Not surprisingly, especially with the release of CS3, Freehand will go the way of PageMaker and many other products, as Adobe will no longer develop it. I’ve used Freehand, I’ve taught others how to use it and, honestly, I’ve never liked it.
It could be one of those things where I used Illustrator first and not Freehand and if it were the other way around, maybe I would’ve liked it. What I didn’t like about it was that it just felt clunky. There were hundreds of palette’s and features, but you had to seriously dig to find them.
I’m not going to miss it, will you?
