Using Adobe Sans
0

Hi

Years ago I had a document where Freehand replaced a font with Adobe Sans, and that looked pretty cool. I'd like to re-create that effect now, but I don't know if that would still work – instead of ATM I use FontExplorer X, it also has Adobe Sans installed. Does anyone know how I can get InDesign or Illustrator to replace a certain typeface with Adobe Sans now?

Thanks!

I.

If you have FontLab you can generate a specific instance of Adobe Sans - then give it a New Name like Adobe Sans Fat or Thin - then generate and load it as a new font. This works with other MM fonts and everything I have tried to get multi masters installed in current versions of Adobe apps have not worked - such as putting font in app specific font folder, or into app package font folder etc.

It's quite easy to get Adobe Sans or Adobe Serif to display in Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Just make a PDF where the fonts are neither embedable nor the base 14.

Ah okay, I will try that and see what works best. Thanks a lot Bojev & Miguel!
