Pros: Merger of the best parts of the popular Suitcase font manager with Font Reserve 3 stablemate. Offers easy font-finding through Font Vault, and smart plug-ins.
Cons: Slightly harder to use and learn than the Apple Font Book, but it’s more powerful too.
Extensis has been promising this release for a couple of years, and it’s finally arrived. It’s a merger of the company’s popular Suitcase X1 font manager, and the rival Font Reserve 3, which Extensis bought in 2003.
According to the company, this marries the user interface and ease of use of Suitcase with the back-end power of Font Reserve, and adds some more features. Morrison Software’s Font Doctor 7 is also included, to detect and repair corrupt fonts.
