Extensis Launches Next Generation Font Menu for Microsoft Word and PowerPoint

PORTLAND, Ore.—February 18, 2015—Extensis® today announced Suitcase Attaché™, a next generation font menu that unleashes the power of typography in Microsoft® Word and Microsoft PowerPoint®.  Available for download today, Suitcase Attaché connects users to all their fonts in a new dynamic panel where they can browse preview and apply fonts directly in these popular applications. Suitcase Attaché immediately expands font collections by enabling access to more than 1200 free fonts from Google® Fonts, opening options well beyond the norm.

Presentation is everything. And in documents, that boils down to fonts. They set the tone for your story,” said Toby Martin, Director of Product Development at Extensis. “Whether you’re creating a corporate presentation or family newsletter, Suitcase Attaché leaves Arial to the worker drones and allows users to stand apart with bold, strong typography.”

With Suitcase Attaché, users can:

  • Connect all of their fonts to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, allowing them to browse, preview and apply fonts with one click
  • Access more than 1200 free fonts from Google Fonts, which are automatically updated when new fonts are added
  • Select fonts quickly with Suitcase Attache’s visually appealing menu
  • Say goodbye to the tedious drop down and scroll method of accessing a standard list of fonts

For users of Extensis’ professional font manager – Suitcase Fusion® – Suitcase Attaché automatically detects the Suitcase Fusion library and will auto-activate fonts from the collection. Suitcase Fusion users can also browse their full collection directly from Suitcase Attaché.

Pricing & Availability

Suitcase Attaché* is available for download for $20, and is offered in English, French, German, and Spanish. More information and a free 7-day trial download are available here.

Suitcase Fusion 6 Bundle

Customers who purchase Suitcase Fusion 6 will receive Suitcase Attaché for free, in addition to the latest release of FontDoctor ($70 value), the corruption fixing utility which helps keep font problems out of the creative workflow.

*NOTE: Suitcase Attaché is available for Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 thru 2013 on Microsoft Windows only.

  1. Experience has proven to me, that anyone who uses Word or PowerPoint don’t really know anything about typefaces and fonts and don’t really care.

      I hear your point, Kfenno, but I think that’s a little harsh. There are a lot of really great designers who are forced to use Word and Powerpoint by their jobs. They really do care, but their hands are tied.

    Looks pretty good but since I discovered this: http://www.coreldraw.com/en/pages/font-manager/index.html I manage fonts only with it because it is very easy to use
