    Thanks to Sally. I reviewed all the updates info plus got some info for Touch apps, which I was eager to know. Very informative quick explanations were helpful. Thanks Teresa for organizing this meeting, too.

    Thanks to Adobe for the venue-and Sally brings good energy. I brought a guest who is considering ILL CS6 and so this was a good chance to see some features. A tablet isn't on my list - there was a lot crammed in a short space, but a good overview.

    Really enjoyed Sally's warmth and knowledge. I might have missed something, but I was hoping for more of an overview of the updates in AI CS6 and then zeroing in on ooh-ahh features. It felt like this presentation was limited to interface, image trace, patterns, and stroked gradient with a nod to 64 bit speed and then moved into other Adobe software. Maybe there weren't more upgrades to point out, which makes me question how robust this AI upgrade is (64 bit power aside). Don't really get the thrill of the live font scrolling feature bc I use Suitcase which shows live type in dozens of font choices simultaneously, which I use all the time and seems so much more efficient than scrolling through one font at a time.

    I had some issues with it. Sally is a lovely, inspiring person and speaker. But I thought it was more like a party where info is shared than a lecture. I spent $10 on raffle tickets and that also was crazy; everyone should have been given promo items. As for the books and CS6, what exactly were we paying for? We should have been given raffle tickets at the door, one piece. This is not a charity. The pizza is nice but. Bowl of candy is cheap and unhealthy...how about a salad or some fruit of money is an issue? I would have preferred more interactivity and experiences shared of AI and similar apps, even apps outside of Adobe. This was supposed to be a meetup and it was more like a long commercial for Adobe. I and my two friends left disappointed. Promo items like t- shirts and cup holders should be free, not raffled off.

    I was coming from Sunnyvale and got caught in traffic but made the tail end. Enjoyed the group energy.

    Sally is a great presenter, lots of keyboard shortcuts that I didn't know about.

    Love the pattern maker...a dangerously addictive addition! Agree, having fonts visible as you test them makes a big difference. Thanks very much for your instruction.

    Want to send a special thanks to Sally. I like seeing how other people work, and how they deal with their their array of talents. Sally's very down-to-earth and clear about how she plays to her strengths. Finally, I always appreciate being fed! That's why I purchased raffle tickets, as a thank you for the food and presentation. Little did I expect that the "grand prize" would result. Thank you so much.

    Sally is lively, knowledgeable, and a hoot and a half. Everyone learned something and won something in the raffle. It was all good!

  • Sally C.

    That was fun! Thanks to the 30 or do who actually attended. Thanks also to Teresa, Terry and Brenda for the opportunity to speak. Oh, and my "Tech Zombie", Nolan.
