Font management continues to be akin to voodoo and, for anyone who has a large library of fonts, a more robust solution for activation than Apple’s Font Book is a must. My personal choice happens to be Extensis Suitcase Fusion. It’s not one of those applications that I rave about and it’s not one that I use grudgingly; it’s kind of in the middle ground somewhere.
Extensis has recently issued an update to Suitcase Fusion, bringing it to version 12.1.6. The update includes:
- stability improvements including overall enhancements to font-adding and corruption checking.
- plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe InDesign CS3
- stability enhancements based directly on feedback from users
- a fix for an issue in 12.1.5 where the “show missing fonts” dialog was displayed at startup under certain conditions
The update is free for registered users. Extensis Suitcase Fusion sells for USD$99.95.
