18/50 – Typekit Font Matching in Photoshop CC

If you work with type in Photoshop, then chances are that at some point in your career, you’ve tried to open a document that was handed off to you, only to find that you didn’t have the same fonts installed as the creator of the document. Let’s take a look at how Photoshop CC has improved this workflow.
In previous versions of Photoshop, when opening a document that utilized fonts that are not installed on the current system, Photoshop notified you that there were missing fonts, but that was all. Now, when you open a document and there are missing fonts, Photoshop will look for an exact match using Typekit. If it finds a match, it asks you if you want to replace it. If it doesn’t find a match, Typekit will display your default font as well as other fonts that are being used in the document so that you can choose an acceptable replacement.

Note, for this to work, TypeKit “Font Sync” must be turned on (CC desktop App > Preferences > Fonts > Typekit = On)
