..been using it for a while now and so far, I'm not really impressed. That's not to say the new features arn't worth the money, but it's nothing I think the normal designer needs to worry about (that goes with the entire MX04 line, not just the studio package).

Well Dreamweavers CSS support is MUCH nicer. It was always too 'clunky' with CSS before

Well, I found MX to be rather buggy in display and operation. They released one fix, but it still had things that don't work properly, in my opinion.
Pay for yet another version when they left the last one unfinished? Don't think so.

yeh, now i've used it a little more though things like css support is much better, i dont like the way they changed the menu's personally, but all the features are mostly little and i think it should of been more of an upgrade package to MX for a lot cheap instead of a brand new suite.

Really greedy of them!
The menus are bad now, I don't like what they did.
While the graphics on the left are nicer, they are just tools and maybe should have been left plain.

But what they did to the windows is bad.


I got the trial version of it, and I decided to stay with MX.. (fireworks MX [6])

Here's another thought: My version of Flash (MX) has action scripting and the ability to handle and create web forms. The new "standard" ($399) upgrade package Flash version does not. For an extra $100, you can get the "pro" version, that has that added (back) in.
Nice, MM.

Interesting..I'd have sworn I read Action Scripting wasn't in both...but my MX still can do forms, where MX 2004 (regular) can't, apparently. Still seems something of a downgrade.

Thanks for the heads up.

If you're a designer, don't bother upgrading!

For developers it's a must!

I got the studio mx 02 educational version. New to dreamweaver and hope to learn how to use it soon. Do any of you recomend any software or books that will teach me how to use this software?
thanks
Joel

umbrello, the best way to learn macromedia is keep using it, its taken me a long time to get where i am but its worth it and you take in more. i also didnt have any money aswell . Its also worth learning the adobe suite e.g photoshop, imageready - i use image ready often cause of the amount you can compress an image you've created especially when designing website.The other way is to take a course or something i dont know any books may be someone else could metion about that.

mx 2004 : well i think its still majorly wrong, im a designer and a delevoper and i'd rather keep the normal mx version. of course this is my view
