Hard for me as a Skitch user from it's beginnings not to compare 2.x with 1.x, and find it wanting. I didn't want to relearn to use it. I didn't want to sign up with Evernote. I miss the Skitch history, the contents of which won't fit into an Evernote account. Much of the functionality and interface elements I most valued are changed or gone.
Wow. I was generous. This thing is buggy and can hang or crash. It could take ages to sort out my old 1.x skitch images with this junk!
What gives?! The download link gives me 2.2.7, and I've owned 2.3.0 for ages. Nothing on the web site about 2.4.2 even when I log in. 2.3.0 has some pretty serioius bugs but I have to buy again to get 2.4.2, or what?
Camino seems to get totally bogged down and not do anything if I try to use Google Maps "Street View".
Having had the chance to actually use the software fairly extensively, I can actually rate it at last. Fontlab Studio's complexity and breadth are amazing. The UI could definitely be made easier to use and in some cases is quite bewildering. It's loaded with redundancies in ways of doing the same thing and customization, though I hesitate to call that bad (if they all worked properly). However, under 10.6.8 on my Mac Pro at least, it is absolutely riddled with peculiar behaviors and bugs which have to be negotiated like a minefield. There are also too many circumstances when instead of reporting an error of some kind, it simply crashes. More than about 3 seconds of the pinwheel and I know it's going bye-bye. Fortunately the app starts up quickly and saves rapidly, as well as saving a backup and having an autosave. The manual has a horrendous amount of material to cover and doesn't do it in a very comprehensible way. So, high marks for features and capabilities, but so-so to lousy everywhere else. It would certainly be nice if Fontlab could provide a timetable for the release of version 6 which would narrow it down to a particular year, at least. I'd like to know if I'll still be young enough to use it so I know whether to start saving now.
Personally I think this new version numbering/release schedule bit is stupid. Anyway, I loaded up Firefox 10.0.2 and it has forgotten all 20 or so tabs I had open in the previous session with 9.0.x. )8^H
Workspaces malfunction. Tools and Paint keep disappearing so I have to keep clicking on my workspace or picking them in the menu to get them back. If I click the green window maximizer in OS X, then the windows subsequently act as if there is a second toolbar at the top whether there is or not, so no windows can be moved up. Toolbars can be added but only in the third and lower position. Open windows are forced down. Restarting the application does not correct the problem. Only resetting the app to factory workspace setting restores function. OS 10.6.8
My ripper of choice until recently. Lately many ISO rips turn out unplayable junk. I actually see what looks like encrypted data in the preview as it's attempting the rip.
Infrequently when I bring up the menu, "Finder" will be the only thing at the bottom, after which I get approximately 2 seconds of pinwheel, and Finder crashes. 8^/ (Mac Pro, 10.6.8)
Version 1.3.x has addressed NONE of the issues encountered in earlier versions regarding problems with erroneous changing of spaces when dragging tabs from windows, the bizarre way windows display in multiple steps on startup or relaunch, the too frequent crashes, etc. I'd like to like it.

If it were 649 Yuan it would be a deal!
