I’m happy to announce that today we launched a major revision to our single-user Windows font manager. Suitcase Fusion 2 is a very large leap forward in font management on Windows, and now has feature parity with its Macintosh counterpart.
“This is a truly huge leap in font management functionality, architecture, and user experience for Windows users,” said Thomas Phinney, Senior Product Manager Font Solutions at Extensis. “Suitcase Fusion 2 is the most modern, stable and reliable font manager available.”
Some of the new features in the Windows version of Suitcase Fusion 2 include:
- Unparalleled font previewing
- Highly configurable plug-in based auto-activation for the latest creative professional applications
- Modern technology
- Portable built-in font vault
- Font searching, tagging and classification options
- System font management
Suitcase Fusion 2 is based on Universal Type Server, which allow users to search, activate and browse fonts much faster than before. “To my delight, Fusion 2 has done a remarkable job in stability, speed and usability,” said James Dempsey, Macworld magazine.
This version includes plug-in based auto-activation for the latest professional creative applications: Adobe Illustrator® and InDesign® CS2, CS3 and CS4, as well as QuarkXPress® 7 and 8. The plug-ins utilize Font Sense technology to ensure that the right fonts are chosen for auto-activation.
The Windows version of Suitcase Fusion 2 is available immediately at an estimated retail price of US $99.95. Upgrade pricing for Suitcase for Windows versions 9 and 11, as well as for standalone Font Reserve 2.6 is available at an estimated retail price of US $49.98.
