Info on the fonts that ship with CS5

If you’ve ever wondered about prosaic but potentially important questions like

  • What fonts are installed by the basic font set
  • What additional fonts will be installed by the supplemental set
  • What font set(s) each product will install
  • What font set(s) each product will include on the product DVD

then check out this post from Nicole Minoza in Adobe’s Type group.

    Joh, do you have any info on Hypatia Sans Italic.
    Those of us who purchased and registered CS3 were supposed to be able to purchase Hypatia Sans italic at a discounted price (since they were not ready yet), but 3 years later, I’ve not received any news about it!

    Please don’t tell me CS5 uninstalls fonts that came with previous versions of Creative Suite. I was really mad that CS4 removed Bickham Script Pro and other typefaces from my computer without even so much as a notification. Really mad!

    Even better:
    Why are fonts so &#&(# expensive?

    @Brian Spence
    CS5 will only uninstall fonts for which it has newer versions to install. If the version of a given font installed by CS4 is older than the version of the same font to be installed by CS5, the installer will replace the installed font by the newer version, and put the older version in a folder on the desktop.

    One of the most consistently annoying things about Adobe Creative Suite applications is that they automatically install a slew of fonts, many of which I am not interested in having loaded on my system
    The result is slowed down system start-up and cluttered font menus in my apps.
    While I’ve figured out how to get rid of the ones which are not required by the apps, each time I install a new Adobe app or an update to one I have already, all the fonts I removed are just reinstalled onto my system.
    Surely programming some sort of option into your installation and/or update routines which gave the user an option to not install this stuff would not be beyond the capabilities of the geniuses at Adobe. PLEASE !!!

    I just don’t get it. Why on earth would Adobe *LITTER* a computer with fonts that impact *OTHER* applications on a user’s computer? Guys, it’s really *VERY* simple. Put all Adobe fonts where they *BELONG*:

    /Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/Fonts/

    Enough of this “one code source across platforms”…get with the program and develop *PROPERLY* for the different platforms. Geezz!!!!

    Get with the program, Adobe!

    Years ago, I purchased Bickham Script, the entire font, including Swash caps, Alternates, etc., everything. I can’t install it in Win 8 (pfb) and I tried buying a program to convert it to OpenType but because it is a Multiple Master, most programs won’t convert it. Because it is my favourite script I gave up and bought it again; only to find out that it only contains the standard version. I have spent thousands of dollars on Adobe fonts $ software but I don’t get the feeling that Adobe cares for its customers. I use Bickham on a big project dealing with Christian theology and I’m getting the feeling that the last two people I spoke to would have simply converted my postscript fonts to Open Type if I hadn’t mentioned Christ. I would have gladly paid $100 to Adobe just to update my Bickham fonts. I use alt characters and Swash Caps a lot as this is a work of love but the old Adobe that had an office in the same building where my studio was (carpet factory) seems very different now compared to then. We need to get the word out, Christian bloggers, church web sites and anyone who is sick of this hatred. When people worry about getting murdered for making a cartoon about Muhammad but it’s open season on Christianity. If I have to start all over, I don’t think it’s fair since I have been a promoter of Adobe products. I’m just sick about it.
    Sincerely,
    Peter
