How does one uninstall the Concept and Variable fonts?
Thanks for reaching out. In order to remove fonts, please follow the help articles I have shared below:
If the fonts have been activated by Adobe Fonts, please follow this help article to deactivate them. Hope it helps.
In my case its Acumin Variable that seems to be pre-installed by Adobe and cannot be removed, via Font Book or any other way so far. It is very anoying.
They are in the Illustrator application package (on the Mac)
On Windows it should be the Support files folder > Required
If you move something out of there, you will have to at least watch out if it affects Illustrator when working.
I don't think you will be able to remove them easily.
The AcuminVariableConcept.otf, MinionVariableConcept-Roman.otf, SourceCodeVariable-Roman.otf and SourceCodeVariable-Roman.otf are installed in the Illustrator application and are required fonts for InDesign.
It's actually quite easy. Just search for the font name (or go to Indesign 2021>Resources>Required>Fonts) and rename them. To me it looks like Indesign works just fine without them 😉
Are you working on a Mac?
If yes, these annoying Variable Concept or Variable Color fonts are located in one of the folders named fonts, Fonts, VariableFonts, AcadFonts, etc. (I'm not exactly shure which one as I can't check it because I removed them).
