Remember when you could open a suitcase and see what was inside? Well now Font Reserve opens when I double-click on a suitcase. Help? Please. Thank You.
I don't think there is a way to open font suitcases in OS X. This seems like an obvious kind of utility that would have been cooked up by now, but it hasn't. This is one of the reasons that, while I use OS X for everything else, I still keep another machine around running OS 9 for most of my font development. At least for the near term.
This has bugged me since day one. That and the fact that both suitcase and printer font icons are the same. What is Apple thinking?
Thanks to MacOs X to stop foolish graphic designer looking at our stuff! :-) Anyway, Type 1 PostScript fonts are dead, in OpenType you haven't any suitcases.
I hear you, Tiff. This has bugged my hairs too. By the by, when you double click on any font file in Panther (10.3), FontBook opens to display the contents of the file (OpenType/.ttf/.pfb/suitcase/whatever...) g.
Can you alter the contents of a suitcase the way you could in pre-OSX systems?
Not that I'm aware of. I'll have to play with that.
