Objective: Automatically activate fonts when you open your documents
There are millions of fonts out in the creative world today. Some fonts have thousands of variations (looking at you Helvetica). Whether you’re working in a production environment, sharing a project with a co-worker, or sending proofs to a client for review, there are dozens of ways for the font that you’ve used in your creative file to be misplaced with another version, leading to costly mistakes.
With Extensis’ auto-activation plug-ins, our patented Font Sense technology ensures that precisely the right fonts will be activated when you open your creative files.
