Slow, confusing commands, could be a step over ViewIt 2.36 (too bad given up and lacking of some developing). Does not follow Mac specs, shortcuts don't happen, all on menu bar only, poor diashow implement, no bulk selection, no reliable renaming, no K4 support, slowing system down ... :-(

I can't figure out how to use it. I am just on the free trial and I am not about to buy something that gives me no clue how to use the damned thing..
