How do I move a Suitcase Fusion font vault from one computer to another? (Mac)

Description

This article describes how to move a Suitcase Fusion font vault from one Mac to another.

Solution

Follow these instructions to move or copy your Suitcase Fusion font vault between Macs. The font vault contains your fonts, your font sets and any metadata you've added. NOTE: You can use your copied font vault in the same version of Suitcase Fusion that created it, or newer.
  1. On "Computer 1":
    1. Open Activity Monitor from /Applications/Utilities/
    2. Locate "FMCore" in the "Process Name" column and click the "Quit Process" button
    3. Locate your font vault. In Mac OS X, the font vault will be located at: /Users/username/Library/Extensis/Suitcase Fusion/Suitcase Fusion/fontvault
    4. NOTE: In Mac OS X 10.7 thru 10.12, this folder is hidden. To access it, select the Finder’s "Go" menu while holding down the "Option" key and select "Library" from the list.
    5. Copy the font vault to the second Mac (Computer 2)
  2. On "Computer 2":
    1. Download and install Suitcase Fusion from: http://www.extensis.com/support/
    2. Enter your Suitcase Fusion serial number to serialize the program
    3. Quit Suitcase Fusion
    4. Open Activity Monitor from /Applications/Utilities/
    5. Locate "FMCore" in the "Process Name" column and click the "Quit Process" button
    6. Move the font vault from "Computer 1" to the following location: /Users/username/Library/Extensis/Suitcase Fusion/
    7. Open Suitcase Fusion. You should now see the same fonts and font sets from "Computer 1".
This same technique can also be used to restore a backup of your font vault or to copy one between user accounts on the same machine.
