There’s been a change in the stable of fonts installed with Adobe Creative Cloud applications, starting with CC 2014.
This explains why new clients don’t have Minion Pro Bold, or Myriad Pro Semibold. Now, many of the old standard fonts, which had been installed by Creative Suite and Creative Cloud applications in the past, are only available via TypeKit (or direct purchase) for those starting fresh with CC 2014. I’d been wondering what was going on—now I know. At least the installation of newer versions of CC apps doesn’t wipe out fonts you already have.
This limits what I can do when creating templates for some clients who are using CC2014—I’d always been able to count on clients having a base set of fonts, and now I can’t, because some are working in environments that don’t allow Web access or downloads, and thus will have no access to TypeKit.
Trebuchet, here I come.
