Suitcase Fusion for CS3

Extensis has posted a free, downloadable plug-in for Suitcase Fusion that provides compatibility with Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3) documents, allowing automatic and purportedly accurate font activation (Illustrator plug-in only) and deactivation when opening Illustrator CS3 documents. The plug-in uses cross-platform technolgy to ensure fonts are carried properly from Windows systems to Macs and back again. [corrected]

"Font Management is a critical need for creative professionals using Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe InDesign CS3," said Will Eisley, director of product management, Illustration and Layout Products at Adobe. "We applaud Extensis for being the first to bring this benefit to both our customers through font management plug-ins for Creative Suite 3 that enables consistent and predictable font auto-activation."

The free plug-in and update are available now for download from the Extensis website.

Currently, the plug-in and update are English language only. Extensis will release French, German and Japanese downloads soon after Adobe Creative Suite 3 is available in these languages. Extensis says it will release additional free plug-ins for other products in its font management family for both Illustrator CS3 and InDesign CS3 software in the near future.

    Wheres X1 again....

    Glad to see they are working hard on the Fusion, to bad they are still lagging behind on the old versions such as X1 which have a much larger client base. Sounds like they are still trying to get people to pay for the overly hyped Fusion which works just as poorly as X1... Wish there was a viable alternative.

    viable alternative is

    Linotype FontExporer X - The best.

    Enough said.

    Font Manager Review

    Here's a review of font managers.

    FontExplorer is pretty, but professionals use Suitcase.

    Did you actually read the article you linked? I agree, FontExplorer sucks, but Extensis and Suitcase suck more. Maybe they've changed their ways, but they lost me with their borg like zeal of information gathering, account log-in and such just to download a friggin maintenance update.

    I forgot to comment that I gave up on Suitcase long ago with their shoddy stability that's mentioned in the article.
