I am glad to hear I'm not the only one. I feel like my projects are taking twice as long because I spend more time wrestling with the program than I do creating content (auto-resizing callout text WTF?!). I think I'm going to go back to C8 as well.
Tell me about it Keith I have requested a refund and they are processing it, 9.0 is a piece of shit compared to 8.7, at least in the user interface area, the stability seems much better. But I am sticking with 8.6 for now until they revert back to the old UI or I find another brand of software to use.
I'm keeping both, hoping 9 will stabilize. I like the behaviors and hope a color refresh will occur. Seems some of the many problems are being corrected. Half my team uses 8; half 9. 8 doesn't crash, 9 does. Sigh.
