The version on the developer's web site appears to be a standard demo that you unlock with a paid license, but the version in the MAS is currently free, so is that only a demo?

The speed of this app plus the creep control and other little binding features makes this a desirable bit of offset press software for the professional and the price is excellent.

I realize this is version 1.0 of this product, and perhaps the developer doesn't really know their audience... but people who would download this Demo are usually professionals in a printing setting who, before shelling out almost 400 bucks on a product, want to be sure it's going to do what they want it to do. Now I know they are trying to keep their best interests in mind, so I understand the reasoning behind the 30 day Demo... but to also CRIPPLE the software during the Demo period so potential buyers are limited to one 4up spread is ludicrous. Keep this in mind when you download, and Devalipi? Please reconsider this crippled demo and give us a real look at what your product can do?

Hmmm, this sounds interesting - I'll give the demo a try. OT: I think the dev's very brave using the logo that they do - can't imagine Adobe being too thrilled with it.
