Many thanks

Century Gothic has never been bundled with any Adobe software. Century Gothic is a Monotype knock-off of ITC Avant Garde and is distributed by Microsoft with Windows.

On MacOS, Microsoft provides access to the Century Gothic typefaces. In earlier versions of Microsoft Office, installation of the Office applications resulted in Century Gothic and many other Microsoft “system fonts” to be directly installed in the MacOS fonts directory. However, with the most recent versions of Office, Microsoft “hides” such fonts as resources within the application itself (i.e., Microsoft Word=>Contents=>Resources=>Fonts) such the fonts may only be seen and used within the Office applications. If you have a MacOS system that had an older version of Office, the fonts are visible and accessible, but not if you have a newer system with a recent version of Office.

But the bottom line is that the availability of Century Gothic is not an issue associated with Adobe. Sorry!
