Fonts activate without Suitcase ...

Discuss third-party XTensions® software for QuarkXPress 2015 and QuarkXPress 2016.
As the API hasn't changed between 2015 & 2016 versions, most XTension running in QuarkXPress 2015 should also work in QuarkXPress 2016.

Fonts activate without Suitcase ...

Post by shaun » 09 Sep 2016, 05:37

Now here's a strange development.
I recently created a document using fonts I had activated using Suitcase Fusion (6) on Yosemite, saved it, and shut down the Mac. Normally I have Suitcase set to open on launch, but this particular day it was switched off.
Clicked on the file; all fonts appeared as intended - but how? Suitcase was off, and normally QX will tell you the fonts aren't available.
All very odd, I thought. So I shut down the Mac; restarted; tested again, checked, and every time even with Suitcase off the fonts normally activated by Suitcase were present.
Have I missed something? Has there been some change in Quark?
Not that I'm complaining, you understand; just puzzled!

Hi,

Please check for the usage dialog font path by expanding more info. Also, check in your Suitcase the fonts might be activated permanently.

Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for contacting Quark.

Kindly provide the QuarkXPress version and Suitcase Fusion XT version.

Kindly share any one of the affected font to analyze the issue. (send to apalaniappan@quark.com)

Thanks

Suitcase Fusion 6, version 17.3.2
Quark 2016 version 12.1.0.0
and I have just sent a font to you as requested.
Quark 9 documents opened by Qk 2016 also open with correct fonts even though Suitcase is off.

Hi Shaun,

I'm curious... did this get resolved for you and if so, what did you end up doing?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer -
Apart from upgrading OS to OSSierra, no change.
Just now tried a new test. Opened Suitcase, selected fonts; created document with those fonts; saved document. Closed Suitcase.
(Just to make sure, restarted iMac. Suitcase is not set to open at start.)
Selected fonts in document were correctly displayed (see screenshot).
Suitcase was not on - as can be seen from its icon in the Dock snippet.
Occasionally a font is highlighted as missing when Suitcase is off.
Shaun
