logo in Illustrator and place it in Pages and Word? It is unusual to keep remaking a logo.

To be more specific, logos should be stand-alone. You create them in an illustration program such as Adobe Illustrator and then place a version of same in Pages or Word or InDesign or whatever! You should not be recreating a logo every time you need to use it in those layout and word processing programs.

 

Assume you are going to create a logo in Illustrator and then use it elsewhere. For Pages and InDesign, for example, you would save the Illustrator-based logo as a PDF file with the font embedded and import/place the PDF file into the Pages or InDesign document. For Microsoft Word (or Excel or PowerPoint), convert the text to outlines in Illustrator (generally a bad idea, but necessary here) and save the logo as an SVG file. Although on MacOS, Office can import PDF-based content, such support is not particularly good and is non-existent if you bring the Office document to a Windows system (all you end up with there for such imported PDF is a low resolution raster representation of the PDF content). However, Office supports import of SVG very well and as such, SVG with outlined fonts is you solution for Word!

 

PS:   I rarely endorse any “text outlining” since it generally degrades text rendering quality. That having been said, it is better than rasterizing text and at the larger point sizes typically found in logos, the degradation from outlining will be minimized.
