    Default FH MX and Tiger

    I have Freehand MX and I just upgraged from OS X 10.3.8 to OS X 10.4.1.
    Now some of my guides and snap-to's do not work.
    (but they all worked fine in previous OSX)

    I go to View>Guides>Show.....
    and the check mark always stays next to "show". It will not toggle on and off.

    Same with View>Guides>Snap to guides.
    I cannot get them to turn ON.. At all.

    BUT
    I can go to View>Snap to Point, and Snap to Object
    and both of those will toggle off and on.


    It's not me, I have been using Freehand since it was an Aldus product.
    Do I need to contact Macromedia?

    Thanks!

    Your problems are known issues. Macromedia has a "FreeHand MX emerging
    issues" page with info:

    http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_18893

    You can call Macromedia, but don't expect them to do anything since the sale
    of the Macromedia to Adobe is pending. Hum, that reminds me. Even before the
    pending sale announcement they did nothing to fix problems with FH!

    mirkatu,

    You can turn on and off the guides via the layers palette. Snap to Guides still works.

    U can generate new keystroke command for that certain action, like cmd + ; is
    on and off the guide, than u can create another new keystroke that suit u.
    (mine also do that, bcos no choice at the moment :( )

    Bruce it's not just Freehand that has had no attention lately

    last updates:

    Freehand MX - 25 feb 04
    Dreamweaver - 11 march 04
    Flash MX - 27 sep 04
    Director - 16 sep 04
    Fireworks - 3 feb 04

    Tiger was officially released April 29th 2005, and I am sure that Macromedia
    would have had a developers package well before that date, which just goes to
    show that Macromedia really dont care whether their software runs well on any
    platform.

    what kind of issues are there with the other apps listed here regarding Tiger?

    cheers, Robert

    Had a look at the forums for the other apps, they are all having issues with
    Tiger,
    Dreamweaver seems to have been rendered unusable, so many issues it's not
    real, also updated over 15 months ago just like Freehand.

    this really s

    Robert,

    Yes as far as updates go. But FH is still a full version behind the
    other studio apps.
