I did somewhere read, that Adobe is phasing out the support for Type 1 PostScript fonts, and that all began with Adobe CS4 apps.
Only OTF fonts (and TTF for legacy) will be supported in the next version of Adobe applications.

We posted about this in 2005. See viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1143

This is news to us. Where did you read or hear about this?


The links point to old information, or am I missing something?

Hello Ervin,
I did read this somewhere on the Adobe Blogs - one of their programmers wrote this, that Adobe is phaseing out the support of Type 1 from their forthcomming products (and that is already with Adobe CS4), because they want to push the selling of their OpenType font products, etc.

The problem is, that now I cannot find that post... it seems they deleted it. I don't know.
