The entire Adobe suite is programmed by NON-artists who apparently haven't touched their own product in decades. I've been using Photoshop since the late 90s and I can't remember the last time any new feature was added to the product that was practical. The best product they make is Audition. Illustrator is clunky, cumbersome, and out of sync with Photoshop paradigms. Time for someone with some guts to be CTO and fix this utter vomit splatter.

The worst update ever, I'll rather use CS3 than this crap. And the worst part - its file is not compatible with older versions. My studio is on pause because of it. Loosing around 50k a day because of this update.

Not good at all. Bloated beta crapware. I hate it. Buy Affinity Designer. And yes, we pay for CC.

Leaving aside the whole issue of OS compatibility and cloud subscription (of which Im not a fan), the new version absolutely screams. It took Adobe years to add GPU acceleration to Illustrator after Photoshop got it back in CS6. If you are working on large multi layered art, this is a solid upgrade.

So, after 15 years of my requesting it (along with other people) Adobe finally increased the zoom percentage to a decent amount. Thanks Adobe, but I already found something better.

Whilst I still use Illustrator CS6, because I am very familiar with it, the subscription model and sense of 3 decades of frustrations with a bloated UI means I am moving on to Sketch and the new boy Affinity Designer which looks really REALLY hot: https://affinity.serif.com/beta-download/ Adobe's problems are that whilst it has the mature software. that works with difficulties, they have never sat down and rethought how they should work. Just bolted on ever more feature requests to the point you can never find anything. A lot of the Adobe features i want don't work. e.g. Batch processing won't do the very things I want it to do, such as colour mode and auto save to format of my choice. It can just be a massive waste of time. I want my timer back thank you. Don't even bother going to the Indesign User Groups any more because it feels like a time warp.

I’m not quite sure why this update took so long to show up on MacUpdate because CC 2014 was released a couple of months ago. Regardless, if you have a Creative Cloud subscription you start to look at Adobe updates in a new light. Updates just happen, whenever, and you never have to worry about ordering a new version of the Creative Suite since the updates are automatic and immediately available for downloading. Sometimes there aren’t a lot of obvious changes between a new version and the version that preceded it, such as between Illustrator CC 2014 and original CC. If anything, some noticeable “improvements” aren’t: a login screen that never goes away unless you can find a way to turn it off (rather than being in interface preferences, the on/off switch for this feature is hidden) and TypeKit integration which is both annoying and confusing. But if you’re a professional, Creative Cloud apps such as Illustrator are essential and the integration between Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign is unmatched. (Who even is Adobe’s competition? Microsoft? Corel? Quark? I don’t think so.) InDesign imports raw AI and PSD files; AI can open and edit PDF files saved by Photoshop and InDesign. Illustrator files can be copied and pasted into Photoshop and remain live and editable. The list of features is endless. And over time, they keep getting better.

Great "professional" illustration software. Most of my logo and other illustrations are made through this software. I know there are alternatives but they are not even as feature rich and customisation through add ons. Clearly this is for my work that's why i'm fine with Creative Cloud payment scheme. Anyway you get a lot from the service. Hobbyists or other value seekers should try the alternatives because this is not for you.
