Adobe notes products with Lion-related "known issues"

Adobe posted a knowledge base article today showing a few "known issues" that their products have with OS X Lion. As the image above shows, it's really more than just a few issues -- it appears that most of the Adobe product line has one problem or another.

In each case, Adobe has done its homework on figuring out what doesn't work with Lion, and it's well documented. It's a bit disappointing, however, that the company's engineers haven't corrected these issues between the time of the first Lion developer preview and the current release.

Some of the more exciting issues revolve around a frequent offender: Flash Player. Adobe warns that "Flash Player may cause higher CPU activity when playing a YouTube video. Possibly related to disabled hardware acceleration," and that "The Flash Player settings dialog does not respond to mouse clicks. If you find yourself in this state, you can use the "tab" key to change the focus to the "Close" button and use the spacebar to close the dialog. While not all settings are available, you can also use the Flash Player native control panel located in System Preferences."

If you want the full lowdown on the open issues in Adobe's products -- and, if you're a pro graphic artist, designer, Flash animator or video editor, before you even consider upgrading to Lion -- be sure to click the knowledge base link above.
