I am sooooo happy!!! After 20+ years as an Adobe Illustrator user LOVE that we are finally getting LAYERS…this wins over everything else with me!


They should hire you to do their social live reporting @deb - THIS is way better than anything I saw online as they were rolling things out. :clap:

MY favorite was how they’ve integrated Magic Write into ALL the formats - yay!
