  • Posted to Adobe officially ceases development of all Edge tools, in reply to Duncan Russell , Dec 01, 2015

    yeah, same. I actually have a huge project, worth about $24K in billings, in Edge Animate that has been left totally stranded by this. and I don't trust Adobe when they say they're going to keep tools available, especially after their splashy introduction of Edge and subsequent silent abandonment of the projects. I couldn't even get any of the former project leads who had clearly left the suite apps to say anything.

    the key word in my post being "officially."

    the Edge Animate user base, while active, has been literally told nothing for a solid year, meanwhile having been pitched the entire Edge concept as Adobe finally getting their game together for the web... three years ago. Adobe is completely untrustworthy.

    not the author claims to be a designer yet has an empty dribbble profile, no work in evidence on their twitter, but a prolific beauty products review blog.

    Charles, with all due respect, I was on the Creative Cloud steering committee for five years, and before that working closely with Adobe in my work as contributing ed with Print Magazine. all that ever happens is team members —who mean very well—apologize for new bugs and try to get them fixed, the marketing team keeps shifting focus and glossing over problems, leading to repeated failures to meet expectations, and the executives keep ignoring the glaring errors their top-down management culture creates. while I appreciate your participation here, the culture you are in is absolutely toxic to designers and design.

  • Posted to Adobe is not at fault, its executives are, in reply to Pedro Ivo Hudson , Jul 12, 2015

    this is true. before adobe was the norm on both platforms in the early 90s, engineering happens on Win and design on Mac, and communication was utterly painful.

    ironically it's also Adobe's cross platform code that makes their tools so awful to work with on Mac. the interfaces just do not work well with native windowing, and it keeps getting worse.

    Photoshop's export function, billed as a replacement for save for web, sometimes won't save a file. don't know why. haven't applied the new illustrator patch yet, but 2015 is riddled with display performance issues when GPU preview is on. Edge Animate 2015 update added a slew of new bugs while fixing old ones and adding like one significant new feature. comme ci , comme ca. it's rumored to be at end of life but Adobe hasn't and won't make any official statement to the community.
