I know some of you are wondering what’s up with fonts for CS6. The font set shipping with CS6 closely resembles the set that shipped with CS5. However, the following new families will ship with CS6.
• Adobe Devanagari (4 fonts)
• Adobe Naskh (1 font)
• Myriad Arabic (4 fonts)
• Myriad Hebrew (4 fonts)
These new families were added to support the Middle Eastern version of CS6 and are featured in the sample below.
To get the complete list of fonts installed with each CS6 application and included on the product DVDs, refer to Font related documentation for Creative Suite 6.
The CS6 installer will install fonts in the same manner that the CS5 installer did. The CS6 installer will install fonts into a default system font directory. Many of these fonts are newer versions of fonts installed by Creative Suite 5.5. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory. The default system font directory is:
• Apple Macintosh: /Library/Fonts
The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:
• Apple Macintosh: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/SavedFonts/current
• Windows: \Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\SavedFonts\current
