Illustrator on the iPad provides a comprehensive typography feature set that helps you find the right font for your artwork. You can access thousands of fonts as well as add your own fonts directly from the Illustrator on the iPad app. The fonts are added to your Creative Cloud library and become available across Creative Cloud apps.
If a font used in your document is not available on your iPad, Illustrator automatically substitutes the missing font with the nearest matching font available on your iPad. When you open a cloud document that contains fonts not currently available on your device, Illustrator on the iPad automatically activates Adobe Fonts in the background and substitutes the missing font with an identical font.
If you can access the font file, you can instantly add the missing font in the Illustrator app. For details, see Quickly add a missing font.
