Customer Reviews

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.

HTML editor that doesn’t really edit

okay so you get alot of peole buying this software. All I want to do is edit an existing HTML file that I have been working on. well you can’t. You have to do some giggery pokery to place your files in the “new Project” why cant i just open the html file
