Right, as soon as I’ve written this, I’m going to duck for cover!
Being and Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign user, I thought I’d give Muse a crack, as a lot of the interface is very similar.
Maybe the UI is swaying my judgement, but I’m really enjoying the learning experience - little bits of frustration combined with “HA! That’s how it works”.
From my very limited (2 days) play with it, I’m pretty sure it’s not as in depth as the the pro users (Thomas, Ernie, Walter Tim etc) could go with Freeway, however, for someone who’s main job is an illustrator who just happens to get a few sites from time to time, on the surface it seems right up my street.
Another thing that appeals to me is that I probably won’t forget how to do things because of the familiarity with the interface, and this was one of my big problems with Freeway. After a few months away from it, I could just about remember how to start a site.
I’m sure i’m missing on a out a lot of features because I’m not sure of different terminology or under which menu they may be hidden (i.e.: I can’t see how to have padding or margins on DIVS), but it’s slowly coming together in my head.
I’m now running for cover………
………Good luck everyone with whatever path you choose to follow after Apple updates itself a couple of times and Freeway can no longer take the strain. A great shame, but these things happen
