Updates to the Creative Cloud desktop application
The Creative Cloud team has released a new version of the Creative Cloud desktop application, and we recommend that you give it a try if you’re currently using it to sync fonts to your desktop.
This is version 1.9 of the application, and it’s packed with improvements. Most notably for Typekit customers, your fonts will sync more reliably when switching network connections — something we know has irked many of you.
For fresh installations of the app, font syncing will be turned on by default. Previously, you had to navigate over to the Preferences panel to turn syncing “on” before getting started with fonts on your desktop. With this update, you don’t have to fiddle with the controls as much as before. (Likewise, if you’ve already turned syncing off in your current installation of the app, it’ll stay off.)
You can also cut down on the update prompts you see from the application by enabling future updates to automatically download and install in the background. If you need to turn auto-updating off, just uncheck the “Always keep Creative Cloud desktop up to date” box in Preferences > General.
If you’ve already got the Creative Cloud application on your desktop, version 1.9 is available now as an update. If you haven’t installed the Creative Cloud application yet, you can download it here.
