    Extensis Suitcase Fusion

    I haven't used font management in a while, but when I did, I used Extensis Suitcase for mac. Now I'm on a windows platform, and looking to do some more font management. Can anybody help me with reviews on the Extensis Suitcase Fusion program? Anything better for Windows?

    Suitcase Fusion is the best font management solution for Windows system.

    The user interface of Suitcase Fusion is all the same on Mac and PC.

    Suitcase Fusion PC version also supports 'Font auto-activation' for InDesign/Quark/illustrator, therefore you don't need to activate your font manually any more.

    For layout designer, it is one very nice tool to increase your efficiency.

    I work on a PC and find Suitcase Fusion (for Windows) very useful for organizing my very large collection of fonts into groups and for general font browsing. The auto-activation with InDesign is also great.

    But when I want to print out font "books" or sample sheets, I find Printer's Apprentice offers much more flexibility.

    Suitcase Fusion is the best for Windows, I use it for a couple of months and autoactivation works great anda saves me lot of time.

    The latest version of Suitcase Fusion is very very stable and fast. Other font managers (Font Agent Pro e FontExplore) always gave me problems.

    I started using FontExpert and have had good luck with it. I managed to fix a few font issues I was having as well.
