Extensis Unpacks New Suitcase 8 -- After resurrecting Suitcase from Symantec's Macintosh product graveyard (see "Extensis Rescuing Suitcase" in TidBITS-466), Extensis announced today that a new version of the venerable font control utility is now available via Extensis's Web site. Suitcase 8 features compatibility with System 7.5.5 and higher, plus improved font selection and set management. Additional baggage in the Suitcase family include Suitcase FontAgent, which offers font file diagnosis and troubleshooting features, and Suitcase 8 XT, a QuarkXPress XTension for automatically activating fonts when opening XPress documents. Suitcase 8 costs $90 for new owners in the U.S. ($100 for the International English version), $40 for those upgrading from previous Suitcase versions, or $50 for users of other font management utilities. You can download Suitcase 8 as a free 30-day demo (3.1 MB); a serial number can be purchased at the Extensis Online Store, though Suitcase was not listed at press time. Packaged versions will begin shipping 21-Apr-99. [JLC]
Hide TextExpander in the Dock
If you don't want to see TextExpander's icon in the Dock and the application switcher, you can remove it. Just open TextExpander > Preferences > Appearance, and select Hide TextExpander Icon in Dock. You'll still be able to access TextExpander from its menubar icon.
