I can't believe that Pantone colors won't be available in 2023 - and that all Type 2 fonts will no longer work. Not good!

In some cases Adobe Fonts may be the answer.

You can search for similar fonts or replace directly with an OTF of the same family either on the site or directly in the software.

One of the easiest work arounds is to just install the pantone colors manually in your swatch panels from your current .acb files. Adobe has not stopped support for that format. They just wont include them in future releases.

Correction - Type 1 fonts will no longer be supported on many platforms not just Adobe.

Also the Pantone situation has been well documented both on this forum and in other media.

Pantone decided to make their digital color book a subscription service and could not come to an agreement with Adobe.

There are work arounds for Pantone and also Open Type replacements for T1 fonts.

Sorry, I misspoke about the Type1 / 2 fonts. I know it has been well documented but I suspect it may be cumbersome.

I do feel your pain about the PANTONE colors. It makes me feel really glad that I have recently retired. Having to deal with the inevitable mess of explaining to clients why we would have to pay extra to use the PANTONE library is something that I am relieved not to have to face.

Exactly - and who has time for workarounds and how many clients will understand the details. So many clients think "Adobe" is a software, not a suite of product.
