Suitcase Fusion 8 — Features Request


#1

Just in case you are under the impression that only Mac users want certain features, here’s a place to request those features in Suitcase Fusion 8 for Windows, too.

  1. Absolutely essential–please make this a priority: Bring back COLUMN VIEW
  2. Allow Edit Attributes panel to be docked (or at the very least, NOT MODAL, as it is now). And let it remember the last Attribute Tab used. As it stands, it takes at least three extra actions to edit attributes; unacceptably time-consuming if you are cataloging scores of fonts.

I can think of several more enhancements, but the two listed above are essential to return SF8 to the functionality of previous versions.


#2

Totally agree with that. This update is a disaster.

I’ve expected that adding tags and displaying fonts with given tags would be even easier in version 8 than in version 7 but instead, you’ve made it much more difficult. And removing Column View as well…

Please bring back docked Attributes Panel and Column View!


#3

Yes, why did they remove the column view???Now i can’t activate the whole family and have to select all the single fonts of a family… no go for a fast workflow… Pls bring it back!!!


#4

Well, actually you can select the whole family:
click on the symbol with the 4 squares(tiles), now you have a view with the complete font family.
Click on the font name, it will select the complete family, click on the grey circle, now it will activate the complete family at once!


#5

I just installed Suitcase Fusion 8. It is a serious downgrade and a setback to my workflow.

I would like to voice support to the above responses: Please bring back column/list view and a docked, editable attributes panel.

I need to be able to quickly sort the fonts list by type and/or classification.

I see no advantage to Fusion 8 over 7. I would be happy with a return Suitcase Fusion 7 with plug-ins for CC2018.

I wish that I had visited this Forum before upgrading to version 8.

Count me in. Adding keywords to fonts is taking so much longer. What the hell? Did they ever even try it out?


#7

An undo button. I have accidentally put a tag or classification on all of my fonts. Days to correct. An undo button would prevent such catastrophes.
