    I'm going through the process of clearing out fonts on the Mac. There's a bunch of fonts showing in my Adobe suite of applications that I want to delete but I cannot find them anywhere!

    Any ideas? They aren't appearing in Font Book and I can't find them in any of the font folders in Finder. I even tried searching the font in spotlight.

    They are only showing in Adobe applications like Photoshop and Illustrator I believe, they don't show in Textedit & iWeb etc.

    Is is possible that the font names are only listed in Adobe, but the fonts are not actually installed? If they don't show up in Font Book, it's very likely they're not installed.
