PORTLAND, Ore. – May 10, 2016 –Today, Extensis® released Suitcase Fusion® 7, the professional font manager that helps designers store, maintain, manage and search their font collections effortlessly and efficiently.
Today’s release of Suitcase Fusion 7 takes font collections to the cloud via TypeSync™, a secure cloud-based font repository that enables designers to synchronize their font collection on any machine. For designers who are on the move or working off two machines, Suitcase Fusion 7 has their entire collection at the ready.
Suitcase Fusion 7 also extends reliable font management to motion graphics artists with the industry’s first font plug-in for Adobe® After Effects®. Fonts play an integral role in motion design, and until today, it has been a laborious process to search for and activate fonts. Suitcase Fusion’s Font auto-activation ensures that fonts will always be immediately accessible directly within After Effects.
This new feature joins other auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe Creative Cloud® 2015 applications – Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe InDesign®, Adobe Illustrator®, Adobe InCopy® – and QuarkXPress®.
“The number one thing motion and graphic designers say they want more of is time to create,” said Clint Daeuble, Product Owner of Font Services at Extensis. “As typography’s imprint on the modern business world continues to grow, tools like Suitcase Fusion 7 will give designers back the time chasing down missing fonts takes away. With the average font collection size hovering at around 4,500 typefaces, that means a whole lot of time.”
