Using web fonts in Muse


Adobe Muse is no longer adding new features and will discontinue support on March 26, 2020. For detailed information, see the Adobe Muse end-of-service FAQ.

Adobe Muse is a desktop application for quickly designing web pages with intuitive, visual tools. It doesn’t involve any code, so it’s especially approachable for people without HTML or CSS experience.

Adobe Fonts (previously called Typekit) is integrated with Muse, enabling users to select custom web fonts when designing their websites. For more information about typography in Muse, see the Muse Help documentation.
