System and subscription requirements

System requirements to sync fonts

Fonts are synced via the free Creative Cloud desktop application, which is available for:

  • OS X 10.7 and higher
  • Windows 7 and higher

It is not possible to sync fonts from Typekit on older versions of OS X or Windows, or on other operating systems, as the Creative Cloud desktop application is not available on those platforms.

What's included in your subscription

The full font library for web and sync use is included with:

  • a paid monthly or annual Creative Cloud All Apps subscription;
  • each seat of a Creative Cloud team subscription;
  • a Portfolio, Performance, or Business standalone Typekit plan;
  • any single-application Creative Cloud plan (except Adobe Acrobat).

A Typekit Free plan with a selection of fonts for web and sync use is included with:

  • the Creative Cloud Photography Plan;
  • the administrative contact for a Creative Cloud team subscription;
  • an Adobe Acrobat single-application plan;
  • trial Creative Cloud subscriptions.

Any of these accounts may be upgraded to a Typekit Portfolio plan to use the full font library.

Creative Cloud is also offered via several educational licensing programs, some of which include a Typekit Portfolio plan and some of which include the Typekit Free plan. However, educational site licenses which allow students to use Creative Cloud applications without an Adobe ID do not include Typekit. Please get in touch with your school's Adobe representative if you have any questions on the particular package that you purchased.

Typekit Enterprise may also sync fonts from the Limited library for sync use, but do not have the option to upgrade to full library access. Please contact with any questions on your Typekit Enterprise subscription.

Purchasing or upgrading a Typekit plan

If Typekit isn’t included in your Creative Cloud subscription, you can either:

  • upgrade to a Creative Cloud plan that does include Typekit, or
  • upgrade your Typekit subscription to one which includes font sync. The Typekit upgrade will bill independently of your Creative Cloud subscription.

To upgrade your Typekit plan:

  1. Sign in to Typekit with your Adobe ID and password.
  2. Visit the plans page, and select the "upgrade" option for a Portfolio, Performance, or Business plan.
