Can you run Acrobat CC with FusionPro Creator 9.3? Or is InDesign the only support provided for the Creative Cloud programs?

Font handling seems to keep getting worse and worse. Is it possible to share what priority it is on the "enhancements" or "bug fixes" list?

In the release notes under Mac OSX Yosemite, it talks about support for Mavericks. So does FusionPro Creator support up to Mavericks or Yosemite?

Long time no see. A recent hardware malfunction led to an early upgrade to a device running Mavericks and with it, an immediate jump from FusionPro 8.2 to 9.3.6. During installation, i reviewed the possible current issues, mostly regarding fonts.

I am happy to report no major snafus with fonts. I am currently using FontExplorer X Pro to manage fonts and I disabled Asian character support in FP. Some fonts are being renamed from what they were called in Mtn Lion/FP 8.2 but now that the font usage dialog actually works, relinking fonts is only a chore for tags in rules. I'll keep an eye on this issue to see if other fonts require editing .ini files or submitting fonts to support.

There are a few difference in UI that are a minor annoyance though:

1) All output files are appended with a "1" even if not part of batch output.

2) Browsing for files is set to last Finder location used by FusionPro. In 8.2, browsing for a file either started in the last location accessed by the current file, or the location of the current file's input data.

3) Tabbing no longer works in FP dialog boxes. If I fill in a value in one field, I can no longer tab to the next field. I have to point-and-click in each field.

None of these are deal breakers, but they do affect my productivity. #3 is by far the most annoying as I sub-consciously tab between fields and only afterwards do I realize I've been typing all my values over top of one another. Can anyone confirm these aren't just issues on my own setup?

esmith those are all issues I've come across. 9.3.6 is much buggier than 8.x

I also have these issues:
-Imposition selection in compose window does not "stick", if after selecting a file you select another tab
-Javascript globals sometimes do not work
-2D datamatrix barcodes are broken
-Font naming for me is a major pain, almost every other font I need to edit the fonts.ini for
-And I had the error message pop up again today that has to do with rotated frames and enfocus pitstop.
-Rules with the same name as a database field sometimes are not applied instead of the db field

What is Acrobat CC? The most recent version of Adobe Acrobat is version XI (11). Acrobat XI is included with a Creative Cloud subscription, but there isn't a new CC-specific version of Acrobat like there is with InDesign.

Can you be more specific as to how it's getting worse? As for our development priorities, I'm not sure what I can tell you, other than that, if Apple would stop coming out with new versions of OS X which require changes to the program so often, we might have more time to work on other things.

You are correct . I could have swore there was a specific CC version that I used a trial version of.
