I guess my needs were never high enough to tax the program, so I never
really experienced any problems, even through well over a decade of
use. Typography, book design, nothing elaborate. At any rate, it
certainly paid for itself.
I don't use it anymore except for occasional testing of font metrics;
it's a simple program that functions well at a simple level. And can
be trusted in this regard. I assume you are correct though, that if
expectations are too high, it might present problems.
I use InDesign now for most such similar work, and my expectations
aren't very elaborate in that regard either. Being a typographer is a
simple life. I guess that is why I like it.
