    Hi all

    Interesting - I was getting extremely frustrated with Suitcase 2.0 failing to activate fonts for use in Quark 8 or 9 when all of the same fonts are activated OK for use in Indesign, so I recently installed a trial of Suitcase 4.

    Much better. Don't get me wrong, I still don't want to use Quark at all, but it has made the previously maddening experience of getting perfectly OK fonts to activate (usually meant a restart and a cache flush) a non-event now (well at least so far).

    Cheers

    Fusion 4 Serial

    I'd love Suitcase Fusion 5, too! But in the meantime, I downloaded the trial of suitcase 4 from cnet

    http://download.cnet.com/Suitcase-Fusion-4/3001-2316_4-211733.html?spi=2e81c0c5532f799b9ee618dac312d6ec

    (it's not longer on the Extensis website now that suitcase 5 has been released) with the idea that I'd use the serial generator from Orlando Pirate.

    But I couldn't unpack the zip and have messaged Pirate about it. I'm too much of a newbie to access any of the full software available here on the forum. :)

    I use FontExplorerX for it's simplicity but I'm seeing that many people here are recommending Suitcase Fusion. Feels like I could do more with Suitcase.

    If you're diligent about assigning styles, foundry and tags to the fonts in your library, the 'find similar' functions are amazing.

    It's also nice to setup smart sets for foundries when you're working on typeface pairing and just want to play with the fonts from a particular foundry and turn off everything else in Adobe Suite.

    I use Extensis' Suitcase Fusion at work and Insider Software's FontAgent Pro at home. Of the I prefer the former. I agree with several of the other posters--FontAgent Pro has become glitchy in its latest versions. Plus, Suitcase Fusion is less expensive, too!

    Suitcase Fusion (Mac) when I used to have a ton of fonts. Nowadays I've reduced the amount of fonts and just use FontBook.

    I mostly agree with this - never found much use for Font Book.
