Hi, I'm Gary Bouton, author and mediocre illustrator, and instead of taking my own advice to lurk before posting to get the Lay or The Land, here goes:

 

• I love the abilitry to use the mouse wheel push to pan the page. Now, can the mouse wheel be set to zoom instead of scrolling, or offer the option? I'm a Windows Guy, apologies in advance, and don't care much for Adobe Illustrator, never have, because it takes something like 5 moves to do something that can be done in 2 in CorelDRAW, and one in Xara Designer. So mouse wheel Zoom as a feature request, please?

 

• As long as there's a right-click Context menu, do you think you could put anchor (node, connector, knot, the guy a path travels through) changes on the Context menu? You know: cusp, smooth, perhaps even symmetrical? This saves a trip up to the bar on top, and I'm sure I couldn't memorize Ctrl, Alt, Shift, or combinations thereof.

 

It's an absolutely fantastic "One oh" program, and I love the examples you've chosen from artists to promote the product. The work in one of the biggest reasons I signed up for the Beta!

 

My Best,

 

Gary

Hi, I'm Gary Bouton, author and mediocre illustrator

 

I'm pleased to 'meet' you, Gary. :)

 

I guess you're too modest to describe yourself as an award-winning illustrator, not to mention being the designer of numerous CharityWare fonts! Which reminds me, I really ought to install 'Elephants and Bears' on this machine so that I can use it again.

Hi Gary, nice to see you here!

 

If you have a mouse with a middle button, it is set up to pan the document.

All you folks are making me feel very welcome here! Thanks; I feel like I have a new place to hang out.

 

Wow! Alfred! elephants 'n' Bears was my very second typeface! I think I'm up to 20 now, some of them free, all of them a labor of love.

 

Speaking of Love, I love, love (and did I mention "love"?) AD. Thank you so much for porting this to Windows!

 

My Best,

 

Gary
