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:
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.
