Extensis Releases Suitcase Fusion 6; Apple OS X Yosemite and Adobe Creative Cloud Compatible; Adds Support for Dropbox and Google Drive

New font manager designed to tightly fit into modern design workflows; archives font collections via cloud-based services

Extensis® today released Suitcase Fusion® 6, the professional-grade font manager which integrates fonts directly into the creative workflow and allows designers to get the most out of their font collections by organizing them into a single, searchable location.

Touting compatibility with last week’s release of Apple® OS X® Yosemite, and support for the industry’s most popular design applications and cloud-based archiving, Suitcase Fusion 6 provides instant access to the font tools designers need in all the places they need them.

    Highlights in Suitcase Fusion 6:
    • Apple® OS X® Yosemite Compatible: Apple just released Apple® OS X® Yosemite, and Suitcase Fusion 6 is ready for designers. Suitcase Fusion users are proven early adopters of technology. They will jump to the next OS ahead of others, and Suitcase Fusion 6 is fully compatible when they do.
    • Optimized for Modern Workflows: Suitcase Fusion 6 is designed to tightly fit into the design workflow. Optimized for Adobe® Creative Cloud® 2014 applications and high-resolution retina-crisp font previews, this font manager is elegant, fresh and familiar.
    • Fast & Reliable Activation: Suitcase Fusion 6 auto-activates fonts using plug-ins and panels for Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 applications, including Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe InDesign® and Adobe Illustrator®, as well and QuarkXPress®.
    • Cloud-based Archive & Restore for Dropbox™, Google® Drive™, and more: Designers never turn off their creativity. They work whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Now all font users will be able to keep their home and work font collections in sync using their Dropbox or Google Drive accounts. Suitcase Fusion 6 makes it easy to transfer collections between multiple workspaces with cloud-based archives & restore.
    • Enhanced Fontspiration®: Built from day one to put fonts on center stage, today Suitcase Fusion 6 adds even more creative inspiration with Fontspiration. The new Fontspiration panel delivers fresh typographic samples–directly into Suitcase Fusion interface. Fontspiration joins QuickComp as another tool for juicing creative inspiration

Jim Kidwell, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Extensis noted: “Designers love fonts. In fact, the average font collection size is 4,512. And we’ve seen collections top 230,000!”

Kidwell continued: “With large font collections comes problems finding, sorting and using them. Suitcase Fusion 6 provides a central hub which integrates into modern workflows, enabling designers to focus on design versus losing time trying to find what they need.”
