Adobe suite not so sweet

Got CS4 and wanted to try my hand at Dreamweaver and flash… figured that it wouldn’t be that difficult to take to it but I was wrong!

Sheeze man, I tried dragging an illustrator logo into DW and it wouldn’t read it… the interface bites and flash… don’t get me going with flash. I swear, why can’t Adobe take the drag and drop idea to DW and flash???

Thank God for Freeway!

Not that I agree with it, but the Adobe products are a different animal and they aren’t built like Apple products where it’s simple to use.

I use Flash and Dreamweaver on a regular basis and nobody taught me how to use them until I went to Lynda.com and downloaded the “Essential Training” for both Flash and Dreamweaver and now it’s not complicated.

I’d encourage you to not get “fired up” or “intimidated” about a product until you’ve used it enough to decide whether it’s the program approach that fits your work flow.

I agree, Lynda is a great resource. I’ve also found <http://tv.adobe.com/

to useful on occasion.

Agreed, allow me to explain my point a bit better. I just wish Flash and DW were more like freeway and other drag’n drop interfaces… that’s all I’m saying.

I watched a few videos from tv.adobe.com and found them helpful, it’s just that it seems freeway does a better job reading and using PSD and ILLUS files than DW does.

Jus’say’n… :wink:

Some of the Adobe products seem to have quite a few of bugs. I regularly get error messages saving .ai files, usually with a meaningless message, probably a font issue as they go away if I convert to outlines. If you want to see what other people about think about Adobe and need a good laugh take a look HERE.
