Hi, I know Adobe will be ending support for type 1 fonts and that some fonts will be available through our subscription online activation. But, if we need the phsyical font files so that we are able to access them even if we're not online, is there a way to upgrade? For instance, sending files to a printing company requires the fonts. Basically, what is the best way to upgrade our fonts? We have a huge library collected over the years. Thanks.
Thanks for reaching out. In addition to the helpful suggestions given by Willi, please check out this help article(https://helpx.adobe.com/fonts/kb/postscript-type-1-fonts-end-of-support.html) to know more about end of support for PostScript Type 1 fonts. Hope it helps.
@kristinallen Your post prompted me to look at what Type 1 fonts I have installed so I checked my folder. I don't have too many but some older book projects used Type 1 fonts and so I'm going to swap these fonts out so any future file updates won't be impacted.
Note that in most cases, if the PDF has a Type 1 font embedded, the file will still print correctly even if the fonts are no longer supported by InDesign. Still, I think it's a good idea to know what files could be impacted with this change coming up. Thank you for bringing this up!
