Objective: Precise auto-activation with Font Sense
Unlicensed fonts and font substitutes can accidentally enter your workflow, causing havoc and sometimes costly errors. Ensuring font accuracy throughout the creative process means that time and money aren't wasted on reworking projects.
Font Sense is the patented technology behind Extensis' auto-activation plug-ins. Font Sense provides creatives with precise font matching so you can be confident that the right font will activate at the right time 100% of the time.
How Does Font Sense Work?
When fonts get added to Suitcase Fusion, Suitcase analyzes the font attributes down to the bit level and applies a unique ID to the font, also known as the Font Sense ID. Values such as font version, outline, width, and kerning tables are just a few of the attributes of what gets analyzed. No two fonts are alike, and every font has its own unique Font Sense ID.
Font Sense and Auto-Activation
When you open a document using Suitcase's auto-activation plug-ins, the plug-in looks for Font Sense IDs associated with the document. If a Font Sense ID is detected, Suitcase automatically activates the font(s) when the document opens.
