AVOID THIS APP LIKE THE PLAGUE it does a terrible job, the vector support is completely worthless. It is best suited in a kindergarten class. More concerning is because the software wasn’t functioning correctly, I requested support. Even after 25 days I never received any comments or support. Put your money somewhere else, because once these guys have it it’s gone

At the moment Macware are offering this for $15.99 ($21.62 in my currency, not including "offshore service margin" charged by my bank) but I'm afraid the reviews here have turned me off. Shame.

Like Logo Design Studio, does not work in Yosemite (upgrade or clean install). No sign of a update, very frustrating. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Worst Support EVER!! For both Graphic Design Studio and Logo Design Studio Pro, you can't update the programs because you'll get the following error: Update Error! An error occurred in retrieving update information; are you connected to the internet? Please try again later. Even though I am properly connected to the Internet as you can very well see since I am entering this review. Then, when you attempt to open a ticket, you get the following error after spending the time entering in the Update problem above: We encountered a problem (cross-site request forgery detected); please try again Thus you cannot get any support at all.... If MU would allow ZERO stars, I rate this software a BIG ZERO.

After some training, I was able to create my design, even though the functionality of the software is not impressive. Trouble started when I wanted to print what I had done. I realized I had picked the wrong paper size when I started the project and the printer dialog does not allow me to scale to the paper size. I've tried to change the size of the document, but this does not scale down the content. Scaling down the content does not work, because while it also scales down the background which doesn't make sense, it doesn't scale down the imported vector image (from a PDF). So I thought I could export it to save my work somehow - exporting to SVG creates a document with an error and a PNG that can't be opened. Exporting to EPS ruins all text and the vector images becomes a low resolution pixel image. I also had a lockup when I tried to export once. I'm sorry to say, but this software is far from being releasable.
