But, on that site (the one you listed), I have to pay for the font. I don't have a problem with that, as I've purchased a lot of fonts from Adobe in the past and am happy to have them.
I have InDesign and other Adobe programs on my Mac, and I'm signed up and pay for the use of those programs via Adobe's "Creative Cloud". So I guess I don't understand how Typekit works. Are only some fonts available via Typekit, and if I want others I have to pay for them?
I'll download and pay for the font if I have to, but I don't want to do that if it is available for me as part of what I am already paying for with "Creative Cloud".
I really don't understand how that works, so If you can clarify that for me I'd really appreciate it.
Correct. Typekit doesn't give you access to any Adobe font that you want. Typekit (which was a separate company but was acquired by Adobe) carries a selection of fonts from various vendors, including Adobe. The larger number of fonts are for use on websites. That's because that's the way Typekit started.
In the past two years, some of those fonts have also been licensed for desktop use. Any of the fonts in the collection are available for free as part of your CC subscription.
However, the fonts that are licensed probably won't keep you from ever having to buy fonts. Some of the fonts also may not have all the weights which you might like for a particular project, for example.
OK. Now I understand. Thank you...
