Why is Photoshop so fucking unintuitive?


#22

InDesign is great


#23

steady there. but it is better than the others


#24

I’m not sure you can really compare them though – they all do different things. Typesetting in Photoshop is a nightmare, but it’s not really designed for that.


#25

Wait until you have loads of hundreds of tiny graphics boxes and it decides to shift constantly to the brown box, when you are in fact moving and grouping the blue boxes.


#26

you can go by overall ease of use.


#27

as i say anything vs quark gets my vote


#28

Or you have text that is being live edited by someone else in the stupid text editor they provide, and it’s supposed to automatically update the InDesign file, but it in fact doesn’t, or does and completely fucks up the formatting.


#29

can do you a balloon if you want

arrows are still a bit beyond me though


#30

Oh, definitely. I don’t miss using Quark at all.


#31

I use it every day, and do find myself swearing at it a lot, but I’m pretty sure most of the time it’s me who’s caused the problems to happen and not the software itself?


#32

classic bunch of design banter, guys


#33

It’s ok, you don’t have to blame yourself, whatever Adobe says.
