I own both the Mac & Win versions. I've stopped using it on my Mac and replaced it with CSSEdit as its more streamlined than SM. SM 5 does have some nice tools but the layout is still nowhere as nice as CSSEdit as I dislike the floating properties editor. (I wish it was integrated into the program like it is in the win version.) One good thing about WestCiv is their customer support is really good -very friendly and quick response time.

Nice idea but appalling app. Crash crash crash crash crash, on both G4 & G5 systems. You shouldn't have to pay for beta testing (early beta at that) this sort of nonsense.

The idea is still good, but perhaps by v5 it may actually work.

I downloaded the demo of version 4.0. I have to say that Style Master was a big help to me in terms of learning CSS, but I encountered numerous unexplained crashes along the way. These have been so frequent that on my current project I used it only initially and have moved to other apps.


In OS X Panther, Style Master failed to draw any text in the popup alert windows for the various browser checks. In Tiger, that feature seems to be working. However, the preview refresh, which was relatively smooth in Panther, is very choppy in Tiger. It sometimes fails to refresh, most of the time the app just crashes. Maybe 4.0.2 addresses some of that.

I agree with a previous post about the app's lack of speed. However, another app I tried (Tag) was even more infuriating in this regard--if auto complete is on, the app can't keep up with your typing.

I've heard good things about TextMate and SKEdit. Since I now do most of my coding by hand, I'm going to give each of those a try. I also looked at CSS Edit and gave it a spin, but I don't like the fact that you have to manually drag your html file onto a window pane. There should be a menu command or clickable icon that lets you do this. It's very inconvenient. Another app, WebDesign, has a more robust feature set and there appears to be a lot to like about it, but I haven't used it enough to give an honest up-or-down rating.

Why is it so slow?

G4 with Gig of RAM and it takes forever.

I'll stick with CSSEdit from MacRabbit.

Agreed. It's a great app, but slow as molasses.

Pleas ignore my last post. I did finally get help from the developer and can now use Style Master. Apparantly, they were away so didn't get any email for that time.

I purchased this product and have YET to get to use it! Once you buy it, you get a username and password to download the full version. This did not work. i have sent 7 emails to ask for help to get the software that I PURCHASED. I have not gotten ANY response and so I have now wasted 60.00. The software may be good, but you may lose 60.00. Buyer beware. This is the absolute WORST support that I have encountered...ever.

Excellent.

The latest version of this little app has helped me no end. The CSS documentation that comes with it is a bonus too.

I find it creates a very simple way for me to tidy up my CSS after a mad handcoding session.

The preview functions are very good, and do help a great deal.

It is quite expensive, but they have very good upgrading deals (free from 3.5 I think), and it is a worthy upgrade.

This version is much more 'Mac like' too.

The application is especially useful when combined with the tutorial information. My biggest complaint is with the entry bugs. The interface in the wizard fails to work much of the time; I lost the ability to use my cursor control keys as well as numerical entry on many of the fields. If the bugs could be taken out, this would be a near perfect app.

This is really cool. For about a 10th of the price Stylemaster pretty much does what Dreamweaver does, only better. Well worth the money and such a step up from previous versions. I particularly like the cool color picker and the wizards.
