Extensis (http://www.extensis.com) says Suitcase Fusion 4, the newest version of the professional-grade font manager for Mac and Windows operating systems, is now available for purchase or upgrade. The upgrade brings font handling tools directly into the creative workflow, allowing designers to access them where and when they are needed, says Chris Meyer, senior product manager, Font Solutions.
A key new feature in Suitcase Fusion 4 includes Extensis Font Panels. The new Extensis Font Panels extend font browsing and control directly into Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop applications. Designers can preview, organize and activate fonts from their font collection directly from Adobe applications, thereby eliminating the endless search for the right font.
Suitcase Fusion 4 is also the only professional desktop manager that covers all areas of the creative workflow, including the web, says Meyer. The Font Panel for Adobe Photoshop includes web fonts from WebINK and Google Web Fonts. Designers are able to preview web fonts using any text, and integrate them into Photoshop site mockups for free. The Google Web Font connection provides hundreds of free, open source fonts for use in any project.
Suitcase Fusion 4 costs US$99.95 Upgrades from previous versions are $49.95.
