I have half-heartedly tried Ai and just don't get it:-( I have loved FreeHand from the start, so simple, so user friendly, so printer friendly. I am self-taught and work by myself as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator and I dread thinking about having to start using Ai. I have just replaced my MacBook Air and of course Lion doesn’t recognise FreeHand so I am very upset. I still use it EVERYDAY on my Mac Pro and like others I also have thousands of FreeHand files. I am so glad to have found other people who think like me and dream for FreeHand to be freed.
