Hello,

 

I just installed Mrs Eaves from Adobe fonts, It shows up everywhere (eg Photoshop, MS Powerpoint) but not as an option in the text node in Substance Designer.

 

I am running latest version of Adobe Substance 3D Designer (CC version, updated) on Windows 10. 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thank you

As far as I can tell, the node only shows fonts installed and stored in the Windows > Fonts directory.

Activated CC fonts are stored elswhere (in C: > Users > username > AppData > Roaming > Adobe > Coresync > \plugins > livetype>\ r).

Whether there are any plans for the node to read and use those fonts will need a staff member to comment.

Thank you Dave.

 

I tried to go to that location in the windows file folder - but there aren't any actual font files. If there were I could copy and paste into the windows font folder and it would work.

 

I just contacted Adobe teh support via chat and they are looking into this. But Designer is not really working with Adobe Fonts yet. Like Photoshop does. And that's unfortunate. Because I think you need to go through Designer if you want to get a font into painter. Amd Adobe won't let you download their fonts to the windows font folder. So the only way that I could see would be if designer could sync with Adobe fonts like Photoshop.

 

Thank you. I'll keep you posted on what I hear from Adobe. There is a ticket open on this issue now.

The font files are in the location I gave, within the r folder, but they are packaged differently to the fonts in the Windows Fonts folder. You can see an XML manifest in the c folder, under the same path.

I'd be interested in any feedback you get.

Thanks for that information Dave. I'll post an update when I hear back from Adobe.
