  • Assign users to custom fonts
  • Manage permissions using product profiles

Use Admin Console to assign users to custom fonts. Users assigned to custom fonts can see and use them in the supported mobile apps and Creative Cloud desktop enabled devices.

  1. On the product card for Custom Fonts, click Assign Users.

    Assign users

  2. On the Add User screen, enter the name or email address of the user and pick the user from the drop-down list that is displayed.

    Add users

    The updated list of users displays, and the user receives a notification email.

 Want to learn more about how to manage your users’ access? See Assign users in the Admin Console.

Manage permissions using product profiles

  1. Navigate to Products and select Custom fonts.

  2. In the Product Profiles tab, select New Profile.

  4. Click Save. Your profile is created.

  5. Click the product profile's name and navigate to Permissions.
    In the Permissions tab, set permissions for custom fonts under various profiles. 

     Only the users assigned to the specific profile will be able to use custom fonts under that profile.


End users and Creative Cloud fonts

When you assign users to custom fonts in the Admin Console, they will receive an email notifying them that they have been given access. Custom fonts can be used in supported apps as well as Creative Cloud desktop enabled devices.


Ensure that you have updated the Creative Cloud desktop app to version 5.3 for the end users.

Enterprise end users now have the ability to use two types of fonts from their Creative Cloud desktop app: Active fonts and Custom fonts.

Active fonts

Active fonts are provided by the Adobe Fonts service. End users can select which fonts to activate or deactivate for use across Adobe apps and other desktop applications.

Currently, enterprise users can't add fonts to Creative Cloud.

How can end users activate fonts from Creative Cloud desktop app?


Custom fonts

Custom fonts are fonts that have been shared by an administrator for the end user to use. They can only be added and shared through Creative Cloud by enterprise admins.


If the admin has given custom fonts' access to the end users but they do not see the Custom fonts tab in their Creative Cloud desktop app, they should do one of the following:

  • Sign out and sign back in to the Creative Cloud desktop app
  • Relaunch the app. Use these keyboard shortcuts to force the app to close and restart itself and all associated processes:

                Windows: Ctrl+Alt+R

                macOS: Command+Option+R

If they do not see the custom fonts even after relaunching the app, they should contact their admin to view and use custom fonts.

ccda-custom fonts

The end users can select the Custom fonts tab to view the custom fonts shared by the administrator.
