How to Install Font Only In Photoshop CC


This is a quick guide to install font only for Photoshop CC (not windows).

I was updating one of my theme Chelonian and I copy-paste CSS from another theme. Chelonian is using Dashicons and the other theme is using Genericons. So I accidentally use genericons CSS in my style.css instead of using dashicons for calendar icon.

/* WRONG */
.widget_recent_entries .post-date:before{
    content: '\f307';
    margin-right: 5px;
    font-family: "genericons";
    vertical-align: top;
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

/* RIGHT */
.widget_recent_entries .post-date:before{
    content: "\f145";
    margin-right: 5px;
    font-family: "dashicons";
    vertical-align: top;
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

And I didn’t realize this until I check using my phone and I see this:


It’s looks fine in my laptop because I recently install Genericons, Dashicons, and FontAwesome in my Windows 10 Operating System. So I didn’t realize this error in my CSS.

So I think it’s best to install custom font only for Photoshop CC if you only use if for web and Photoshop.

How to Install Font only for Photoshop CC

It’s very easy.

#1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe
(not in “Program Files (x86)” folder)

#2. Create Fonts folder there.
(If it’s not already there)

#3. Just Copy and Paste your fonts there.
You can organize your font in folders too.

    hello thanks for the great input… by the way how about illustrator cc animate cc, indesign cc and incopy cc as well ?
    will copying my favorite fonts into the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts will work with illustrator, animate, indesign, and incopy???
    I would appreciate any input… I have a large free font collection and a lousy computer with very limited memory so i cannot install fonts into win 10 system directly.
