Suitcase Fusion is a powerful and feature-rich font manager designed for Mac. This program comes in handy to graphic designers who need to store font information in one place, easily organize their text style collections, and immediately find the fonts that are perfect for their ongoing projects.
The first thing you need to do before downloading the app installer from the homepage of the developer is to register on the website. You can use the entered credentials when you log in to your personal account from the app's interface. You cannot manage any font data without having this type of account. Also, you need to update the program if you want to have access to its latest version.
The Setup Assistant will help you configure the app's settings according to your needs, step by step. You can select the destination folder for the backed up font data, choose the locations from where Suitcase Fusion imports text styles, and install plugins if necessary. These plugins were created for the people who need to use the stored fonts in third-party apps, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, QuarkXPress, etc.
A very important advantage is that when you use a certain font in a document the plugins save the text style. The next time you open that file, the font in question is automatically activated. Hence, you don't need to search the font all over again to use it in your project.
Another thing I like about this tool is the fact that it can identify the metrics of each font. So, with that app's help, you're making sure you're using the correct text style in your projects.
In my opinion, this program is a must-have for graphic designers. The application offers you plenty of useful features, works perfectly,
- Simple to use
- Syncs stored font styles
- You can import Google fonts, system text styles, etc
- Comes with a built-in search tool
- Identifies the unique metrics of imported fonts
- You need to update the app after you install it on your Mac to have access to its latest version
