Photoshop: load & refresh from Adobe/Fonts folder

The font folder /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts is super convenient as it allows to test fonts in Illustrator without bloating the system font folder. 

Also, all the fonts listed in this folder are automatically refreshed in Illustrator if a font file is modified. For instance, when I create a font and export several iterations of its design over the same file, the documents that use this font are automatically displaying the latest version of the font.

However, Photoshop does not load the fonts located in this folder, nor does it refresh fonts from the system folder. We manually have to relaunch the app to see the refreshed fonts. So:

  1. Could Photoshop load fonts from /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts?
