Typekit is a subscription service offering access to a vast library of fonts for use in desktop applications and on websites.
A Typekit Portfolio plan is included with your Creative Cloud subscription. Creative Cloud trial members have access to a selection of fonts from Typekit for web and desktop use.
You can choose a typeface from one of Typekit's many foundry partners, then sync it to your desktop with Creative Cloud—or use it on the Web. Synced fonts are available for use inside all Creative Cloud apps, such as Photoshop or InDesign, as well as other desktop applications, such as Microsoft Word.
The Creative Cloud desktop application must be installed on your computer to sync fonts. If it is not already installed, download and install it.
By default, Typekit is turned on, so that it can sync fonts and make them available in your desktop applications.
At this point, if you already have fonts selected for sync in your web browser, they automatically begin syncing with your computer.
You can access the Typekit library from multiple places. Use any combination of these methods to best fit new font selection within your existing workflow.

Click an individual font's card to see more details about the typeface, including type specimens for all available weights and styles.
In the Use This Family window, specify where you’d like to sync the font to your desktop or add it to a kit for use on the Web.
The fonts are synced to all computers where you've installed the Creative Cloud application. To view fonts, open the Creative Cloud desktop application and click the Fonts panel.
To use the fonts you’ve synced, simply open any desktop application and go to the font menu. You will see your synced fonts in the list of options. Some desktop applications, like Microsoft Word, may require a restart after a new font has been synced.

You can view synced fonts on your computer using the Fonts panel in the Creative Cloud desktop app or in your Typekit.com account.
To remove synced fonts from your computer:
- In the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app's Fonts panel, click Manage Fonts. The Synced Fonts page opens in a browser window. You can also log in to Typekit.com and go to your Synced Fonts page directly.
- To the right of any fonts you no longer want to use, click Remove.
You can enable or disable font sync. Disabling font sync will stop syncing fonts and remove any synced fonts from your computer.
If you go offline while the Creative Cloud desktop application is running and you are signed in, any synced fonts will still be available to use. Any changes you make to your font sync selection on Typekit.com will not be reflected until you restore connectivity.
If you launch the Creative Cloud desktop application while offline, fonts will not be available and will not display in standard font menus.
