1. What is SkyFonts?
SkyFonts is a handy, lightweight utility that runs in the background of your Mac or PC and allows you to temporarily install desktop fonts and sync them on up to five of your workstations.
When a font is installed through SkyFonts, it becomes available to all of your applications just like a typical desktop font that has been installed. When the time period is up, SkyFonts removes the font from your system.



2. How do I access the SkyFonts client?
When browsing desktop fonts, look for the “FREE TRIAL” link found on family, product, search results and other pages throughout Linotype.com. This link will download and activate the font for five minutes on up to five workstations running SkyFonts. To do this, you’ll need a Linotype.com account and to install the SkyFonts client – both of which are free.




3. In what ways can SkyFonts be used?
SkyFonts allows you to try out a new desktop font for a period of five minutes during which time the font installed for you by SkyFonts can be used just like any normally installed font and is available to all of your applications.



4. Do fonts installed through SkyFonts have the same features as regular desktop fonts?
The desktop font installed by SkyFonts will be identical with the font you will receive if you decide to acquire the license for the product. This means that OpenType fonts, for example, provide you with all the options made available to you when you purchase the identical licensed font.
