See the link above. Currently the adobe font service is down.
This means I cannot access fonts that a client has used in their style guide to prep an Indesign file
for mass production.
This isn't just some small IT issue that we should brush off and predict that will subside over time because we trust Adobe.
This is a big picture problem because we are putting our trust into a company to provide a universal service that alters our workflow when dealing with conditions like my own. I am now anable to continue production of a huge order over a FONT issue. Something before a cloud service, was easy to fix by a simple email to the client.
But if a client is relying on the cloud service then guess what, everyone is screwed because ADOBE reinvented the wheel.
If we are being forced into this cloud corner then why should we pay high dollar subscriptions for it!?
This is an outrage and I for one will not stand for it!!! I hope I am speaking for other who are dealing with this issue today. Something needs to change if this is going to continue.
What happened yesterday is unconscionable. Millions of dollars of lost business and man hours among Adobe users. The suffering Adobe caused it's users is unmeasurable.
Adobe MUST respond with a system that allows us to store our fonts locally. But the way the fonts are set up, I can not work if the internet goes down, and worse, I can not work if Adobe goes down. That is unacceptable.
They also took an insanely long time to repair this catastrophic failure! Unfathomable.
