Suitcase Fusion 7 reviewed

My husband wrote a helpful review of Extensis' just-released font management utility Suitcase Fusion 7 at Macworld/PC World. The two new important features are an auto-activation plug-in for Adobe After Effects, and a TypeSync feature that synchronizes your font library on two computers. Many designers are using After Effects to create animated text and will appreciate this new plug-in. And of course many creatives use more than one computer (or location) and TypeSync keeps their font library identical in both places.

In addition, Extensis released a new TeamSync subscription service, which provides Suitcase Fusion to any number of team members and lets them share the same font library. Read all about it in Jay's story here. (And be sure to see Jay's review of version 6, which explains the impressive features that are carried over in version 7.)
