InDesign CS vs. Suitcase

I just installed the Adobe Creative Suite, however InDesign and Illustrator no longer launch the Suitcase (10.2.2) auto-activation feature, therefore I constantly have to manually turn on all the fonts I am working with in a document before I open it.

Any thoughts?

You’re going to have to wait until Suitcase udpates their auto-activation plug-ins for the CS applications, I’m afraid. I understand they’re working on it.

Same goes for Quark 6…

A quick rundown of current auto-activation compatibility on OS X.
(correct me where I’m wrong):

Suitcase 10.2.2 = SC || FontAgent Pro 1.3 = FA

Photoshop 7 — SC yes, FA yes
Illustrator 9,10 — SC yes, FA yes
InDesign 2 — SC yes, FA yes
Quark 5 (classic) — SC yes, FA yes
Quark 6 (OS X) — SC no, FA yes
All Adobe CS — SC no, FA no (both managers plan updates soon)

Font Book and MasterJuggler do not feature any auto activation.
I don’t know much about Font Reserve, but I imagine it’s
not going to be around much longer now that Extensis
gobbled them up. Typographica will have a feature on all
the OS X font managers in a couple weeks.
