    AD Freezing

    Hi Sean Thanks for the reply. Simple advertising board. Coloured layer and then dragged on a PDF of the logo and resized. Then added one line of text - attached now Regards Carl PS, only other thing a little odd, on the splash screen on startup, the version number if fuzzy. However, when loaded, and I select about AD - all fine Advertising Board v001.afdesign

    AD Freezing

    I have AD 1.6 & OSX 10.13.2 - plenty of spare RAM and disk space Trying to create large file 2440 x 914mm (8x3ft) at 300dpi Can make changes and saves the file but as soon as finished saving, app locks and have to force quit. Any ideas welcome thanks
  3. +1 from me - constantly pressing CMD+0 to get canvas back in middle of the screen after using with Magic Mouse

    Thanks for sharing - very useful
  12. Just trying out AD... Have been drawing maps for twenty years in FreeHand. As now on OSX 10, no FreeHand :( . Can't get on with Illustrator and hate the idea of paying Adobe every month so thought I would have a play. So attached my first quick draft. Really like AD, very quick to pick up. Somethings that did not jump out at me, a quick look on YouTube and job done. So far, only a couple of items missing that are essential to allow me to migrate fully: Text on a path. Essential for road names going around a curve especially if inside the text is inside the path. Dotted lines - wanted the footpaths to be dotted but no joy. Otherwise looking good and reading the forums, these items are on the roadmap - thanks AD Couple of things notice that are an issue but not deal breakers (unless I missed it): Only single page documents allowed. Fonts, quite a few of my fonts such as Zapf Dingbats, WebDings and FontAwesome not rendering - just getting square text boxes. Anyway - looking good Serif Suitably impressed
