Well, I know I have said similar things before, but one last time:
I highly suggest you download and install the V8 Evaluation version NOW and start using it - so that you will be able to decide before the end of February, when the special promotional upgrade price expires, if the investment is going to be worth it to you.
I wouldn’t expect V8 to fix all of your complaints, as it’s building on V7 and moving forward - not backwards in the direction of V5. You’ll need time to get used to V8’s look and way of doing things and to figure out how to best adapt it to suit your needs. However, you will also need to adapt your expectations to what is now possible (or not). 90 days is a relatively short time to do this.
If you end up buying V8 without doing the above, like V7 you are likely to find that it’s just another
I have a project that I am touching the finishing tape on, and the wind is blowing and the tape moving about on me ! new data means another few days redrawing, just when I thought I had finished.
if I get and evaluate V8 now, 3 months work is lost, I wont be starting up on it again. has to get finished NOW.
and something called Christmas is about to happen, so I either I dont have a Christmas, or I get this fast becoming nightmare project finished, so I will try V8 after Christmas.
Excited, but dreading a lot more lost time setting it up as was V7 to have problems with V5 files and vanishing dims as well as basic stuff like line quality lost.
I must have it retain basic good aspects.
any video links to what V8 looks like and whats better and whats fixed would be welcome.
