   ...Altsys also developed FreeHand (originally called Masterpiece) as a Macintosh Postscript-based illustration program that used Bezier curves for drawing and was similar to Adobe Illustrator. FreeHand was announced as '...a Macintosh graphics program described as having all the features of Adobe’s Illustrator plus drawing tools such as those in Mac Paint and Mac Draft and special effects similar to those in Cricket Draw.' Seattle’s Aldus Corporation acquired a licensing agreement with Altsys to release FreeHand along with their flagship product, PageMaker, and Aldus FreeHand 1.0 was released in 1988. FreeHand’s product name used intercaps; the F and H were capitalized.
