Squarespace has many fonts that look like adobe fonts. I have browsed SS fonts and compared them to ones on this page. If you find you still want to upload custom fonts then this should help:

Find a specific font

specific Adobe or Google Font, search for it in the Browse all fonts option.

  1. In the Home Menu, click Design, then click Fonts
  2. Under Global Text Styles, click the text type you want to change: Headings, Paragraphs, Buttons, or Miscellaneous.
  3. Click Family.
  4. Click Browse All Fonts.
  5. Scroll to browse the available fonts, or enter the font name in the Search fonts field at the top of the panel.
  6. Click Save to apply your changes

Thank you for these links. I do need to use a specific Adobe font however, because we do want some of the headings to exactly match the branding we've created for this client. I've actually checked out this post from Kate Scott and if you see under her Adobe Typekit instructions, she says to copy and paste the Adobe project ID to the External API Keys labeled "Adobe" under advanced settings in SS. This API Key doesn't seem to exist anymore. 

 

So you can see I've hit a wall here. Have you uploaded an Adobe font using these guides? I'd love to know how you got around this wall concerning the External API Key. Thank you!

Custom Adobe Fonts are still supported on Squarespace 7.0 sites, but as you haven't provided a link to the site you're discussing, I'll assume it is a Squarespace 7.1 site.

Squarespace 7.1 doesn't yet have native support for custom Adobe Fonts so you'll need to add them manually using code, as described in my guide Adding Custom Fonts to Squarespace.

I just wanted to follow up on this thread in case anyone was looking to figure out how to use Adobe Typekit fonts in SS 7.1. I found a tutorial that worked for me! https://www.squarebase.co/blog/how-to-add-custom-fonts-to-squarespace-71-including-adobe-typekit-fonts 

 

Just scroll to the bottom of the post and they explain how to upload adobe typekit fonts there.
