Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Suitcase Fusion 4

Send Article to a Friend

Font management utility Suitcase Fusion from Extensis has been updated to version 4 with a wealth of new features. It introduces the Extensis Font Panel to Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, enabling you to activate fonts on the fly. Additionally, WebINK users can use the Font Panel in Photoshop to create design comps and previews using WebINK fonts. An auto-activation plug-in has been added for Adobe InCopy CS4, CS5, and CS5.5, ensuring that shared InDesign documents will display the same fonts. Other additions include the capability to set font and background colors used in the Previews pane, easier selection of fonts for grouped sets and favorites, display of both PostScript font names and font names as they appear in your app’s Fonts menu, and free access to over 500 font families from Google Web Fonts. ($99.95 new, $49.95 upgrade from previous versions, 63 MB, release notes)
