    Default Freehand 10 crash

    Have Mac OS X Tiger installed, plenty of RAM and am unable to get past page
    setup in Freehand 10 without crashing. Therefore, I can't print on my Epson
    (ET) 820 inkjet. I also run Freehand 10 in 9.2.2 and am able to access page
    setup and then print successfully. I produce lesson plans and design examples
    for my advertising layout and design class at Ohio University and need to
    produce my work at home and photocopy it at the school for student handouts.
    Any suggestions? Is there a preferrence in Tiger that is causing my problem?
    Tiger is ggggreat, but I use Freehand extensively and need a fix.

    I'm also having the same difficlutues with FreeHand 10.0 & OS X Tiger (running
    a G4 and using an HP Deskjet 940c).

    As the difficulty seems idenpendent of printer, I'm guessing that it may be an
    interaction between FH10 and Tiger (or possibly print drivers)...

    This is bad news. I use FH10 for most of my Pre-Press work instead of MX
    because of the new way of handling grouped objects and the frequent quitting. I
    am connected to three Postscript Level 3 printers and will try it out when I
    get my new G5 2.7 soon. I will report on my findings as I get my new machine. I
    absolutely love Freehand 10 and do not want to stop using it as my workhorse
    program.

    Hi David,
    G5 2.7?
    LUCKY BUM!
    All we need now is for the software to work on it, eh?

    Aowchek,

    I am looking forward to the new G5. I already own a G5 Dual 2 Ghz at my office which I will be taking home. I am a real Geek.

    Solved my printing problem re Page Setup causing Freehand to crash. My system:
    iMac G4 17", Epson 820usb. Go to Freehand 10 Preferences, select Doent and
    change Freehand Default to Freehand US Letter. You've bypassed Page Setup. If
    you need to change the setup, type in page desired in the Freehand Nameplate
    slot. Also if you are using a Wacom tablet you probably won't get the pen to
    give you variable line widths via pressure. This is not just a Tiger issue.
    It's surely your tablet application in conjunction with a Freehand 10 program
    fault. If you use Tiger and have solved the pen pressure problem please tell us
    the solution. I have updated Wacom to 4,7.9-2 and this gives me pen tool
    pressure sensitivity in Painter 7.
