I always buy a perpetual licence for all my software so don't upgrade at the drop of a hat unless I see some real benefits. My previous upgrade was from FM8 to 2017 which resulted in some really significant gains.
I am a self-employed freelancer and only use Unstructured FM. There's no group access, file sharing, or content management systems to take into consideration, and little likelihood of ever using 'Structured' content.
I keep receiving upgrade information from Adobe, but looking at the 'new' features in 2019 I can't immediately see anything that's going to improve my working methods greatly beyond those I currently enjoy using 2017, so I was wondering if I've missed or overlooked something.
Any comments as to how 2019 is going to set the world alight in my given circumstances would be most welcome.
I think the upgrade is worth it for the faster/better PDF output. I used to have to leave and come back later—now the PDFs are generated very quickly and much improved PDF output controls. It's been a huge timesaver for me.
