Extensis has announced that it is now offering free Suitcase and Font Reserve plug-ins for Adobe InDesign CS2 that automatically activates fonts used in InDesign documents. The plug-ins ensure that anytime an InDesign CS2 file is opened, the exact fonts used in the file are automatically activated.
The free plug-ins are available for download from the Extensis Web site and support Suitcase X1 Single User and Suitcase X1 Client, as well as Font Reserve 3.1.4 Single User and Font Reserve Client 1.7.4. The new plug-ins require the latest update of InDesign CS2 from Adobe (version 4.0.1). With this update from Adobe, global font auto-activation is no longer supported by InDesign CS2, so plug-ins for third-party font management products are a requirement in order to support font auto-activation.
These updates can be downloaded at:
