    Head over to macromedia.com... and there it is, the rather staid adobe logo gracing the front page with the tag "formerly macromedia". how cheeky can you get? the redesign is ugly. :sour:

    so long freehand... :dead:

  3. That's quite good news for me when i first heard it. At least it's now possible to merge freehand and illustrator's features. Less hassle for the artists out there.

    Wala na talaga... Freehand wasn't in the Studio 8, instead there was Contribute and that other thing... Pakinabangan ko nlang ung freehand mx...

    Incidentally, I made a freehand icon that pretty much looks like the Studio 8's icons. hehe. In denial talaga...

    Im a huge Macromedia user from Flash, Fireworks, Freehand and an occasional Dreamweaver (4, 5, MX and MX 2004).

    Nakakalungkot. :(

    Sana they (Adobe) would just incorporate FH's multiple pages feature in the upcoming Illustrator software.
