When adding your font files, ensure that:
- The file size doesn't exceed 512 MB.
- The font is either a TrueType (.ttf) font or an OpenType® (.otf) font.
- You have the rights and licenses to use the uploaded fonts.
To learn more about how Creative Cloud manages the fonts you upload, see Font usage and rights.
Upload your fonts to the Creative Cloud desktop app to use them across Adobe apps and other desktop applications.
Enterprise user? With an enterprise subscription only admins can upload the fonts. As an end-user you can only use the custom fonts that your admin has shared. (If you are an admin, see Upload and share custom fonts with enterprise users.)
Make sure to read and understand the end user license agreement (EULA) that describes the permitted rights and uses for your font, and to avoid any feature or workflow that violates your EULA — or abstain from using this feature entirely. To help you decide, here are some of the ways that fonts are managed when they are added to Creative Cloud with this feature.
When you add a font to Creative Cloud, Adobe will not modify it, but we will store the font in Creative Cloud, and may make and distribute copies for your use on computers and other devices where you log in with your Adobe ID. Adobe will not distribute or make your font available to any other user.
Through Creative Cloud, you’ll be able to select your font from the Fonts menu in Adobe applications and services for desktop publishing — as if you had installed the font yourself. As with any font you install, your font EULA may prohibit some uses. For example:
- Embedding the font in a PDF or an ebook,
- Using the font in work meant to be distributed for commercial purposes, or
- Copying the fonts for storage or distribution with the Package feature.
Ensure that your use of any Adobe features complies with your EULA. If you are unsure if your EULA permits adding a font to Creative Cloud and its use through this feature, contact the foundry, designer, or reseller from whom you purchased your EULA.
You might not be able to add a font to Creative Cloud for various reasons. It's likely that you're trying to add:
- Fonts that are already installed on your device.
- Fonts that already exist in the Adobe Fonts library.
- Fonts that are not appropriately licensed and cannot pass our validation tests.
Make sure to use the correct font file format and verify that your font is appropriately licensed. You can also convert your font to a supported file format.
