Hi @Rick22886273nv7v You can find out the type of each by looking in the fonts folder on your system for fonts you have installed. I use Windows, so the folder is found under C:\Windows\Fonts. Double-click on any font to open a window and further check the font type. If you have any Adobe Fonts activated through your CC subscription, those are not Type 1 fonts. If you don't have the font installed or activated, you'll need to find the original foundry and look at the font description. Hope that ...

I have 343 Type One fonts.

Over $10,000 in cost and countless documents that will be affected.

Do you know why is Adobe ending support for them?

Hi @christineb56206384, Basically, Type 1 fonts have become a depreciated format. You can read Adobe's notice here about the decision. https://helpx.adobe.com/fonts/kb/postscript-type-1-fonts-end-of-support.html

 

So, starting in January 2023, any PostScript Type 1 fonts will not appear in your font list. Any documents using PostScript Type 1 fonts will trigger a “missing font” error when opened. This is certainly a big challenge for many in the design community. The best thing you can do is start now in making your font replacements, as many of us have been doing since this notification. We're consciously choosing alternate font types (TrueType or OpenType fonts) for new projects, and disabling Type 1 fonts from our systems as we find replacements. I'm sorry the news isn't any better than that.
