Bug fixes

  • (Windows) Fixed an issue where some corrupt fonts were not identified as corrupt. [FS-5470]

Known issue
  • Using a question mark, single quote, double quote, asterisk, or percent sign in a Vault path or in any folder or file name in a temporary font’s path can cause issues with Suitcase Fusion. These characters have special meaning for Suitcase Fusion’s database and search engine. While we try to accommodate for them, in some cases they can cause problems, so we recommend avoiding these characters. [FS-5633]

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.
