NEWS – Anyone who has used the latest Adobe Creative Cloud versions of InDesign or Illustrator has probably noticed that font selection is a little unwieldy. I use InDesign every day and whenever I’m looking for a specific sort of typeface to use, like a nice handwritten font, I find myself squinting at the tiny font sample next to the name. But fear not, Adobe has heard your cries!
In the upcoming version of InDesign and Illustrator, a vastly improved type menu will allow for customized sample display text and integrated access to the 9,000 TypeKit fonts that are included with a Creative Cloud subscription. You will be able to browse this font library in the app and quickly preview your chosen text in any font of your choice.
Check out the video on Adobe’s blog for a closer look. I’m very much looking forward to this small but potent improvement!
