Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing desktop fonts, part of Up and Running with Typekit.
- Once you've synced fonts to your desktop…you may occasionally need to remove a couple of them.…Typekit makes it easy to see which fonts you've synced…and make any necessary changes to the list.…So I've got Typekit open right now…and I'm going to add and sync…another font to my desktop real quick.…I really like this Lust Script…and maybe I'm looking at it as an alternative…to active display as well.…So all I have to do is use the fonts…and then choose which one I want to use and sync it.…Now once that's done the font is now available…for me to use inside any application I want.…
Now if I jump back into Illustrator…and let's say I click on this heading…"Up & Running with Typekit"…if I grab the pulldown menu for my fonts…and start scrolling through them…you can see that Lust Script is available.…You'll also notice that instead of the traditional…true type or open type icon…it has a Typekit icon to indicate…that this font has been synced from Typekit.…So if I click on this…and save my file…I now have a really groovy title done in Lust Script.…
