Installed 10.6 Snow Leopard, now printer doesn't work

Dear FreewayTalk

I thought I had better share this with you. I recently bought and
installed Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, and everything was great until
I tried to print something. Then I found that my HP Deskjet F380
printer doesn’t work with 10.6. The HP website says a driver will
appear one day, anyway.

If you are thinking of upgrading to 10.6, be careful that the same
thing doesn’t happen to you.

Too late, unfortunately. Although one printer does still work my Oki has
stopped.

Our Oki here is still running, but it seems as through Snow Leopard
has broken Freehand MX :frowning:

Really? Nooooooo!

That’s it. I’m definitely in luddite mode now, then. I shall have to
keep one of my systems running Leopard just for FreeHand, because I
refuse to accept Illustrator is better.

Illustrator isn’t better - just different. And I think you’re old
enough to remember the old Apple slogan “Think different”. :wink:

I know it’s different. I used to use Illo 5 and 6, and they were
fabulous. The current iteration I’m using (CS3) is a bloated mess.

I find I revert to FreeHand in order to get the job done and not step
through a ton of complicated hard-to-step-back-from manoeuvres in
Illustrator.

Anyway, there’s a huge thread about it on the Adobe forums, complete
with fixes to get FreeHand working on Snow Leopard. The monster lives.

The Freehand problem seems to be with the registration. It works with
a volume licence number but not with individual ones. See Heather’s
link for a solution.

Actually I think Illustrator is the monster - Freehand is too fleet of
foot! My comment was very tongue in cheek - although I 'm still happy
with Illustrator CS3 for the way I work - and Freehand certainly
doesn’t deserve to die.

I think this is the issue from what I’ve been reading, anyone with a
volume license seems to work.

I don’t use either Freehand or Illustrator, but I always loved
Freehand when I did use it. I remember the first time I tried
Illustrator; I drew a box on the page, then spent the next two minutes
trying to find out how to drag it bigger or smaller. Turns out you
needed to use a ‘Scale Tool’ or summat.

Heading off topic here - but give me Illustrator anytime :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ll give Adobe their due - Illo isn’t quite as obtuse as that any more.

You just can’t paste inside a path, which you can in InDesign, oddly.
Several times I’ve had to start drawing in Illo, drag it into
InDesign, do the stuff I need to do and then drag it back to complete
it.

All stuff I can do in FreeHand without thinking about it.

That hasn’t been necessary for a few versions now, but it was some time ago.

I am so used to using the clipping path that I don’t miss that much.

I have to say I don’t like the CS3/4 interface much. It was cleaner in earlier versions. Adobe has been shifting to a more Windows centric look for a few years now and it makes for a less than great Mac experience. Still it’s a very powerful tool. CS4 now includes transparent gradients which you could only get in Photoshop before which is nice.
