Extensis has announced it will release a free Suitcase plug-in for Adobe Illustrator that automatically activates fonts used in Illustrator documents. The plug-in ensures that any time an Illustrator file is opened, the exact fonts used in the file are automatically activated. The announcement was made today at the MacWorld Conference & Expo, being held at the Jacob J. Javits Center in New York City.
The plug-in will be free-of-charge to registered Suitcase 10 users, and will be available in August through the Extensis web site at www.extensis.com.
"Automatic font activation is extremely useful to creative professionals," said Michael Wong, Suitcase product manager. "But whatis really important to Illustrator users is to make sure that the same font gets activated every time they open a file. By incorporating Appleis FontSync technology into this plug-in, Extensis equips Illustrator users with a font management solution that ensures the correct font will be activated every time."
