The recently released Suitcase Fusion 8 doesn’t turn font management on its ear like version 5, 6 and 7 did—but it does greatly improve the experience for designers in lots of little ways.

Extensis completely revamped the user interface of Suitcase
Fusion. Extensis added a more contextual pop-up right at the font location in the window. The pop-up allows you to view info about the font, a preview of the font, available glyphs and QuickMatch info which searches your entire library of fonts for similar looking fonts.
Along with the typical font preview styles such as quick type, waterfall and full alphabet, Fusion now offers a tile view to quickly find the font you’re looking for.
Extensis also added the ability to view temporary fonts in their own library, making them easy to find quickly.
Auto-activation plug-ins have been updated for the latest versions of Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects, as well as Quark XPress. All seem to activate smoothly for me. In fact the entire application seems to work faster than ever before.
The previously mentioned QuickMatch feature is still awesome, allowing you to find similar looking fonts with a simple click.
Suitcase Fusion allows for two installations for a single user. Fusion works not only with the fonts installed on your
PC/Mac, but Adobe’s TypeKit fonts and Google Fonts are also supported.
Auto–checking for font corruption virtually removes the need for FontDoctor, but Extensis includes the app anyway.
Speaking of included apps, you also get Suitcase for iOS—allowing you to use TrueType and TrueType-based OpenType fonts on your iPhone and iPad. Perfect for customizing your Keynote presentation!
Extensis has released an update that includes the following fixes:
- Select an entire font family by clicking the family name.
- Activate an entire font family with single-click activation icons.
- Reveal fonts added in place in the Finder by right-clicking or Ctrl-clicking on a font name.
- Preview window “type ahead” feature now allows you to start typing the first few letters of a font name to jump to that font in the preview window.

another font manager, please watch the recent
