    I'm really liking it so far. Seems pretty quick and stable and the interface and shortcuts are very familiar (the kerning keyboard shortcuts are the same as CS). I love the split view where one side is normal and the other side is the pixel preview.

    Some things I can't figure out or if it's possible: can we use px as values for line-widths for objects? It seems to only accept pt (where .75pt = 1px at 96dpi). I also can't figure out how to get borders and lines to snap to the pixel grid unless I type in half pixels.

    For $40 this is a steal. Even at $50 this is pretty great.
