I’ve been a loyal customer of Extensis for over 10 years. I’ve been paying for every upgrade, no matter how marginal the improvements, because I believe that good software deserves our support.
Fusion 8 is the most infuriating upgrade by far and a huge step backwards for its user base. As many have noted, we need the column view.
Imagine this. Apple decides that consumers no longer need the column view and can simply use the icon view. And when faced with mounting criticism, Apple simply informs you to use the icon view, but with file names alphabetically sorted and displayed in rows.
This is the tone deaf situation faced by users who are first to purchase Extensis’ newest products, many of whom are loyal supporters and professionals.
To make things worse, the search functionality is a joke/useless. If you are looking for “DIN Next Rounded LT Pro Regular” for example, you have to search the font in the exact sequence. No dice if you search “DIN Rounded”, “Rounded Regular” or “DIN Regular”. Column view was the workaround because keyword searches don’t work. Imagine if google searches only show results of the search terms in exact order and nothing else.
