FreeHand MX

FreeHand 10.0 didn't impress us, but things are looking up for this professional illustration application now that the latest version, called MX, is here. FreeHand MX includes a range of impressive new tools, and its capabilities range from enhanced traditional functions to cutting-edge Web features. FreeHand is equally at home with print, PDF and Flash output. However, we had to deduct points for an interface that remains awkward and is far less intuitive than that of CorelDraw 11. Adobe users should stick with Illustrator, and CorelDraw remains our overall top pick. But designers who need Macromedia MX integration will love FreeHand MX.
