The Suitcase Fusion Core is the background application that keeps your fonts active, communicates with the auto-activation plug-ins and more.
In Suitcase Fusion 2 and earlier versions, the preferences for the Core were contained within the Mac OS X system preferences or the Windows Control Panel.
With the release of Suitcase Fusion 3, these Core preferences were moved into the Suitcase Fusion application preferences.
To open the core preferences, launch Suitcase Fusion 3 and choose:
- Suitcase Fusion 3 > Preferences (Mac OS X)
- Tools > Preferences (Windows)

Join us next week as Thomas Phinney, our Senior Font Product Manager, presents an insightful look into the world of font license compliance. He’ll share why font license compliance is of critical importance to any organization using even a few fonts and up to thousands in some cases.
Thomas has collected a number of real-life examples of companies who didn’t comply with font licensing, and the consequences that they faced. Thomas will guide you through options available to help you control your own font licensing and avoid similar situations.

OK that might be a bit extreme, but when I came across this site I was very impressed that anyone had given thought to something that a lot of people just take for granted: Typography For Lawyers. I like that Matthew Butterick is doing what he can as a lawyer to raise the level of typography knowledge (and by extension improve the aesthetic) which will make legal documents a bit easier to read. For most people, trying to sort out all the legalese in a document is hard enough but then to puzzle around a bad font choice too makes it even more difficult. I wonder how many deals have gone bad or fallen through altogether because all those pages of poor type and boilerplate were just too overwhelming.
Another nice thing about this site is that it explains typography to people as though they have never heard of it before and have no idea what it means. If you are a design person or even a plain old font nerd then for you this is desperately boring. However, if you know someone who needs a good place to start after asking “What do you mean by ‘different font’ exactly?”, this is a great place to start the uninitiated on a path to Type Enlightenment. As a Tech Support person I really like this approach because he starts at zero, which everybody does at the beginning, and he is working it out himself and sharing that knowledge with you. I am looking forward to how this site develops.
What are you using now to educate people on fonts and type?
