The award protects an existing feature in the company's font management products, Suitcase and Font Reserve.

Extensis vice president of font solutions Brian Berson said: "This latest patent issued to Extensis further validates our technology vision and innovation.

"Extensis will continue to address the challenges of digital asset and font management at the workgroup level while delivering powerful and affordable solutions to our customers.”

The company is now a division of Celartem Technology.
