V21.2.1

Suitcase Fusion Compatible With Adobe Creative Cloud Update For 2021

We want to make sure you have everything you need to create your best work. This latest update to Suitcase Fusion makes our font manager compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud updates for 2021. With Suitcase Fusion, your fonts will auto-activate as soon as you open the newest versions of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, or After Effects.

macOS 11 Big Sur

macOS 11 is the upcoming release of macOS. The new version of Suitcase Fusion supports macOS 11 (preview), including support for Apple’s new ARM processor. All of this comes together to give you a seamless font management experience throughout your day.

V21.1.0

The Return of List View Previews

We didn’t realize just how much our users loved List View previews until we removed it in Suitcase Fusion 8. You told us you missed it, we heard you, and now it’s back.

With List View previews, you can select and display font previews as you scroll through your sorted lists. Explore multiple fonts at a time without getting bogged down by excess previews. Quickly select and compare fonts, and identify the best fonts to make your design vision a reality.

Dark Mode

Mac users can now set Suitcase Fusion to Dark Mode in the Appearance Settings. Dark Mode inverts the standard display of a program, so instead of looking at a bright background with dark text, users can replace the interface with white text on a dark background. This alternate display helps to reduce ocular strain — a common problem for designers working on screens all day.

V21

Adobe Creative Cloud 2020

First things first — this version provides full support for Adobe Creative Cloud 2020 applications. Adobe announced new versions of these apps on Nov. X. For all you Adobe users, don’t worry. As you explore the new features and functionalities of Creative Cloud 2020, Suitcase Fusion offers auto-activation for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, and After Effects.

Sketch

This version of Suitcase Fusion (v21) also marks the beginning of our partnership with Sketch — the web design toolkit that empowers webpage and user interface creation. Font management challenges can slow down web designers, too, so Suitcase Fusion now makes it easy for Sketch users to do more with their fonts.

You can use the Suitcase Fusion plugin to utilize auto-activation, track fonts in documents, and collect fonts for output. You can share fonts with your team. Suitcase Fusion can also solve conflicts caused by multiple fonts with the same name and eliminate font errors when you open a document.

Affinity

Last but not least, this update enables document tracking with Affinity products — Affinity Designer, Photo, and Publisher. For these apps, Suitcase Fusion provides drag-and-drop support instead of plugins. Simply drag and drop an Affinity file on top of Suitcase Fusion to activate document fonts and enable font tracking. Once you’ve done this, any font errors will be resolved when you open a document, and you can also collect fonts for output.
