Why were some Adobe Fonts removed?

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

I have provided two responses on these communities as to what is going on.

 

Please refer to my personal responses (i.e., from Dov Isaacs) at either https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-community-professionals/foundries-leaving-adobe-fonts/m-p/11230... or https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-fonts/font-bureau-fonts-being-retired-awesome/m-p/11219128?page... for detailed information.

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!
