Excuse my esoteric thoughts here. Sometimes I need to express myself even when nobody knows what I'm talking about. But, why would anyone using Adobe Illustrator, or any vector based program, want to work in layers? I know, it's a cool little...thing. At least it was back when they first introduced them. And, they are a necessity when using Photoshop. But, in Illustrator, if you organize your illustration efficiently in the first place, by grouping elements, you'd never have to complicate your illustration experience with layers upon layers. I won't even mention the layers in Freehand — just forget about them. And now, as I just learned the hard way, you can work with layers, upon layers, within layers. And some do. I now have a headache.
I really needed to blog that. Beats talking to myself.
