system software: 1. A file for storing fonts or desk accessories. In System 7 if you double-click on a suitcase, it opens up to a window with an entry for each font size, and you can double-click each one to take a look at it. In System 6, if you double-click on a suitcase you'll launch the Font/DA Mover where you can create suitcase files. In that program you can click on the name of a font to see it displayed on the screen. System 7 does not create suitcases, and it handles fonts and DAs singly. Under System 7.1 a new folder called the Font Folder lives in the System Folder. You drag fonts into that folder to install them. 2. Suitcase II, by Fifth Generation Software is a utility that works quickly and efficiently with a large number of fonts, DAs, sounds and fKeys.
A type of file containing all the available screen fonts for a given font family. For example, the Helvetica suitcase would contain Helvetica Book, Helvetica Bold, Helvetica Italic, Helvetica 12pt, etc.
