Extensis today released free plug-ins for Suitcase Fusion that deliver font activation and deactivation for Adobe Creative Suite 3 documents.

The company moved quickly so it could claim to be the first font management provider to release tested plug-ins for this purpose.

The Suitcase Fusion plug-in ensures that any time users open an Adobe Illustrator CS3 project the exact fonts are automatically and accurately activated or deactivated.
Suitcase Fusion uses Extensis’ patented Font Sense auto-activation technology, which lets users work "fluently with fonts in CS applications and eliminate potential font problems before workflow disruption can occur," the company said.

Font Sense enables true font identification in Illustrator, InDesign and QuarkXPress documents.
“The Suitcase Fusion plug-in and Suitcase for Windows update have been designed for and tested on Creative Suite 3, providing the most reliable font management auto-activation available,” said Davin Kluttz, Extensis product manager. “Extensis will continue to deliver additional CS3 plug-ins to our users as soon as they are completed- and free of charge- so that they can continue working in Creative Suite 3 without interruption.”
The free plug-in is available now for download from Extensis.
