Extensis Ships Suitcase (TM) for Windows (R) Professional Font Management for Workgroups and Single-Users
|PORTLAND, Ore. – February 22, 2007 – Extensis, a division of Celartem, Inc., today shipped Suitcase for Windows: Professional Font Management for both workgroups and single-users running Windows Vista, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Answering the growing need for professional Windows-based font management, Extensis has updated its award-winning Suitcase product adding both new functionality and compatibility for Windows Vista.
“Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system create a platform for next generation user experiences, and we are excited to see the industry come together like never before around these products,” said Rob Bernard, general manager of the Worldwide ISV Group at Microsoft. “By working closely with industry partners such as Extensis, we are able to give creative professionals worldwide an experience that is easier, safer, and more productive whether they are at work or on the go.”
Suitcase for Windows is the only font manager for Windows with Font Sense™-powered auto-activation plug-ins for key professional layout and illustration applications including Adobe InDesign CS2, Illustrator CS2 and QuarkXPress 7. Font Sense is a proprietary Extensis technology that allows Suitcase to match and automatically activate the exact versions of fonts used in a document, including placed EPS or PDF file fonts.
As a client for Suitcase Server X1, Suitcase for Windows ensures consistent, reliable font use among all members of the creative workgroup. Suitcase Server supports both the Windows and Macintosh Suitcase clients, making it an ideal font management solution for both Windows and cross-platform workgroups.
“Every font on a creative professional’s system is yet another piece of software that interacts directly with their design applications and the Windows operating system. Having too many fonts activated leads to system instability, speed and performance issues,” said Halstead York, Extensis product marketing manager. “Whether working alone or in a workgroup environment these individuals are increasingly using the Windows platform and realizing that professional-level font management has become a necessity.”
