Customer Reviews

Good enough for former Canvas users, but specs are wrong

This app is advertised as being compatible with Mavericks. It is not. That said, I had kept an old copy of Snow Leopard around to run Canvas 9 under Rosetta which was very crash prone. This version of Canvas Draw will open all of my old Canvas docs. The functionality for some technical drawing has been surpassed by Sketchup for me, but it’s still fun to play around with. I’d say that users of Canvas from the old days would benefit, though frankly it’s a bit overpriced for the functionality.
