Extensis Announces Mac OS X 10.5 Optimization Update for Suitcase Fusion
Update for Extensis Suitcase Fusion automatically adjusts system settings
for professional font management on Leopard.
PORTLAND, Ore. – November 29, 2007 – Extensis, a division of Celartem,
Inc., today announced Suitcase Fusion 12.1.7, a free update to its
single-user font management application. Although previously compatible
with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, this update will ensure that important system
settings are automatically adjusted rather than requiring the user to
complete the changes manually. Additionally, the update ensures that
Leopard’s new system fonts can be managed via Suitcase Fusion’s Manage
System Fonts feature.
Since the launch of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Suitcase Fusion and Font Reserve
Server have maintained Mac OS X 10.5 compatibility. A compatibility update
for Suitcase Server X1 will be forthcoming, as will updates for the
Portfolio 8.5 product line.
In addition to this update for Leopard optimization, all Extensis font
management products also include auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe
Illustrator and InDesign CS3. These plug-ins are crucial for anyone using
Creative Suite 3 on Leopard, as Adobe Creative Suite 2 applications were
not designed for Leopard. For more information, download the Adobe Leopard
support pdf: (http://www.adobe.com/support/products/pdfs/leopardsupport.pdf)
“Extensis knows how important it is for our users to be able to work
seamlessly within the operating system of their choice,” said Cindy
Valladares, Product Marketing Manager at Extensis. “Our goal is to ensure
that our font management products are both optimized for the new Mac OS and
offer the auto-activation plug-ins users need for the latest creative
applications, which is what a professional font management system should
