We heard you! Text and Adobe fonts are now available in Fresco 2.0 on the iPad.
Choose from the already downloaded Adobe Fonts.
Browse through fonts that are currently installed on your device.
Browse additional fonts by tapping on the More fonts.
Additionally, you can search for a particular font. If you are logged in using your personal Adobe ID, you get the ability to add more fonts by tapping the + icon on the top of the menu. This helps you to add third-party fonts to Adobe Creative Cloud which are also activated automatically across all the Creative Cloud services.
Note: All the text layers can be edited in Photoshop and brought back to Fresco for further editing.
For more info on text layer support, please see Add and Modify Text in Fresco.
In case you need assistance with the text and fonts in Fresco, please see Troubleshooting font issues.
This is a great release. I'm glad people are finally able to experience these new features
crying with delight
I must be the only person who would prefer Fresco to have remained a drawing only app.
Will it become possible to hide the tools I never want to use so I can keep my toolbars cleaner?
I don't know that the ability to hide toolbar functions is planned (although I completely understand the usefulness of it). Have you posted this request on UserVoice?
I think I did Sue, as soon as I saw Text was coming! LOL
Yea, I remember seeing that feature request (to keep Fresco a focused drawing & painting app) but I mean the suggestion to customize the UI by hiding icons you don't use?
Sadly I think the direction of Fresco is too far gone to consider things like keeping it as a drawing & painting app. The more tools I see added, the more it is becoming another bloated app and the obvious direction will be that the UI will need to hide icons, just to give the developers a chance to add everything that everyone wants. So far I'm seeing existing tools added from Ps, Ai, Id, and as you've mentioned the upcoming ability to Animate so that brings An into the app as well.
Any plan to make this available on the desktop version? I run a windows surface book 2.
Yes. Text is definitely coming to Fresco on Windows.
