Sure hope it's MUCH BETTER than 2019 (Update 3)!
This will be fun. Let's bet on the number of bugs found by 3/13/2020!
I use CorelDRAW everyday and yes there are sometimes a bug BUT I also use AutoCAD and there are times when it freezes and crashes.
Everyone else in my office have Macs and I hear about the Illustrator going for a dive, AND for large projects forget it!! They must work with a scale while I work FULL scale.
So what are the alternatives? None, and don't even mention that Affinity Designer, I gave it the good ol' college try and finally gave up...useless for me.
Maybe do what I do, learn to save often and get on with it. :)
I agree for large signs there are no alternatives
