Extensis Releases Fusion 12.0.1 Update

Update fixes most recent reported problems

This week Extensis, Inc. released an update to its Suitcase Fusion font man­ag­er. This update fix­es prob­lems report­ed by users with the most recent ver­sion, v 12.0. The update moves the ver­sion num­ber to 12.0.1.

The installer, weigh­ing in at about 56 MB, fix­es the fol­low­ing major prob­lems amongst oth­ers, accord­ing to Extensis:

  • When you import a pre­vi­ous data­base that con­tains per­ma­nent­ly acti­vat­ed fonts, Suitcase Fusion now con­tin­ues to oper­ate.
  • You can now open PDF files that con­tain Font Sense data which were pre­vi­ous­ly saved from either Illustrator or InDesign in the Apple’s Preview appli­ca­tion.
  • When no longer man­ag­ing System fonts with Suitcase Fusion, Suitcase Fusion now con­tin­ues to oper­ate as expect­ed
  • System font con­flicts are now resolved prop­er­ly in QuarkXPress 6.x, Adobe Illustrator CS, CS2, and InDesign CS and CS2.
  • Certain per­ma­nent­ly active fonts in the font vault will now reac­ti­vate prop­er­ly upon restart even if there is a dupli­cate of that font in the sys­tem fold­er.

The above is not a com­plete list; thi­er full list can be found at Extensis’ web­site (which, they empha­size, lists the major issues fixed, not all issues fixed).

Download the Extensis Fusion 12.0.1 update here. Full price for a new seat is $99.95; upgrade from Suitcase X1 or Font Reserve 3 for $49.95; appli­ca­tion runs on OS X 10.3.9 and above only.
