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?
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.
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.
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/

"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.
