Hi,

 

Creative Cloud uses its own fonts, authorized just for the CC applications.

 

But what happens to the Adobe fonts one has on the Mac from the times of Creative Suite? Are they left untouched, or are they removed/replaced with the ones in the new form?

 

Paolo

Hi there, Thank you for reaching out. The Creative Suite has included Adobe desktop fonts which are installed in the user’s system folder. They will remain until you move them, delete them, or erase your hard disk. However, some Adobe products include embedded fonts that are not installed in the system fonts folder but are available from your font menu only within the application. Any such fonts will be removed if you uninstall the application. I hope that clarifies! Regards, Anshul Saini
