Objective: Learn the essentials of font activation
Font activation is the core of font management. But what is it? Like many designers, you’ve amassed your font collection and want to use those fonts with your creative projects.
Fonts you activate within Suitcase Fusion can be found in the font menu of all of your favorite desktop applications.
Temporary Activation: These fonts are available in all applications until they’ve been manually deactivated or the user logs off the computer.
Permanent Activation: These fonts are available in all applications and remain activated even through computer restarts. These fonts will need to be manually deactivated.
To activate a font:
- Select a font(s) or family from a Library or Set.
- Click the Temporary or Permanent button on the toolbar.
- These fonts will appear in any desktop application's font or type menu.
Note: Fonts activated after launching some applications may not be available until after the application has been re-launched
Font Activation Tip:
Be aware that having too many fonts activated at once may cause computer performance issues. Fonts are pieces of software, and activating fonts will take up system resources.
