You've been very good to us over the years and we don't want you to think we're ungrateful, but we're kinda wondering if you've heard of the 80/20 rule?
The 80/20 rule can be looked at from many perspectives but essentially boils down to the notion that it takes 80% of the effort to finish the last 20% of the job.
And well, not sure how to put this so I'll just spit it out - seems to us there's a big fat 20% still on the table.
Here's a quick wish list. We'd really appreciate it if you'd do something about the following:
- Finish what you started with the new, better text handling. Static text is so clean and sharp and beautiful but why does dynamic text have to suffer so?
- Now that you and Photoshop and Illustrator are family, can you agree to use the same keyboard shortcuts - please?
- A better de-bugger would be nice - one that finds simple errors like referencing undefined variables because you've got fat fingers and hit two keys when typing.
- I wish you would make me breakfast every morning.
We can probably live without the last one if you can do something about the others.
