Adobe, the world's biggest maker of graphic design software, said quarterly earnings beat market forecasts.

Shares dropped in after-hours trading in New York, however, as analysts had been expecting even better figures.

The company said that demand for its Adobe Creative Suites and Adobe Acrobat products was still driving growth.

Profit in the fiscal second quarter was $109.4m (60m) compared with $64.2m a year earlier. Sales jumped to $410.1m from $320.1.
