Grr! Illustrator is INFURIATING! :E

It selects the random wrong thing when you click on anything! You tell it to apply a fill color and it makes the object not only transparent but moves it three layers down! You drag a handle on a single curve and it resizes and distorts four objects that are totally unrelated to anything you're doing and might not even be in the same damn file!


*pant, pant, pant*

Okay, now I got that out of my system at least. Geeze. But at least I've got the beginnings of a system down. Now from here hopefully it's all practice.

Once upon a time... I worked in the student labs here at CMU. And there were installations of both Illustrator and Photoshop. And as far as I could tell, Illustrator was there to make my life incredibly difficult, and Photoshop was there to Get Things Done.


I still can't understand some of the things in Illustrator.

I'd totally go for one, too! Alas for a 3,000-mile commute!

I do have a For Dummies book on the subject, which I'm going to attack this weekend; hopefully that will help.

I have to wonder how much good the book will do when the dummy is the program itself.

I hate Adobe. I wish PSP were still owned by Jasc, and that people viewed it as a viable, "professional" graphics editor.

Same here. I haven't upgrade since they were bought out for fear of what it appears to have become, a photo retouch program.

Indeed. I have a pirate copy of 7. My dad insisted on sending me 9. Fortunately, he goofed and sent me the bonus disks and tutorial, not the software, so I don't have to install it to appease him.

I'm using version 9, the last to escape before the buy out, and it seems to be a good solid piece of software. I'd like to get a look at version 10 but I'm not spending the money to do so. All the ads and info I see on it just makes it look like they totally pushed the photo retouch side of things and did nothing for the art end.

I'll have to see if I can get a legit copy of 9.

Have the best

For a moment I thought you were talking about Strata3D.

People who don't like Illustrator often enjoy Macromedia Freehand...
