Simple to do Complicated Things

I was looking for a quick-and-dirty replacement for Microsoft Publisher when I didn’t want to crack open the Adobe suite. Turns out, I use this pretty much exclusively for page design/layout/flyers/etc. Simple to use even when you want to do complicated things. I don’t have a lot of time so I like to maximize my bang for the buck. This does that. Kudos.

Teacher School Awesome!

So thankful I took a chance on this app!! I’m a former PC Printshop user who recently bought a Mac and was finding it challenging to locate a publisher type program compatible with my new Apple software. Wow, this program was a breeze to nagivate and I’ve already designed my first project for my Kindergarten class!

What a pile of …. Poo

Was worried about the software, since most support is old.So i did half a morning doing research. Videos look good reminding me of Pagemaker.
First thing out of the "box", it crashed within a minute.
Second thing, it will not link an image to a web page.
Third thing, even the very old text linking system does not work - I can not link to my site.
Fourth thing, supplot is slow if non-existant.
Fifth thing, the only support you willl get are 5 or 6 very general short videos.
Sixth thing, I doubt they used their own software to make their own manual, since it uses anchor linking.

What a shameful wast of $20 and I really wanted this to work ….
