Loaded Type 1 Fonts Fail in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop

Post by Erwin Denissen » Fri Aug 24, 2012 11:00 am

Several customers have reported issues with loaded Type 1 fonts not showing in Adobe software like Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. It doesn't matter if you use CS4, CS5, CS5.5 or CS6; all these products refuse to show these Type 1 fonts.

From what we have experienced so far; Adobe software needs to know the location of available Type 1 fonts, so these fonts have to be installed; loading is just not good enough, and will fail.

If you happen to know a solution that allows you to use loaded Type 1 fonts, do let us know. In the mean time, if you need a Type 1 font, do install it through MainType, and it will become available within your Adobe products!

It might be possible that one of the fonts is corrupt, which causes the Adobe software to stop processing the font list. If this is indeed the issue, you should try detect which font is the corrupt one, and remove it.

MainType can help with this, but I also suggest you manually go by all fonts that are located in specific Adobe font folders.
