    Adobe to stop supporting Type 1 fonts

    Well, then I owe you my thanks because both those things drove me mad in tables! This has been really helpful for me, both of your comments have made me rethink how I feel about the level of the monthly cost. I still feel grumpy about he typefaces though. ;)

    Adobe to stop supporting Type 1 fonts

    @hankscorpio our messages crossed. It's really good to hear you're battling from the inside. I'm sure a monster machine like Adobe has many plates to juggle and people to please.

    Adobe to stop supporting Type 1 fonts

    Hello collective mind I have been ignoring the Adobe type 1 warning until today when I had a moment to read it. Is it me or are they just using it as a tool to make everyone use their licensed fonts, so that if you stop using Adobe products you also lose you entire font library, making it far...
