Extensis® Releases New Suitcase Fusion™ 3 with Adobe® CS5 Integration and Web Font Management Capabilities

PORTLAND, Ore., August 3, 2010 – Extensis, a division of Celartem Inc., today announced the immediate availability of Suitcase Fusion™ 3, the newest version of the professional-grade font manager for Macintosh® and Windows® operating systems.Designers are inherently multi-disciplined and often need to articulate their designs uniformly across multiple publishing media – both printed and the Web. Suitcase Fusion enables designers to browse, preview, select and manage fonts wherever they may be required – from the desktop to the web.

Features of Suitcase Fusion 3 include:

  • Seamless integration with Adobe® InDesign® and Illustrator® CS5 via font auto-activation plug-ins
  • Web font selection and management through the Extensis WebINK® font rental service
  • Web Preview mode allows users to see effects of using desktop and WebINK fonts on any web site.
  • Suggests ‘more fonts like this’ using QuickMatch technology to locate similar fonts
  • Application Sets that immediately activate selected fonts when an application launches
  • Font Snapshots for quickly creating PNG font previews
  • Updated and modernized user interface
  • Localization into French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese
  • Delivers a stable environment by managing system fonts, repairing corrupt fonts and integrated font cache cleaning

WebINK Enabled

Suitcase Fusion 3 provides access to high quality web fonts through an integrated connection to the cloud-based web font rental service, WebINK (www.webink.com). Through a new Web Preview feature, users can preview how selected fonts will behave online before ever writing a single line of CSS. And all of this is accomplished from a single stable location, Suitcase Fusion 3.

“Enabling WebINK in Suitcase Fusion 3 is a logical step toward complete font control across print and web. The extension of desktop font management to the web closes the loop on many of the cross-media challenges – and creative sacrifices – that modern designers face,” said Thomas Phinney, Senior Product Manager for Font Solutions.

To get users up and running with web fonts, users who register Suitcase Fusion 3 by Dec 31, 2010 will receive one FREE year of WebINK web font service. For details about the free WebINK promotion see cde.extensis.com/FreeWebINK2010.

Suitcase Fusion 3 is available immediately at a SRP of $99.95US for full product; $49.95 US for upgrades from previous versions. Product is available through distribution with Ingram Micro (US) and Synnex (Canada), through North American resellers and retailers (CDW, J&R), and direct from the Extensis website (cde.extensis.com).

Extensis Fusion 3 is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
