I created a few brochures for print last year and the headline font was NimbusSansCondensed Bold. I recall (hopefully correctly) that I used typekit for the font. Is it retired - because it is not available  anymore? I paid for typekit, used the font and now I have to go buy the font again elsewhere to make edits? Can someone clarify please

thanks in advance

Hi Mokani,

 

Thank you for reaching out. I have checked at my end on windows and i am able to see the fonts. Please see the attached screenshot below:

Would you mind confirming if you have paid Typekit subscription or free? We would also suggest checking the same font on any other machine.

 

Let us know if that helps.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi Harshika,

thank you for responding.

I have a subscription Creative Cloud All Apps, Annual plan, paid monthly (ongoing for many years). I use only one apple mac so the work was not generated elsewhere. The fonts in the screengrab above are also available to me but they are very different to the one I used last year. The line lenghts are much longer now. All my documents reflowed when I tried the fonts available on typekit this week. The only solution I could find in time for my deadline was to buy again buy from a supplier and I had to pay another £30 for a license (uk). Here is a screen grab to show the difference between Nimbus Sans Condensed Bold (top row) and Nimbus Sans Cond L (bottom row). They are really different except the names.Screenshot 2020-01-24 at 18.35.15.png

thanks for looking into this for me

Hi,

 

I am having the exact same problem. I've been using Nimbus Sans Cond Bold through typekit and realized it doesn't seem available anymore.  Now the font on typekit (Nimbus Sans Cond L Bold) looks very different.

Screenshot 2020-02-14 15.35.00.jpgI am having the same issue with Nimbus Sans Cond Black which is not displaying as Black but as Bold. What I actiavted online isn't what's displaying on screen in Illustrator or Indesign.

This might seem weird but trying using Nimbus Sans Condensed Black as a replacement - there's a chance that it may display as Bold (I'm saying that because it's actually happening with me). I know this isn't the proper solution but maybe it helps as a short term work around?

I'm having the same issue and switching weights doesn't help. It's just not the same font.

sorry to hear that, adobe didn't help me at all, I hope they help you. I
had to buy the font again elsewhere (at my own expense) otherwise I
couldn't have matched the headlines in my brochure which, was on a re-run
with a few amends. I wasted so much time and energy on this... and Adobe
just ignored my problem.

Best of luck
Love to hear if they help you
