      What has happened to the filters (NOT the effects, the filters) that previously existed in Illustrator?  Why were they removed and has something been put in their place that has the same result?

          All of the previous AI Filters have a counterpart in the Effects menu. This allows for the Effects to be live and thus changable at any time. If you want to simulate the old Filter workflow, just apply the Effect and then Expand Appearance from the object menu.

            If you have any third-party filters installed, like the Phantasm plug in or something, the Filter menu will still be there, but it's in a new location. Look for it under the Object menu.

              Thanks for the information.  I have been concerned about some of the lack of information concerning Illustrator and have been afraid that this fabulous product is being abandoned.
