    I actually work with Freehand, but everything seems to work just like illustrator, so I will ask in here.

    I was wondering, can one buy Strokes? or download Strokes? where do I find more, or do I have to make them myself? If that is the case how do one do that?

    Thanks in advance!
    Peace, Mike

    That was my point exactly, thank you for having more patience than me. I got sidetracked after the first couple crappy results. LOL

    I will definitely use some of those.

    Thanks again MA

    Always glad to help - I love Google, and I often find things that are useful for myself while looking for stuff for other people. That's serendipity for you!

    Actually, Freehand is a legacy program, from before Illustrator and Photoshop. Strokes are what was used in that program, and later evolved into brushes for these later programs. They are not the same as brushes, and brushes made for these later programs will not always work with Freehand.

    I could also say you wasted your time answering a question about something you didn't know about and giving poor if not misleading information. But I won't - wouldn't want to hurt a youngster's feelings.

    OR

    i could feel like that he may have been wanting to possibly use Illustrator since he said everything is like it and give him some useful areas to get brushes for Illustrator in that process for when he makes the move instead of using Freedhand. And for the record, i try not to give poor or misleading information. Now stupid information is a different topic

    Thanks to everyone,

    Yes, freehand is a little old (9 yrs) but it does everything I need at the moment, so I am not planning on giving Adobe/Macromedia any more of my money, I paid $700 for studio MX, and damned IM getting my money's worth!!! LOL

    MA is right, in freehand they are called strokes, the "Brush" is one of the strokes.

    I have found a few that fit my needs, but right now im looking into creating my own strokes, as I have not found the exact thing I need.
    Peace, Mike
