    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    It's not like Adobe isn't drowning in cash but somehow UI/UX is going to the dogs for the last few years. I used to use four Adobe products every day but now doing other things and using infrequently. It's amazing how many bugs and broken tools (very old tools too) it has on Mac. The historical fact of Adobe pushing users towards PC where they had advantages over Apple has come home to roost. Adobe don't respect Mac users. Offshoring all the coding for the last decade has had pretty bad consequences too IMHO. I've spoken to developers about vision critical bugs that they know about but can't track the source of. It's a cluster-suck of jumping from one error and bug loaded release to the next. I have to run Betas just to get something that works on Mac. It should be the opposite. I should be able to regress one versions and still keep working if need be but stuff is so out of date with Apples modern APIs that it just brakes when you update macOS (which Apple makes you do as a matter of course any time you ring them with problems).

    I'm seriously thinking about the alternative, even though my professional use of the suite is now much more limited. The competitors in many ways are feature compatible and performance superior to Adobe. Adobe was always too conservative and profit driven (destroying, sorry acquiring, Macromedia for that purpose) but now even the good aspects of a conservative approach i.e. stable consistently performant software is now not even something we can bank on.

    My sister worked at Kodak in the digital division when they invented the digital camera and were market number one in consumer class digital cameras in several regions like Asia/Pacific. But the greed had corrupted the higher executive levels and they thought the rivers of gold from printing photos and selling film would continue to flow for decades more, it caught them out and we all know the rest of the story.

    Adobe executives would do well to read Willy Sih's books and papers especially this one: (He lead the digital division), https://www.researchgate.net/publication/308670106_The_real_lessons_from_Kodak's_decline

    I like to work in native size (mm) on large, custom design projects. Let me use it like a CAD, any size I want, it's all just numbers to the rendering engine, what's the hold up?

    Adobe QA is going to the dogs. I waste so much time having to run Beta versions for broken tools that have worked for 25 years but get broken on macOS after the latest release. Really elementary stuff.

    I agree with template. This is just FU weird Adobe.

    Also there's an associated bug.

    when you change the document's unit of measure from metres to millimetres by right-clicking in the ruler, this change is not reflected in the info Window. Even if we close the info window and open it again. (macOS Ventura AI v2023)
