What Is Connect Fonts?
Connect Fonts is the future of font management. It provides two ways you can manage, search, and activate your fonts:
Connect Fonts Desktop: Suitcase Fusion with a new name.
Connect Fonts in the Browser: A cloud-based font management application. This application allows individual designers or global teams to access all your fonts in one place. It also features intuitive search and font pairing recommendations to help you find the perfect font.
The desktop version can handle all your classic font management needs, and now the browser application enriches your creative workflow and is accessible from anywhere.
