Worst Support EVER!! For both Graphic Design Studio and Logo Design Studio Pro, you can't update the programs because you'll get the following error:

Update Error!
An error occurred in retrieving update information; are you connected to the internet? Please try again later.

Even though I am properly connected to the Internet as you can very well see since I am entering this review.

Then, when you attempt to open a ticket, you get the following error after spending the time entering in the Update problem above:

We encountered a problem (cross-site request forgery detected); please try again

Thus you cannot get any support at all....

If MU would allow ZERO stars, I rate this software a BIG ZERO.

After some training, I was able to create my design, even though the functionality of the software is not impressive. Trouble started when I wanted to print what I had done. I realized I had picked the wrong paper size when I started the project and the printer dialog does not allow me to scale to the paper size. I've tried to change the size of the document, but this does not scale down the content. Scaling down the content does not work, because while it also scales down the background which doesn't make sense, it doesn't scale down the imported vector image (from a PDF). So I thought I could export it to save my work somehow - exporting to SVG creates a document with an error and a PNG that can't be opened. Exporting to EPS ruins all text and the vector images becomes a low resolution pixel image. I also had a lockup when I tried to export once. I'm sorry to say, but this software is far from being releasable.

That's a comment, not a review. Your post provides zero useful information about the features, ease of use, stability, or value of the software. You're free to comment all you want, but if you're going to do a review, then do a review.

Why is Mac Update Promo advertising that this program is 50% off at $19.99 when it is currently available on the app store for $2.99? The exact same version 2.1.000

I have replied to similar comments on the product page; the MAS version (although the version number is the same apparently) is an older "lite" version. The one MacUpdate is promoting is our retail version that we just updated a couple weeks ago, and includes Lion support, several bug fixes, a lot more royalty free content and pre-designed graphics and more.
