Hi, my company uses Benton Sans as a brand font and we've been relying on Adobe Fonts for everything from print to video material.

 

Can I ask why it was removed? As a paying member, it feels like we are getting resources/features pulled from us without notice. I'm frustrated because our team has tight deadlines and I never thought that the stability of having access to a font would be yet another source of worry.

 

As a member who now has to rely on a bootleg version of the font collection (which has compatibility issues and doesn't work great), it feels like major steps backwards. Thanks

Couldn't agree more as we're dealing with the same issue. Never before, in over 15 years of doing design work, have I experienced so many issues in regards to fonts. In hindsight, our biggest mistake was relying on Adobe Fonts. We had 75 fonts deactivated on Monday. Unbelievably frustrating!
