everyone has these moments-especially when you are self-taught. the short description is like this. imagine you are a carpenter, and you have been drilling screws with the blunt side of a knife for your entire career, and then, by chance, someone shows you an electric drill. and you realize the buckets, if not mountains of hours you have spent doing something the HARDEST WAY POSSIBLE-for no reason. savor the moment.
i had one of these today with illustrator, and i am pretty much dumbstruck by how easy my life could have been for oh...the past 5 years...f*ing envelope distort tool.
