anti alias? freehand 9 problem..

anti alias? freehand 9 problem..

Hi, I've a question about freehand 9.
When I create shapes they look jaggy on my screen, my shape isn't smooth looking like when I draw a shape in Illustrator.. The only way I get my shape "anti-aliased" is when I switch to "Flash anti-alias", but if I create a shape in that mode and then import it into Illustrator, a lot lines don't look perfect anymore, same if I switch between preview and flash anti alias mode. Is there a way in freehand 9 to get the same smooth visual results when I create shapes in Illustrator?

RE: anti alias? freehand 9 problem..

Anti aliasing is only a rendering issue. In vector based programs, like Illustrator & Freehand, it's only purpose is to provide an attractive screen representation of your file. The information in the file remains the same, whether it's in preview or flash anti-alias mode.
