If you just want to jump in and get going with the Connect Fonts desktop app, you’ve come to the right place.
Check the system requirements.
You need to be running macOS 11 or later, or Windows 10 or later. See System requirements for details.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Connect Fonts or Suitcase Fusion, archive your Font Vault.
This will allow you to revert easily to the older version. See Archiving the Font Vault.
Disable or uninstall any other font manager.
If you are running Suitcase Fusion 6 (version 17.x) or later, you can just stop the Type Core and continue. (We recommend that you uninstall an older version but it is not required.)
If you are running Universal Type Server or a different font manager, uninstall it or disable it before running Suitcase Fusion.
Download the Connect Fonts desktop app installer.
Get it from Connect Fonts Support.
Install the application.
On Mac, open the disk image and drag the Connect Fonts icon into your Applications folder.
On Windows, run the installer and follow the instructions.
Start the Connect Fonts desktop app.
If you are not upgrading an older version, when you start the Connect Fonts desktop app for the first time it will present the setup wizard. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish the setup.
If you have upgraded from an older version of Connect Fonts or Suitcase Fusion, then the Connect Fonts desktop app will back up your database and update your plug-ins.
