Wow, this sounds like a complete disaster.
How are you going to allow collaboration when you literally can't predict what someone else is going to change?

How are you going to allow collaboration when you literally can't predict what someone else is going to change? This isn't a a simple excel spreadsheet (which collaboration also gets screwed up on), it's hundreds of layers with layer styles, hidden layers, different color workspaces... yikes.
Adobe is well known for all kind of disasters. Agree. To me it looks like great marketing efforts without any substance for designers.

Great news for those who need it. (Not me).

I’d much rather have all Adobe apps as Apple Silicon native (will switch my 2016 16” Pro with an Air when that happens)
