good app some layout problems
Xpressive is a good app for webdesign that relies heavily on the DOM structure of a page. If you are comfortable designing from the DOM up, you’ll probably like this software. There are, however, some odd layout quirks in the editor. For example, I see scroll bars that obscure some of the information in the editor. These sorts of layout oversights make the app appear underpolished.
terrible directions / instructions
Software has very incomplete video tutorials that are narrated by a guy with creepy voice backed by annoying music.
I’ve used a ton of software and pick up most very quickly. Wasted an hour screwing around with this and finally quit. Never got it to work. Purchased it to SAVE time, but I finally gave up and went back to the old way of editing. Wish I could get my money back…
Don’t waste your time of money on this one. This is the first bad review I’ve ever given.
