Yesterday, when I came home from work, I got to play with Comic-Life, finally!! It's pretty intuitive, but I work in Adobe applications so much, that I keep instinctively reaching for Adobe key commands. Like space bar for the move tool, or command + or - for zoom. Some work, like holding option & dragging to duplicate a shape or shift to scale a shape proportionately. My biggest complaint is that it runs slow on our computer. There is much waiting for the "beach ball" to stop spinning. My non-computer savvy guess is that OS 10.4 uses more RAM than 10.2, so there is less "juice" left over for running the applications.
