With the SkyFonts app installed on your Windows or Mac OSX system, you simply browse your favorite font websites to find the perfect font, then click the Install button on the site. SkyFonts will download and activate your fonts in seconds.
SkyFonts works with your existing account on Fonts.com, MyFonts, Linotype, or Membership. You do not need an account for SkyFonts, itself.
Your existing account should be automatically linked when you install SkyFonts, and you can manually link additional accounts any time in the Accounts section of the application.
As many as you like… the SkyFonts app is completely free. Fonts installed through the SkyFonts app have workstation limitations set by the font providers. Check out the license details on their website to see on how many workstations each font can be installed.
When you install a free or purchased font, the SkyFonts app will download, activate, and place the font in the default fonts folder on your computer. Trial and subscription fonts are kept hidden and protected elsewhere on your hard drive, and are removed at the end of the trial or subscription period.
You will need an Internet connection to install fonts through the SkyFonts app. However, once a trial or subscription font has been installed, it will remain on your system until the end of the usage period, even during times that you do not have an Internet connection. Purchased fonts will always be available.
First you may want to clear the font caches of the program you are having a problem with. If you do not know how or have a program that can assist you, you can try Monotype’s FontExplorer X® Pro font management solution, or another font manager.
If you are using a service that allows the manual download of a font, try downloading and installing it manually after removing it through the SkyFonts app. If the problem continues, try using the font in a different program.
If this does not work, or the font a trial or subscription font, please send us a support request.
To make sure SkyFonts is functioning properly, please try to install a free font from one of the font provider sites: any of the Google Fonts should work for this test. If this does not work, please send a support request.
For Mac users: You will see the SkyFonts icon in the menu bar, at the upper-right of your screen. For Windows users: The SkyFonts icon will be located in the taskbar, at the bottom-right of your screen.
We support Windows version 7 and later. On Mac, we support OSX version 10.7 and later.
