Extensis Releases Updates for Suitcase Fusion 5 and Universal Type Client 4; Offer Direct Integration with Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Fonts
PORTLAND, Ore. — November 19, 2013 — Today Extensis announced updates for Suitcase Fusion™ 5 and Universal Type Client 4, offering Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers access to Typekit desktop fonts directly in the font management workflow. With a few clicks of a mouse, creative professionals can quickly search, locate, tag, preview and select Typekit desktop fonts from Extensis’ professional font management solutions.
“As creative teams sift through hundreds, if not thousands, of fonts in their design work, Extensis’ mission is to create font management command centers that bring everything they want into one place,” said Chris Meyer, Sr. Product Manager for Font Solutions. “These updates further this commitment, offering Creative Cloud subscribers access to their desktop fonts from these font hubs.”
Within both Suitcase Fusion 5 and Universal Type Client 4, Adobe Creative Cloud users can:
- Display Typekit desktop fonts through a library of their own
- Tag Keywords and Favorites to their Typekit font library
- Leverage the powerful toolsets found in Extensis’ font management solutions, including font previews, search, QuickMatch for similar font searches, and QuickComp to quickly build font usage samples.
Extensis Font Panels are also added by Suitcase Fusion 5 to the Adobe Creative Cloud applications that include the new Typekit desktop font library in Adobe InDesign®, Photoshop®, Illustrator® and InCopy®. This allows users to view WYSIWYG previews of their Typekit desktop fonts, and quickly apply them to text layers in documents.
In addition to integration with Adobe Creative Cloud desktop fonts, the updates for Suitcase Fusion 5 and Universal Type Client 4 offer compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
