Sign up for early access to desktop font sync
Welcome to the blog archives! This blog post is a little out of date now, and may contain inaccurate information; you’ll find the full story in our updated article.
The original post is available below.
Today, Adobe is announcing an early access program for the new file and font sync capabilities of Creative Cloud. We’re beginning to roll them out in limited batches to Creative Cloud and Typekit subscribers as we continually monitor the quality of the experience.
To sign up for the early access program, fill out the Creative Cloud early access request form. Make sure to use the email address associated with the Adobe ID that you use to log into Typekit. If you haven’t yet linked your Typekit account with an Adobe ID, you’ll need to do that first.
Once you are approved for early access, you’ll receive an email from the Creative Cloud team confirming that the features are activated for your account. At that point, grab the latest version of the Creative Cloud desktop app, log in with your Adobe ID, and select the Fonts tab to sync fonts and begin using them in any of your desktop applications.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you sign up for early access:
- Early access customers will be activated in batches over the coming weeks. File sync and desktop font sync features are not yet enabled for everyone.
- You must have an Adobe ID to sign up for early access. If you have a standalone Typekit subscription, you must have an Adobe ID that is linked to your Typekit account in order to sign up.
- You’ll need a paid Creative Cloud membership or a Portfolio, Performance, or Business Typekit plan to sign up for early access. Customers with a Typekit Trial, Personal, or Enterprise plan don’t have access to desktop font sync.
- All Creative Cloud and Typekit plans will have a limit on the number of fonts a user can sync to their desktop each month, similar to the pageview limits for Typekit web fonts. These limits are still being finalized and won’t be enforced during the early access period.
We heard from many of you who want to know exactly which fonts on Typekit will be available for desktop use via the sync feature. We’ve updated this help document with a complete list of the foundries and faces that will be initially available.
If you have any questions or comments, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re excited to share this feature with you, and we can’t wait to hear what you think.
