I Can't Find The Myriad Pro Sub Fonts On My Mac!!!

Hi, All... apparently the new default for your Mac does not include all the Myriad Pro sub fonts you need to complete the small type for the LEAFE logo. You know we won’t leave you high and dry so here's how you can get them for free through your Creative Cloud account... super easy... ENJOY! :)

FROM YOUR DESKTOP, LOOK UP AT THE TOP MENU BAR AND CLICK ON THE ADOBE CC ICON.  IF YOU INSTALLED THE ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD APP YOU SHOULD SEE IT.  IF NOT, INSTALL THE ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD APP FROM HERE.
