    Worked for me!

    I was hot on the trail, but this guide put me over the top.

    Adobe = super lame for making people synch for *.otf files.

    That stands for OPEN TYPE FILE, natch. This is a super small, easy, open file format that should be a breeze to work with.

    Thanks for the guide!

    wow… honestly, thank you!
    This worked great. It’s just crazy that Adobe doesn’t make it easier for you to download.

  10. Does anyone know a simple way to rename the file names using the Title property?

  11. I have noticed you don’t monetize your page, don’t waste your
    traffic, you can earn additional cash every month because you’ve got high quality content.

  12. Thank You Thank You 🙂 If you are getting 0 files copied double check and make sure that you are running cmd as admin.

  13. This worked seamlessly. Thanks!

  14. Heather Wireman

    This is AWESOME! Thank you!

  15. The syntax of the command is incorrect

  16. Any idea how to do this on a MAC?

  17. I often visit your blog and have noticed that you don’t update it
    often. More frequent updates will give your blog higher rank
    & authority in google. I know that writing articles takes a lot of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s tools which
    will shorten the time of creating an article to a couple of seconds.

  18. Thank you so much!

    I was having so many problems with synchronizing Typekit… Add to that the regular Internet cuts we have at work, it was just impossible and I was about to give up any font from Typekit and limiting myself to free fonts only… At last I can work worry-freely!
