I thought the news of Adobe purchasing Macromedia was great for the Flash guys....and I sort of liked the move for the past few days...until I realized that I have been a Freehand guy from day one....don't use Illustrator at all and don't want to...and now it may be curtains for Freehand. Now I think the buyout kind of stinks. Anyone else have feelings about the Illustrator Freehand thing? I kind of liked the rivalry...now what do we have to talk about?
Multiple pages in a single doc...I produce a newsletter with 16 pages. Each newsletter is a single doc. Text control is only rivaled by Quark. Makes perfect PDF files. Can select single pages or the whole doc to create PDF's.
I have always preferred the outlines/handles Freehand puts on objects...Illustrator's were always a little horsey.
Maybe Adobe will upgrade Illustrator to Freehand's capabilities.
