- Colorized 1-bit TIFF images can now be set to overprint correctly.
- The overprint attribute is now retained for gradients when the object stack contains an object painted with process white.
- Partially selected anchor points now can be moved by double-clicking the direct select tool.
- Save As PDF is improved to ensure compatibility with Acrobat(R) 4.0.
- The Avenza MAPublisher 3.0 plug-in is supported.
