Pure evil [not happy about subscription]

Who besides me is sick of Adobe with their move to the cloud to jack up prices and continuing to make it harder to just use their tools with elaborate sign-ins (to protect their fees), weak support and a poor GUI.

Unfortunately, Adobe is the defacto standard and 800 npound gorilla. When you're in this position, you need to play by another set of rules. Microsoft is falling into this same alluring profit grab.

They didn't move to the Cloud. Just added Cloud to the product name to make it sound cooler.

Well John T Smith, your answer to davido35538265 is probably the most arrogant, disinterested comment I've seen on this forum.

Now on to my problem.

Two days ago I filled out a survey and after I completed it I was offered a considerable discount on my plan cost. A bit more than $20 per month reduction.

When I tried to progress this I was told this was only available for new subscibers.

 

John T, I have been using most Adobe products since 2010. Photoshop from 1998. InDesign since version 1. Illustrator since 1998. And so it goes. My point is that our loyalty to Adobe could occasionally be rewarded.

Such an opportunity occured two days ago.

And before you offer me similar advice to davido35538265 just think about how many other people, including me, are indeed researching alternatives.

I have posted over 80 thousand times, most of those are to try and help someone who says "I have problem X with program Y" or similar

 

When someone comes here to vent and complain, I will reply in kind... if you don't like Adobe programs, and you aren't asking for help with a program, be my guest to find software that you do like

 

Nobody here in a public form... including me... sets Adobe's sales policies, so nobody here can tell Adobe to offer bargains to existing user
