Hi,

is it possible to use fonts from typekit in Adobe DPS? If there is a way, how does it work and do i have to use the creative cloud for it?

 

Thanks,

Max

    None I know of without linking to an actual web page.

     

     

     

    Check your font license and use @font-face in your CSS for local HTML files.

    Bob, I think  the question was if it's possible to use typekit, not a local font.

     

    This is a bit tricky. You could use typekit but you have to be online to display the fonts. Also it will be a bit tricky to set a valid domain in your DPS magazine. So it's basically not a good idea to use typekit on your DPS magazine.

    Which is why I answered the way I did. There is no way I know of to use Typekit fonts locally but wanted to give the poster a way to workaround that and have the fonts work without an internet connection.

    been looking at this today.

    instead of supplying a domain name you put in LocalHost and then 127.0.0.1 for the url.

    That works locally, but then not on the iPad, ...there must be a way!

     

    Cheers

    There doesn't have to be a way and quite frankly, I'm sure there's not.

     

    Typekit is for websites. Again, if you want to use a font with an HTML article just use @font-face. It works beatifully.

     

    And please, as I already pointed out...check the license first.

    Thanks Bob, I'm using edge animate, so not sure how to use @font-face, but I'll go back to the animate forums, thanks as ever

    It’s part of the CSS file. To be honest I don’t know how that ties in with Edge.

    Hi Bob,

    what about transforming all the typekit font used in outlines? Is it possible in this case to use the resulting "image" in a DPS doc?

    you need to know.

    Hi Max,

     

    There are now two ways to use Typekit, on your websites and on your desktop in apps like Photoshop or Word.

     

    You might have seen our announcement about Typekit desktop font sync: http://blog.typekit.com/2013/08/08/sign-up-for-early-access-to-desktop -font-sync/

     

    You can read a bit more about this here: http://help.typekit.com/customer/portal/articles/1189216#faq

     

    Excerpt:

     

    "Will I be able to use Typekit desktop fonts in PDFs?"

     

    "Yes, desktop fonts from Typekit will be licensed for embedding in PDFs and other electronic documents, such as EPUB and Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (DPS)."

     

    So, you can use the new sync fonts feature to create DPS files. I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any further questions.

     

    Cheers,

    Ben
