Suitcase Fusion 19.1.0

Post by jcsiegrist » 25 Jul 2018, 01:49

I encountered a problem with the upgrade of Suitcase Fusion 19.1.0; it seems that the SF Type Core does not recognize the extension 2017.

Hello,

Extensis Suitcase has no auto activation plugin for Quark 2018. The very helpful comment on the Extensis website is "At this time we do not plan to release a plug-in for Quark 2018 on either Macintosh or Windows."

Hi JC;

if you copy their XT for QX2017 to the folder for QX2018, then many people report that it works, though not supported.

XTensions for QuarkXPress 2018 should be here:
MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Quark/QuarkXPress 2017/XTensions
Windows: C:\Program Files\Quark\QuarkXPress 2018\XTensions

Thanks
Matthias

Hi,

Yes, unfortunately it seems to me that you do not activate fonts in embedded objects.

Hi Sergio,

it seems that in the recent update Extensis disabled the ability to use their XTension for 2017 in 2018.

You need to take that up with Extensis please, they told us they will consider based on user demand:

Thanks
Matthias

Greetings Sergio,

Unfortunately we will not be adding a plugin for QuarkXpress 2018 with Suitcase Fusion 8.

Sorry that we cannot help you on this occasion.

My understanding is the former Suitcase version for 2017 and its xtension work with Q2018. But not the latest SC version.

The latest Suitcase update looks like it resolved some of the interface changes that I hated.

I tried to go to the Extensis user forums to discuss, but they've been shut down.

I switched to Font Explorer a couple months back due to Extensis dropping Quark support. I had used Suitcase since the Adobe Type Manager Deluxe days, but I don't miss it at all.

They may have not overly liked all the criticism they were getting. Articles they had have also gone away.
