Has anyone noticed any improved performance? I tried the CS3 on two PCs, both with fast CPUs and 2gig of ram and panning / zooming does not feel any faster than in CS2. The reviews claim 50% boost on Macs. I don't see anything worth spending $600 on PC side.
I'm always weary of claims like "50% faster". In what context? Is it 50% faster when you're designing an A4 flyer? Is it still 50% faster when working on a huge map?
I tried the trial version some time ago, but never got around to testing some really large documents. I'll see if I have some time soon to run some CS2 vs CS3 tests with a stopwatch...

Maybe its a font thing. Not sure yet.

Most imporantly, importing from Freehand MX is just about seamless. You still have issues of closed text boxes converting to text-in-a-box (Somewhere there's a plug-in waiting to be made that takes text-in-a-box in AI and converts it to text-on-a-point and adds carraige returns as appropriate. And some other minor type-shift issues, but a HUGE improvement. I think we are now done with half-Freehand, half-Illustrator workflow here.
Have not done the MaPublisher upgrade, and that will have to wait until I get back from vacation. Looking forward though!
