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.
