As of January 1st, 2023 all updated versions of Adobe Creative Cloud applications moving forward will no longer show, recognize or activate Postscript Type 1 fonts.
Once these new Creative Cloud updates are installed on your computer, they will display Postscript Type 1 fonts as a “missing font” in each of the Creative Cloud applications. This means you will not be able to activate and use Postscript Type 1 fonts in any project moving forward.
Older versions of Abode Creative Cloud applications will continue to support Postscript Type 1 fonts until support for these applications end. End of support for Adobe applications is one version behind the latest release version (CC2023 - 1 = CC2022).
NOTE - Encapsulated or Embedded Postscript Type 1 fonts in Portable Document Format (PDF) or Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files will still display after support has ended. Any text edits for these projects will be unavailable after January 1st, 2023 unless using a previous supported version as noted above.
