Last week my daughter and I decided to get breakfast before we attended our Adobe MAX sessions. As our breakfast came to an end, the waiter walked over and said: “The gentleman at the table behind you has taken care of your meal.” He then handed me the business card shown above.
Apparently, I had missed him while sitting at our table. (No surprise since I hadn’t had any coffee yet) But appreciated his note.
“You are keeping us on our toes! Thanks, Von!” - Anubhav
Anubhav was formerly the head of the Illustrator team, and many times over the years I've talked with him about problematic functionality. He now heads up their whole product line for design, layout, and publishing.
My beef with software is just that, with software. The people behind the products (Those I’ve met in person) have always been nice individuals, and Anubhav is one of them.
I expect pro-level behavior and performance from the tools I use, and you all know my love/hate relationship with Adobe Illustrato. I’m glad the ones who develop it don’t take it personally, it’s not I’m just very passionate about what I do and when software gets in the way I get very frustrated.
That said, I’m happy to say that after nearly five years the snapping bug in Illustrator has finally been fixed with the CC 2018 version released last Wednesday at Adobe MAX.
PS: The big issue now is stability. So hopefully CC 2018 will perform better than CC 2017? We’ll see.
