Does Adobe XD ignore Adobe Fonts Folder?

I would like to use fonts in Adobe XD without having to install them system wide.

I normally do this through Adobe Fonts Folder and it works fine for Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop but this method doesn't seem to work with XD.

I am a font developper and it's a huge hassle for me to install fonts or use font managers because I update new font files all the time. If I install them I have to clean the cache and restart my computer every time.

Hi there,

 

Thank you for reaching out. If I heard you right you're trying to use activated Adobe Fonts in XD. If so, then you should be able to see all the activated Adobe Fonts in XD app without a problem. Have you tried deactivating the fonts from here: https://fonts.adobe.com/ and reactivating them? Try signing out of XD and Creative Cloud and then sign back in.

 

Let us know if that helps. Please let me know if I misunderstood your problem.

 

I will be happy to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi Harshika,
no, I am not using Adobe Fonts. I make my own fonts. I need to test my fonts in Adobe software but I do not want to install the fonts system wide. When testing my fonts in InDesing, Illustrator and Photoshop, I can just place my fonts in the FONTS folder under /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts.

But for some reason this deosn't seem to work for XD. 

So I just want to know if there is a way to use my fonts in XD without installing them

Thanks

You are misunderstanding the question. @defaultiiqzetlw6q89 's question is not related to the Adobe Fonts service (formerly Typekit) at all.

 

 

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts

 

If you place fonts into this folder (there's a Windows equivalent, too), they will become instantly available in Adobe applications, which saves you from installing them system-wide, and eliminates issues with font caching. This is handy for type designers or anyone who works with fonts that are frequently updated. It's a very old feature that isn't well-documented anymore on Adobe's website, far as I can tell.

 

I've been looking for an answer to this as well, and as far as I can tell, Adobe XD does not load fonts from these folders the way that Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop do.
