In addition to delivering fonts to your websites, Typekit also syncs fonts for use in a wide range of applications, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Microsoft Office, and iWork. You can use synced fonts for print design, website mockups, word processing, and more.
Download the Creative Cloud desktop application
Fonts are synced from Typekit to your computer via the free Creative Cloud desktop application. If you do not have the software installed, download it from https://creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud. (If you are asked to sign in, use the same Adobe ID email and password that you use for Typekit.)
Choose fonts to sync
Start by browsing the library of fonts. You can toggle between font collections with the Browse Mode selector at the top of the right sidebar.
To show only those font families available for sync, click select "Sync" under “Available for” in the filtering panel.
Adding additional filters narrows the search results: filter by classification (e.g., serif or sans serif), properties (e.g., x-height, width, or weight), or language. You can combine any number of filters, such as sans serif fonts with low contrast that support both English and Spanish.
The collection of Japanese fonts has slightly different filtering parameters, to enable filtering for kana-only fonts, or style classifications like Mincho, Gothic, Maru Gothic, and Brush. Again, any number of filters can be combined for a more refined search.
When you find a font you like, click “Use Fonts” on the font card, or on the family page.
Select the weights and styles you would like to use, then click the "sync selected fonts" button to sync them to your computer. (You also have the option to add the font to a kit, so you can use it on a website as well.)
The Assets > Fonts tab will be updated when the font has finished syncing, then you can start using it!
(If the fonts don't sync to Creative Cloud, follow the sync troubleshooting guide.)
The fonts from Typekit will be added to the fonts menu in each application, alongside all of your installed fonts. They will be immediately available in most programs, but a few need to be restarted to add the synced fonts to the menu (e.g. Microsoft Office programs).
Synced fonts are available for offline use as long as the Creative Cloud application is running in the background. Quitting the app will make the synced fonts temporarily unavailable.
