When I said "right next to this one" I meant it literally. The two threads are permanent topics, and the other thread is directly below this thread. I didn't think I was asking too much to suggest that somebody go there.
However, I will edit my original post to add a link to that other post.
"There are certainly some issues that I do know of that make it harder or less financially viable for US companies to treat their European customers on equivalent terms to their US and Canadian customers. I don't know the issues around the registration incentive in particular, and I will try to find out."
Well, I'm a North American registered user. I registered my CS Premium yesterday in my account - but I've not seen or heard a whiff about how the heck I will get hold of the Brioso fonts. So what's the story here? Will I get a download email - or a snailmail letter! - about this in a month or two?
Thomas Phinney, I'd appreciate if you could please clarify.
While I was registering as part of the installation process, Safari conked out. So, I didn't get Brioso either. I called Customer service and found out the information that's already been offered. I didn't have to reregister. I just went into my account and to the registration page. I clicked on the small button at the bottom, and downloaded Brioso with no problem. If you do have a problem, call Customer service. I found them very helpful. Of course, this only works if you've ordered one of the Suites.
Granted, the link to the free font package is poorly placed and hard to find. I had a similar problem. I re-registered, found the fonts, downloaded them, and found that I had no duplicate registration.
Would a European purchaser of the Creative Suite who registered online, ignored the notice about the registration offer being available to US and Canadian purchasers only, and downloaded the Brioso fonts, be penalised in any way?
Sorry if I've mised this somewhere.... it's a long post but am I the only one missing KentenGeneric. I have no mention of the beastie... all the other fonts in the list seem to be accounted for. Is this a error in the list or am I just going mad!
I did some checking. Although Kenten was bundled with InDesign CS until some of the very late builds, for some reason they decided not to ship it (at least, not with the regular western version). So I have removed it from the list of fonts, and adjusted the totals accordingly.
That's great that we get all these fonts for no additional cost, but, why can't Adobe ask if I want to install additional fonts or better still, place them somewhere where I can manage them with a font manager, instaed of just being always available for all CS products everytime.
