could someone please explain why it's taken so long for adobe to go 64-bit? haven't they had about 10 years?
it's a bit underwhelming that in the time they've had, only photoshop is 64-bit and nothing else from the design suite.
i have had a love-hate relationship with adobe throughout the years. but realistically though, they won't be going away soon.
if adobe would just put their d*cks back in their pants admit they've been resting on their laurels and say to apple, 'hey guys, we want to be at the forefront in software innovation and we'd like your help in getting us there because you guys are writing the book on forward thinking...' they could be a kick-ass company. probably won't...
currently, when i import text from photoshop files to flash, either as editable text or vectors or even bitmaps, flash screws with the formatting. and the existing type options simply don't work.
i downloaded their 'text layout' extension (beta) from adobe labs and, almost immediately, stopped using it. it was ridiculously counter-intuitive (even for a beta). i'm stumped. for the life of me, i can't figure out why they can't port the type engine/interface from photoshop...
not true. just take the student with you when you go to the bookstore. they just need their student i.d. i suppose it wouldn't hurt to bring their class schedule, but that's really all there is to it. hell, i know a woman who is an employee of the u.c. system (the hospital) and she even gets discounts in the u.c. bookstore.
don't think it's that difficult. bottom line: how much is it worth to you to get the software at a decent price.
just find a student and ask them to use their i.d. and get the entire bundle for around $500 from their school bookstore.
i did this years ago when i was in school. of course, now i have to pay around $500+ for the design suite upgrade, but it's still better than paying over a grand for it.
