CC2015 is so bad I bought a copy of Sketch.

    Could someone please do a Kickstarter to buy Fireworks from Adobe and make it awesome/supported again?

      I was a Fireworks user for years and years. Loved it. Put up with its quirks and had hope.

      To see that product writhe and do the death rattle on hospice inside the Adobe Death Machine is a damn unnecessary shame.

      Sad to say, at this point, my work flow is so heavily optimized for Sketch and the Sketch ecosystem that has sprung up (plugins, Invision, Zepelin, etc.,) - that I don't think I could go back to Fireworks.

      I don't think they're even interested in selling it. There were attempts, even getting lawyers involved to try and get them to open source Freehand and they just didn't care.

      Several thousand signed petitions to open source Fireworks and they presumably just looked at the number and scoffed that they better not because thats a few thousand potentially lost CC subscribers.

      Adobe doesn't care about you or the creative work their abandoned tools enabled. All they care about is that they get $600 a year and have to pay as few US based engineers as possible and farm out as much as they can to India as possible.
