Extensis Announces Plug-ins for Adobe InDesign and Illustrator CS3


PORTLAND, Ore.–(extensis.com)– 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.
