Unable to Add or Remove Adobe Fonts in macOS Ventura?

You might face issues adding or removing your Adobe Fonts if you've turned off the Adobe Creative Cloud login item in your Mac's System Settings. Turning this option off also closes the background processes required for Adobe Fonts services to function. Learn how to enable the Adobe Creative Cloud login item. Once you've turned it back on, you'll be able to use your Adobe Fonts again.

Use Adobe Fonts while offline

If you launch the Creative Cloud desktop app while offline, fonts won't display in the font lists of your apps. However, if you go offline while the Creative Cloud desktop app is running, added fonts will still be listed and available to use. 

Use fonts in older versions of Creative Cloud and third-party apps

Adobe fonts that have not been used in over 150* days need to be reinstalled for use in older Creative Cloud and third-party apps. Creative Cloud keeps apps running smoothly by periodically cleaning up these fonts. (*Number of days is subject to change.)

You can quickly reinstall fonts on the Adobe Fonts website by selecting the cloud icon  next to the font name in your Added Fonts list. Once the fonts are reinstalled, they will show up as usual in all your font menus. 

We recommend keeping Creative Cloud software up to date for the best font experience. Learn more about reinstalling fonts that are no longer in use.

Disabling Adobe Fonts removes any added fonts and prevents you from adding other fonts from the service.

  1. Go to the Account icon in the upper-right and select Preferences.

    Select Preferences.
