In the Fonts tab you can manage different font settings in your document, such as missing fonts or embedded fonts.

Missing fonts

To replace a missing font in a document, choose the Replace… button next to any missing font you want to replace. From here, you’ll need to select a replacement font family and weight. When you’ve made your selection, choose Replace to finish. Text layers that use the missing fonts will now show your chosen replacement font instead.

Embedded fonts

Important: In order to embed any font, you must confirm that you have a valid license for it — and the rights to distribute that font to others. Our terms of service prohibit embedding fonts without a valid and appropriate license.

How to embed a font

To embed a font, choose File > Document Settings… from the menu bar and head to the Fonts tab. You’ll see a list of all non-system fonts in your document. Click on the drop-down menu next to a font and choose Embed in Document.

Any time you embed a font, we’ll ask you to confirm that you agree to our terms and conditions, as well as confirming you have the relevant license and rights to distribute that font.

How to un-embed a font

Open your document with an embedded font and choose File > Document Settings… from the menu bar and head to the Fonts tab. Select the drop-down menu next to the name of the font you wish to un-embed and choose Not embedded.

Fonts will un-embed automatically if you delete the text layers that use them from your document. You will also need to un-embed and re-embed fonts that have received updates, as we cannot detect updates automatically.

Embedding fonts from Libraries

You can embed fonts in Libraries like any regular document so everyone that uses that Library will be able to access those fonts. If you use a Symbol or style from a Library with embedded fonts, you’ll need to embed them manually by following the steps above.

If you remove Library Symbols and Text Styles with embedded fonts from a document you’re working on, the fonts they use will un-embed automatically.
