I was using ADT a lot, it is really a nice combination of tools. But they silently removed Pantone support in 5.5 which was one feature that made this app stand out from others. What a shame!

I am thinking about buying it. I did figure out how to get the pantone info back in the app. Control click on the old app and navigate to Contents/Resources. Take all of the Pantone files plus SwatchLibraries.plist and copy these to the same location inside the contents of the new app and you'll have the Pantone info in it.

Thanks Ibookmaster, that did the trick! Let's hope this "hack" will continue to work in new versions.

What is the difference with version 5.2.6?

I compared the two apps side by side and they seem exactly similar to me.

Why should I pay $19,95?

I have used this program for many years and I love it. I recently had to do some design work for a CalArts/REDCAT event and it made the job that much easier. I could not say enough about this product without sounding like I own stock in the company ( which I would gladly buy if they ever go public). I have had great success with the customer support contacts and would highly recommend this to anyone in the Graphic Art Industry. Way to go Code-Line Comm. love your stuff.

The twenty dollar upgrade fee is pretty unsubstantiated. I went through the change list, and the apps side-by-side. This update should have been a 4.2 or something -Not- an entire point leap! Seems most commercial developers do not understand the philosophy of version numbers at all. Anyway.

Save your money for version 10 (4.8). Or just wait until you buy a new Mac.

It returns false RGB values on Intel iMac. Disappointing as I've used it for years on PPC

Not bad, but it's the kinda of app, while using it for 15 minutes, you keep on thinking "I wish it did this a little different" or "I wish it had this feature" or "Why didn't they do it that way?"...
The UI is slick but the feature/price ratio is not in its favor...
My personal opinion of course, they charge what they want and they don't force you to buy it...
More features and/or less $$ would do it for me, but not quite enough for me to buy/use it as this point.
