Using fonts from Adobe in Xcode

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to use a font in Xcode that I have used in Illustrator? I have built a UI in Illustrator but now I can't seem to get the font (Marvin), which means the whole UI will need to be redone to create a different feel. Is there a way to get the .ttf file onto my desktop so I can use it in Xcode?

Hi @jj88,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, it isn’t allowed under the Adobe Fonts licensing. The fonts have to be activated via Creative Cloud; you don’t get a copy of the file. Also, if you are using Xcode to develop a software app, you can’t bundle any Adobe Fonts with the app.

You can see this article for more help:https://helpx.adobe.com/fonts/using/font-licensing.html#act-app

For this project, you would need to purchase the appropriate font license from the foundry. Marvin is from

Let us know if that helps.

Hi Tarun,

 

Thank you for your reply. So are you saying that although we have a subscription to Adobe products, the fonts within Adobe products (Illustrator for example) cannot be used in our for-commercial-purposes designs? What fonts are we meant to use, or are we to buy each font separately every time we want to use a font for a commercial application?

 

Kind regards,

JJ

Hi @jj88,

 

The article which I have shared above will cover all your questions related to Adobe font licencing. Adobe Fonts are licensed for many commercial uses but not to be bundled into a commercial software program. If you want to discuss a specific use which is not covered in this article shared above, please let us know about that.
