Does Adobe plan to deliver a FreeHand MX release to support Intel -based Mac computers? A. Adobe has no plans to deliver Universal versions of FreeHand that natively support Intelbased Mac computers. While FreeHand MX can be installed and run on Intel-based Mac computers, it must run under Rosetta, which Apple has built into Max OS X to dynamically translate PowerPC-based applications to work with Intel-based Macs.

Technical Support plans to document any known issues in the Adobe knowledgebase, which customers can access at Enter the keyword Vista.

We understand that customers have significant investments in their current production work flows and may need to replace or add seats of FreeHand. While we encourage customers to evaluate Illustrator CS3 (free 30-day trials are available for testing on, we know that is takes time to plan and prepare for any major transition and we will continue to sell and support FreeHand while that demand lasts.

Illustrator CS3 Features for FreeHand Users Q. Are there new features in Illustrator CS3 specifically targeted to FreeHand users? A. Yes. The Illustrator development team took a hard look at improving tools and drawing controls, integration, and file import, and for Illustrator CS3, delivered a number of enhancements for FreeHand users:
Improved operating performanceMore responsive drawing and editing, with improvements
in essential operating performance, including faster screen redraws, object moving, panning, scaling, and transformations.
Flash integrationNow import native Illustrator files into Flash CS3 Professional, or copy/
paste artwork from Illustrator to Flash with paths, anchor points, gradients, clipping masks, and symbols intact. Layers, groups, and object names are also preserved.
Eraser toolRemove areas of artwork with the Eraser tool as easily as you erase pixels in
Photoshop, with complete control over the width, shape, and smoothness of the erasure.
Path editingRemove, connect, and split paths, and convert anchor points, using options that
are now displayed in the Control panel. Rolling the mouse over curve handles provides an enlarged view of points for easier selection.
Point alignmentAlign and distribute anchor points with one click via the Control panel, just
as with aligning and distributing objects.
Color controlsLive Color provides in-depth control over color, including the ability to add
used colors from any artwork selection to the Swatches panel, remove all unused colors, and find and replace colors.
FreeHand File ImportAbility to import FreeHand files from all versions from FreeHand 7
to FreeHand MX. See Importing FreeHand Files Into Illustrator on page 4 of this FAQ for details.
Benefits of Migrating to Illustrator CS3 Q. What are the benefits of migrating to Illustrator CS3 compared to staying with FreeHand? A. Migrating from FreeHand to Illustrator CS3 offers a number of compelling advantages:
Assured compatibility with new operating systems and hardware, such as Intel-based Macs
and Microsoft Windows Vista.
Deep integration with Adobe professional products: design applications, such as Photoshop,
InDesign, and Adobe Acrobat ; Adobe web and interactive applications including Flash and Dreamweaver; and Adobe video and motion graphics applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.
On-going product development, with tighter workflow integration, improvements to existing
functionality, and new capabilities.
Rich and reliable support of PDF work flows, including the latest PDF file formats and

standards, (e.g., PDF/X). Q. FreeHand is my primary application, so product integration is not that important for me, and Ive never learned Illustrator. Why should I move to Illustrator CS3? A. First, your experience working with FreeHand will make the migration to Illustrator easier than you may think. Illustrator and FreeHand have similar approaches to basic drawing tools and operations, (e.g., pen tool, bzier curves, stacking of objects), and if youve any experience with another Adobe application, such as Photoshop or InDesign, your move will be even easier because all Adobe graphics applications share common commands, panels, and keyboard shortcuts. But Illustrator CS3 also delivers a number of capabilities that FreeHand users will appreciate:
An efficient workspace Flexible workspaceThe revised Adobe user interface, common to Illustrator CS3, Photo-
shop CS3, InDesign CS3 and Flash Professional CS3, lets you view the toolbar in one column instead of two, dock self-adjusting panels conveniently out of the way as icons when not in use, and use Maximized Screen mode to keep panels from overlapping the document window.
Control panelDiscover options faster and free up screen real estate by accessing anchor
point controls, clipping masks, envelope distortions, and more from the context-sensitive Control panel.
Custom workspacesWork more efficiently and optimize your screen area using custom
workspaces that display only the panels you need for a specific task. Save, share, or access any workspace at any time or use workspace templates.
Creative power Live TraceQuickly and accurately convert photos, scans, or other bitmap images to editable
and scalable vector paths.
Live PaintApply color to any area of your artwork and use overlapping paths to create new
shapes with Live Paint, which intuitively colors artwork and automatically detects and corrects gaps.
Live ColorExplore, apply and control color in a completely new color environment. Select
any artwork and interactively edit the colors with live feedback, and use the Color Guide panel to quickly choose tints, shades, or harmonious color combinations.

Beautiful typography OpenType Simplify cross-platform font management and take advantage of alternate
glyphs and extended character sets. More than 100 OpenType fonts are included free with Illustrator CS3.
Character and Paragraph StylesApply formatting to individual characters, lines of type, or
entire paragraphs with a single click.
Paragraph compositionOptimize line breaks throughout an entire paragraph with minimal
hyphenation and better word and letter spacing.
Transparent text effectsExpand your typographic options using ghosted text, transparent
drop shadows with soft edges, and other effects for transparent text.
Reliable output compatible with the latest standards PDF/X supportCreate reliable, press-ready layouts using ISO-standard and ANSI-standard

PDF/X formats.

Near-universal graphic file format supportWork with almost any type of graphic file,
including AI, PDF, EPS, SVG, Photoshop (PSD), TIFF, GIF, JPEG, SWF, and more.
DeviceN colorspacePlace duotone or separated Photoshop images in Illustrator and
preserve the files native color space with DeviceN support. Use multi-component and HiFi color, raster effects, transparency, and gradient meshes with confidence that your artwork will separate correctly.
LAB spot colorsCreate LAB spot colors and use predefined spot colors from the Toyo,
PANTONE , DIC, and HKS libraries.
Intuitive printing interfaceEnjoy consistent results with an intuitive, comprehensive
printing interface that provides optimized presets for a wide variety of devices. Multipage Support Q. One FreeHand feature that is important to me is the ability to produce multi-page documents. Will Illustrator CS3 support the creation of multi-page documents? A. Illustrator CS3 follows a single-page-per-document model. However, you can use the Illustrator page tiling feature to simulate multiple pages in a single PDF document. Once a page is set up with page tiling, you can automatically convert all page tiles to individual pages within the resulting PDF file. In addition, the new Crop Area tool in Illustrator CS3 provides a fast and intuitive way to export pages from a large artboard containing artwork for multiple and/or different-sized pages for output as PDF files, for printing or for export to other formats. For professional multi-page document creation capabilities, Adobe offers InDesign, with features that can handle any page design project, with detailed indexing, easy table creation, character styles, and state-of-the-art printing controls. Importing FreeHand Files Into Illustrator Q. What about the large library of FreeHand files that I have? How will I be able to use them with Illustrator CS3? A. Illustrator CS3 includes the new ability to import FreeHand 10 and MX files directly and with higher fidelity than in previous releases. But there are several ways to get FreeHand files into Illustrator CS3 by using different file types. Determining the best way to move files depends on the type of illustration and whether you plan to edit the text in the file. Adobe has created a technical resource that provides a side-by-side comparison of different file types, along with a detailed discussion for each. This guide, Migrating from FreeHand to Illustrator, a Technical Resource, is available on the Illustrator product pages of at:
