Does anyone know if suitcase will work in Panther? I am asking this because I know apple has its own Font program in Panther now. I dont know if they would conflict with eachother or not.

I've only seen a Demo version of Panther and Suitcase was not loaded...

Scuttle butt on Adobe's Typography Forum is that Panthers Font Management will be OK for most users but Professional Graphics People should still count on using Suitcase or Font Reserve....

That could change since Panther is not final yet...

My own limited testing with Font Book in Pather shows that yes, professional graphics people will need Suitcase or Font Reserve.

The only layout app that works correctly with Font Book is InDesign (no surprise there). Quark (even version 6) has tons of problems with it.

If built-in font management is going to work then apps will have to updated to Apple's ATSUI standard and this will take some time.

BTW, Cocoa apps behave as they shoud with Font Book, Carbon apps is a hit and miss affair. I haven't tried Suitcase in Panther yet but version XI is a real improvement on Jag.
