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.
