Version 7 adds support for the newest Mac and Windows operating systems, automatic cloud-based backup and syncing, and a new plug-in for Adobe After Effects.

The new TypeSync feature doesn t replace the Archive and Restore feature introduced in version 6, which lets you copy your entire Font Vault to your Dropbox or Google Drive, and then restore it on another computer.

Version 7 adds a completely new plug-in for Adobe After Effects CC 2015, which is being used by more and more designers to create animated text.

With this plug-in, you no longer need to remember which fonts were used in each composition, a giant benefit since After Effects on its own doesn t help you determine which fonts are missing.

As with earlier versions, Suitcase Fusion 7 includes auto-activation plug-ins for recent Adobe and Quark products, specifically: Photoshop, InDesign, InCopy and Illustrator versions CS6 and higher , and QuarkXPress 10 and 2015.

In addition, Extensis new Suitcase TeamSync is an affordable alternative for teams who want to share the same font library but can t justify the cost or maintenance of Extensis Universal Type Server product.
