    Well they borked the recent CC app update and had to push out another one today, it was running 100% of one of my cores until I restarted the app and it installed a tiny update that fixed it.

    I also really wish they would stop encouraging the use of Photoshop for UI design. I know it's what most people use and are comfortable with, but that doesn't mean they should force a bunch of stuff for editing UIs into an app that's meant for touching up photos.

    You already have Illustrator and Fireworks, why not just make them more powerful since they are ALREADY made for UI design. Photoshop has become a bloated mess and I honestly don't understand how people can prefer using it over Illustrator, Sketch, Affinity Designer, or any of the other vector based tools that are in their current state 1000x better than Photoshop for UI design.

      This x1000. If you stick with Adobe for UI design, Illustrator is much easier/better.

      It's the defacto standard. Not much you can do there.

      TBH I quite like the new UI stuff. It certainly makes life easier for me.

      Hey Mattan - completely agree with you that PS has become bloated and it's not really suited for UI. See one of my older articles here:

      The new update however could be a step in the right direction if they deliver everything they promised (I got to test a beta a while ago).

      The way I see it - Illustrator is not meant for UI either, but rather illustration and it's just as clunky and imperfect. Fireworks hasn't been updated in years, and Sketch, while dedicated to UI, feels like more of a toy than a serious program and has no windows version.

      Until an amazing tool comes along, making PS better for UI design is a welcome change.
