For Heaven's sake why do you exhume these defunct applications every now and then and don't allow them to rest in peace?!!! TypeStyler was a great application and I extensively used it for many years before it definitely passed away. Now once again we have it here as a resurrected application. True that it's now possible to launch it but it's full of bugs and keeps crashing. It's clearly an abandonware. No more zombies please! Fariborz AMIRSHAHI (Verona - Italy)

Apparently out of business as they no longer answer their emails. Too bad as it WAS a great program.

I think it's time to recognize that TypeStyler has evolved into a very useful application at a very reasonable price. The last couple of updates have really made TypeStyler into a a great text styling tool. Kudos to the developers for taking a languishing product and breathing new life into it and for making it available at a decent price!

All is OK with the world, the sun will rise tomorrow, the developer has seen the light... I am now happy! This is now available on the Mac App Store for £39.99. Given the price of BeLight's Art Text, this is now a really good buy!

No Doubt There will be a 'Lion version coming soon', and when it arrives in seven or eight years time, will cost around $499!!!

What planet is this developer on?, back in OS9 days, this was my first choice when producing posters, flyers etc. and like many more, was constantly looking for the expected update with the advent of OSX, but all we got was 'OSX version coming soon'. I don't know whether the dev. has had some sort of a problem that has kept him out of circulation for the last ten years, but to finally release this, almost a carbon copy of the original OS9 version and want $199 for it is nothing short of lunacy! Dream on, Mr Dev., Dream on!!!

TypeStyler always has taken me a while to figure out how to use it, but it has more tricks than anything else in its class. It may be quirky and the developer sure waited a looong time to release the OS X version, but I'l very happy that it is available again and happy that the developer continues to tweak it.

...and another vote for fifty dollars. SS abandoned its loyal user base years ago when it didn't upgrade TS to OSX. Give us a reasonably priced upgrade and our praise (hopefully it'll be worthy enough) will help you sell it to new users.

$200. I don't think so. I'm the same as many other users. I've moved on. Make it $50 and you've got me.

I am going to DITTO the pricing comments. I owned at least 2 licenses at one time, and don't even know what happened to discs and so-on, as I thought this a dead app. I ALWAYS support companies who make an effort to support the Mac community. TypeStyler was a great 'quicky' graphics tool. However, when development drops off the face of the earth (for years) you have to earn back the faith of your clients if you want their money. I add my 'thumbs up' for a MU Promo offering something like a $25.00 upgrades and/or $50.00 one-time/72 hour deal. This might tempt me back 'into the fold.' You'd be better off running regular updates and pulling in revenue from that approach, with a 10x client base, than overcharging a few desperate folks. Also, I'd like to see a modern GUI (not to mention speed increases) that would demonstrate (to me) a solid commitment to on-going development. Welcome back . . . now roll up those sleeves, and get to work. : )

Maybe I'm getting old but I get really ticked off at developers who offer a product and then upgrade it over and over in a matter of weeks. Since TypeStyler was reintroduced in October this is the 2nd or 3rd revision. How about testing it and then releasing it and not the other way around. We do logos and stylized text on a weekly basis. Art Text does a great job for the fast, simpler jobs. Anything really complex we are doing in Illustrator or Photoshop. We have the old TypeStyler and it was cool for its day but a little gaudy today with the heavy fonts and outlines. When they get all the revisions out of the way we will check out the demo, but I run a business and have to justify my prices against the competition. I'm afraid Strider didn't do much market research before setting their prices.

As a longtime user of Typestyler in its earlier OS9 version, I cannot see what would bring me to buy this new (?) version for $200. C'mon Strider make it affordable, the US economy cannot afford to bail everyone out.

Old-time Typestyler user. Find this new version fraught with former negatives: e.g. ugly, painfully slow. Nevertheless, when it's around, its versatility and production are peerless. I might pay the hefty upgrade price were I confident that my investment wouldn't be useless of OS 10.6.6, for instance, because the program has gone to ground again. Furthermore, old features are implemented in new ways in this version - as are, I suspect, some new features - but the manual isn't available yet. So Typestyler needs documentation and somehow, after all its lumpy history, an established (better) track record. She's still a beautiful dame, but she's dumped me too often. Time will tell if I'm smitten enough to welcome her back eventually this time - or if, as I can only hope, she's changed...

Nearly a whopping $200 for a type styling program????? I could see this at $49, but for this much cash, it must do something I might be missing.

I totally agree with sleepless. Absolutely great software, outdated and unpolished ui. Introductory discount $49.95 from full retail $99.00 and your price will be in right range. You've worked hard at getting this to this stage of development. I'm in my 50's and have been using Typestyler forever, so I'm thinking the developer must be around my age or more. You price this thing right and you can hire all the programmers you need to keep it modern, sell it off to someone later and retire in style. It shouldn't have taken this long to get this out the door. You have a lot of ground to make up. Just do it!

I've been a Typestyler user for a long time. Like most everyone, I thought this was dead software. I am so thrilled to have this powerful and friendly tool back in my graphics arsenal. Try this in any other program: Bend some type into a neat arch, apply a wood shader effect, then choose Break Apart Text from the Object menu. Now export as Photoshop layers and check out the results in Photoshop. Amazing! Arttext is not bad software but it is a toy compared to Typestyler. This new version is the most powerful type manipulation program I have ever seen. My only complaint is that it took so long but now that I have it, I love it.

Tried the demo and it's great! YES it's about the same as it was in OS9, but alway's loved it and if they make big bucks, maybe it's interface will improve and features expand. This is how they can make big bucks. I wrote to Strider as suggested TWICE! that they offer TypeStyler for $49.00 for 24 hour (or a few days or a week) and after that... $99.00. Refund all those who spent $199 or $99 for upgrade. PLEASE OFFER TYPESTYLER FOR $49.99 AS A MACPROMO NOW! RUN FOR 24/48 or 72 HOURS. You will sell tens of thousands if you pre-promote (let the blogs and mags be aware a few days pre offering on MACPROMO. WE ALL WILL BUY! OS9 looking and all because it's a GREAT, FUN and WORTHY DTP APP! Start a Revolution! TYPESTYLER for $49.99 on MACPROMO. LET THEM KNOW: For customer service please email sales@typestyler.com

After demoing this "new" version I can say with complete confidence that this does not look, act, or feel like a modern Mac Program. It feels and functions like a "leftover" from OS 9 which, after a little research, it appears that it is. I find it hard to believe that the developer could justify the price tag he's put on this semi-restored relic when Art Text 2 is 1/5 the price, has much of the functionality and is elegantly designed for OS X. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer that my software is updated more than once every ten years...then again, maybe P.T. Barnum was right.

Much too expensive for upgrade price. Your loyal customers who've waited almost a decade (yes, if you can believe that!) deserve to get a bigger price break that $99! Even if you make the price an introductory price for a limited time period, it should only be 30 or 40 dollars for a previous customer to upgrade. I'd love to continue to use this, but frankly, it's taken so long that I've moved on and I'm not willing to come back unless the price is more palatable, which $99 is not. What's to let me know that your even going to be around for the next update? Who's to say that you get my $99 upgrade and then disappear for another 9 years?

Long long ago....we have used this program. It was in the past a pritty good program and what we see now its amazing good. But the video optie is not right good with export to its stuttering. Maybe the next update can handle this failure video output. The prise is good if all works right...

Halloween is the PERFECT time to bring THIS back from the dead ... I'm not sure how they'll justify the huge price increase but I'll withhold judgement till I've tried it myself. Suffice to say this will have to be pretty bloody amazing for $200. Now I'm half-expecting a Mac version of Duke Nukem Forever to pop up ...
