I had an internet outage, as a result, the fonts in my project did not display (pink background with generic font). What can I do to prevent this in the future? I need to have full access to my apps AND fonts in the case of an outage.
If you are syncing fonts via the Adobe Fonts service those fonts require an always-on Internet connection to work. Additionally you have to be logged into your Creative Cloud account. If you want certain specific fonts to work offline you have to buy them if they are commercially sold. In the case of Google Fonts those can be downloaded from the Google Fonts website and installed in the OS (or font management software) the traditional way.
If you launch the Creative Cloud desktop app while offline, fonts won't display in the font lists of your apps. However, if you go offline while the Creative Cloud desktop app is running, activated fonts will still be listed and available to use.
