Anyone currently subscribing to Adobe Creative Cloud, be it a single app plan or the full all apps plan, can legally acquire Myriad via one or more places. Some applications, such as Adobe Illustrator, have variants of Myriad built into the application. The Adobe Fonts service offers pretty much the entire Myriad Pro type family to sync. That's 40 static OpenType fonts. There are Arabic, Bengali, Devangari and Hebrew versions of Myriad available to sync. The old "stressed" Myriad Wild typeface can also be activated. Finally the variable version of Myriad (Myriad VF) is also available. For a long time Illustrator has included the "variable concept" version of Myriad to only use in Illustrator. Myriad VF can be activated where any application installed on the computer can use it (provided if that application supports variable fonts).
Hey Toni... ( & anyone else who is pulling their hair out and screaming "Where the hell is the Myriad-Roman font!!!" )
I ran into this same dilemma... Here's the solution:
Myriad-Roman is the default font used by Illustrator CS. (In Windows) It can be found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts\Reqrd\Base... The file is called "wmr_____.pfm". Click on it and you will see that it is in fact the "Myriad-Roman" font. Two files are required to use a Type 1 font under Windows. The PFB file contains the actual font outline data. The PFM file contains metric data including kerning.
Hope this helps. Keep rockin' it!

Hey Jeremy, you ROCK!
I was really frustrated after a windows reinstallation and din't have any idea from where to get back this particular font, as i didnt' know where it originally came from.
Produce publications on a Windows machine for a government agency whose standards requre Type1 fonts . Occasionally we send our materials to newspapers and outside service bureaus that require Type1. I led a migration from PageMaker to InDesign CS4 so my work computer still has the Type1 fonts.
Since I am a contractor, access to my office is limited to 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Occasionally, need to touch up a file or change it outside those hours and my computer at home is a Mac. Have InDesign CS4 and the entire Creative Suite 5 onboard. But the Mac did not have the PostScript version of Myriad, Myriad Pro just isn't a close enough match to Myriad Roman to bring the files back into my Windows computer at work. The spacing and leading change.
Then, in my "old programs" CD case, found my old Adobe PageMaker 7 disk and found the PostScript version of Myriad!
Thanks for the hint, I found the font in that location after installing an older Photoshop Elements 2 (checking only the sample and support options in the installer).
On a mac, go to the Adobe Illustrator CS3 (possibly other CS3 or earlier apps) and right click (or ctrl click/contextual click) on the application and select "Show Package Contents". Then, navigate to Required/Fonts and you should find a series of MyriadRom fonts. Make sure you don't move them out of this folder, but "Copy" then into another location. You can use copy and paste from the clipboard, or on a mac, hold down the option key after you start dragging the files to another location. From there you can install the fonts in the normal ways. Save a copy somewhere for future use.
