If you work on a design team that struggles with font synchronization issues, today we are
thrilled to announce a new product that will get your design workflow humming!
Drum roll please…
Introducing Suitcase TeamSync, our new font manager that allows you to share font libraries across teams using the familiar Suitcase Fusion application as the front end.
Here’s how it works:
- Purchase a Suitcase TeamSync annual subscription ($8/month per person) for a minimum of two people
- Assign users to your account, which will include a copy of Suitcase Fusion 7 for all subscribers (updates included for free!)
- Begin sharing font libraries via the cloud – you can designate which font collections get shared with each individual designer.
Yep, it’s that easy!
Why Suitcase TeamSync?
Any design team that uses fonts is undoubtedly going to benefit from a font management system. Teams often run into issues when using different versions of the same font. Text reflows, missing fonts and even missing glyphs can derail a project, creating setbacks designers simply don’t have time for. To work together as a well-oiled machine, everyone must have access to the same, precise fonts.
Suitcase Fusion 7 Takes Fonts to the Cloud & Brings Font Management to Adobe After Effects
Attention fellow font nerds! Today we have released Suitcase Fusion 7, our professional font manager which takes the effort out of managing your fonts so you can reclaim more time for design.
For those of you who are long-time Suitcase Fusion users, the big advancement in Suitcase Fusion 7 is cloud synchronization. That’s right! With Suitcase Fusion 7, you can sync your entire font collection to the cloud using our TypeSync technology. This allows for no-touch backup and synchronization of your font collection to any machine. If you are on the move or working off two machines, Suitcase Fusion 7 has your entire collection at the ready. And you won’t have to lose sleep over worrying about ever losing your fonts- TypeSync will keep them safe and sound.
Motion Graphic Designers Rejoice!
We’re also thrilled to report we’re extending reliable font management to motion graphics artists with the industry’s first font plug-in for Adobe After Effects. Fonts play an integral role in motion design, and until today, it has been a laborious process to search for and activate fonts. Suitcase Fusion’s Font auto-activation ensures that fonts will always be immediately accessible directly within After Effects.
Adobe After Effects joins our collection of auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 applications – Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InCopy – and QuarkXPress.
