Version 19.0.5

(released 14 February 2018)

In this release, we addressed a number of bugs large and small, including these:

  • On Windows, glyphs from some fonts were pasted as other fonts. [FS-4695]

  • On both Mac and Windows, copying a glyph from the Glyphs panel would change a permanently activated font to be temporarily activated. [FS-5510]

  • On Windows, dragging a selection of fonts worked sporadically. [FS-5518]

  • On OS X 10.11, the “Install All Plug-ins” function in the plug-in manager did nothing after a user entered their credentials. [FS-5537]

  • On a Mac with many fonts installed, font previews took a long time to render. [FS-5547]

  • In Photoshop CC 2018 on Mac, a Typekit dialog would display and couldn’t be closed. [FS-5573]

We also took a little time to add a few enhancements:

  • We reduced the space between font tiles and left-justified the tile view.

  • We added a method to copy fonts that were added in-place to the Font Vault; choose Edit > Copy In-Place Fonts to Vault.

  • In Suitcase Fusion for Mac, you can quickly open a set along with all of its subordinate sets; option-click the disclosure triangle for the set, or select the set and press Command-Option-Right Arrow.

Version 19.0.2

(released 6 Nov 2017)

  • Enhancement: We added the ability to select all the fonts in a family by clicking the family name in the Fonts panel.

  • Enhancement: We added activation icons to the font family header, so you can activate or deactivate an entire family with one click.

  • Enhancement: We added the ability to locate fonts that were added “in place”. Right-click on the font in the Fonts panel and choose “Reveal in Finder” or “Reveal in Explorer” from the shortcut menu.

  • Enhancement: You can scroll the Libraries panel or the Fonts panel by typing a letter on the keyboard. Select a library or set in the Libraries panel, or a font in the Fonts panel, then type a letter; the panel will scroll to reveal the first entry that starts with the typed letter.

  • Enhancement: We added a link on the Help menu that will take you to the Suitcase Fusion 8 Knowledge Base.

  • (Windows) Fixed an issue where creating a new library or set sometimes did not leave the new name in editing mode. [FS-4869]

  • Fixed an issue with TeamSync where a new user could not be created if their first name has a space. [FS-4902]
