I have the same question. I'm running a college Student Media program with 34 machines all with Adobe CC. Students want to use different fonts and can only access via their Adobe ID. Once they log out we have to reserialize and this can be tedious if we are having 100+ students come in and out of the building in a week.
It would be awesome to have the fonts installed automatically or to have TypeKit available to device licenses by default.
Hoping this can be addressed ASAP!
> Is there any way of allowing students to access Typekit features on computers with device licenses, without having to log in to AdobeCC?
No, unfortunately, font sync will not work with Creative Cloud device licenses. In order to sync fonts, you have to be able to sign in to the Creative Cloud desktop application with a named-user Creative Cloud subscription.
There aren't any immediate plans to change this, as it is how font sync is designed to work, but I will share your comments with the rest of the Typekit team.
To add new fonts to a device-licensed Creative Cloud, you would need purchase a desktop font license (outside of Typekit) for any fonts that you wish to have available on these computers. Once the fonts are downloaded and installed, they will be available in all of the desktop software, including your Creative Cloud programs.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
Thank you for the information Liz, I appreciate it.
Just for your info Adobe, I'm in the same boat - maybe this would be a helpful feature to make available to device licenses? Or, is there a way to spend a small fee to package a limited number of named-user licenses with a volume purchase of device licenses?
We too ran into this issue. The answer, at least for those using InDesign is to use the File, Package feature (instead of File, Save). This will retain all the fonts associated with the publication. Then opening the package on a different machine you will find that the file has maintained its fonts.
