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?

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?

I do not believe so... I think it is a demo of sorts. I could be wrong but app watching sites have it listed as going free from $199 or something crazy right now so I think it is full version. Plus, you can't have demos like that on MAS as far as I know... sorry I couldn't help more but grab it, you might just save $200

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.

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.
