Free plug-ins for Extensis’ font management product line enable
auto-activation of fonts within Adobe InDesign and Illustrator CS3.
PORTLAND, Ore. – March 29, 2007 – Extensis, a division of Celartem,
Inc., today announced free plug-ins to provide the world’s most
advanced font activation and deactivation for Adobe InDesign and
Illustrator CS3 documents. The plug-ins ensure that any time users
open an InDesign or Illustrator project, the exact fonts are
automatically and accurately activated or deactivated.
The free plug-ins will be available for download from the Extensis
website in the coming months and support Suitcase Fusion, Suitcase
for Windows, Suitcase Server and Font Reserve Server. The new
plug-ins will require Adobe InDesign and/or Illustrator CS3.
“Extensis knows how important the release of Adobe’s InDesign and
Illustrator CS3 will be to the creative professional market,” said
Martin Stein, Vice President of Corporate Solutions for Extensis.
“Our goal is to support the leading layout and design solutions that
our customers utilize on a daily basis and as such, have made the
availability of the auto-activation plug-ins for InDesign and
Illustrator CS3 a priority.”
The ability to automatically activate and deactivate fonts is
possible through the power of the Extensis’ patent-pending Font Sense
technology. Font Sense ensures a smooth workflow by identifying,
locating, and activating the exact fonts used in a document. Because
of this one-of-a-kind technology, Extensis font managers no longer
simply identify fonts by name; they create unique identifiers that
guarantee font fidelity. This technology enables Extensis to offer
the only font managers that can successfully manage multiple fonts
with the same name to ensure that an application can activate the
exact version of a font. Font Sense is available in Suitcase Fusion
and Font Reserve and allows for true font identification in Adobe
InDesign and Illustrator documents.
