Freehand vs Adobe Illustrator

Freehand vs Adobe Illustrator

Freehand vs Adobe Illustrator

I am thinking of switching from Adobe Illustrator to Freehand MX.  I use Indesign 2.0 and Quark 4.4.  Has anyone had any problems exporting eps files generated by Freehand into these 2 programs and getting work printed?



RE: Freehand vs Adobe Illustrator

Freehand is a robust commercial-grade illustration package, as is Illustrator, that interfaces without problem to both Quark and In-Design. Stick to standard file formats such as EPS for imported work, use postscript fonts, suitable ppd's and postscript printers and you will have no problems.

RE: Freehand vs Adobe Illustrator

Why switch?
You hve to learn a new program new learning curve and
a lot of printers have problems ripping with freehand.
