Please be aware that as of CanvasDraw 6, the software can ONLY be purchased by subscription. Between that and their user hostile one seat only licensing scheme (where you have to go through an annoying deregistration/registration procedure when changing from home use to work use and vice-versa) I'm moving to different software. I used to really love this software too, sigh. MacUpdate - can you please amend the $249 price tag shown to reflect that this is now subscription based.

I like the updated program, tried it, saw $90 and was ready to purchase, when I discovered it's a subscription price. No thanks. Five stars for the program but only one star because of the pricing. Probably go with Affinity Designer.

I have used Canvas professionally for over 30 years. It is generally superior to any other software of its kind. It has intuitive drawing tools that speed the process, the easy to use combination of vector, photo and text files without the expense of anything comparable. Canvas also has more extensive import-export files than most.

Purchased Canvas Draw version 5. Very disappointing. All imported objects lose their names. So, there is no way to trace back to original files (imported images, tables figures). I have contacted their service which was not helpful, and had no interest to implement this important function. Currently using and old mac still ruining old CanvasX and looking for alternatives - other than Canvas. It's a pity, I loved the program.

Canvas Draw 6.0 (yes there is a 6.0 version now MacUpdate), decided to upgrade to it from 2 after Canvas Draw 2 would have fairly frequent launch failures in its new Mojave digs. A bit of an issue getting it to take my registration key (had to invoke customer support), but ironed it out fairly quickly enough once we went the offline registration route (with his help). Now I'm up to date for the time being and no more startup crashes (knock on wood). Upgrade price was a bit steep ($99), but at least I could skip several versions and still get the somewhat friendlier price.

The new pricing model of Canvas 4 is a joke - no really new function but a yearly maintenance price and usable only on one Mac. The GUI is old fashion, it's only in english available - Affinity Designer has a much better value. It's really very disappointing because I used it since the day it come from deneba

Too late for a party. Now much superior Affinity Designer is available and this Canvas is crippled version of Canvas X. Besides price is more than 4 times higher than Affinity! (It's not $99 but $199!) Disappointed after many years. They need more effort like Serif.

I liked Canvas in it's past life, then it was destroyed and now seems to be coming back. I'd like to buy it, but that seems impossible. Their web site refuses to accept any credit card I have (including ones I use daily). Different browsers are no help. They have an 800 number on their site, but it only drops you into voice mail telling you to leave a message and they may call you back. Basically the worst type of customer service. I have to question the company's viability if they can't even take orders.

This is pretty much the core of the former Canvas-X, and that is all some of us need. It is the only program I've found that can handle some of the postscript drawings I give it, import them without losing (or mangling) any information, and allow me to individually edit any element of the vector graphics arbitrarily. Inkscape, Gimp, and many other graphics programs have all failed this test for me.

I find it invaluable for formatting my drawings for embedding in documents.

Lucky I only registered for the trial. The program does not allow me to open a new document from the menu. In fact I have to quit and choose from the pre-set templates. It certainly doesn't allow me to open old files. I used Canvas for many years and probably won't do so again. Back to iDraw.

It is so very good to finally have Canvas back on the Mac, albeit CanvasDraw is effectively Canvas-lite. The full version of Canvas is supposedly coming later in the year. The only reason I keep a snow leopard system around is so I can run Canvas - even today I use it to create new drawings. Admittedly the fully blown Canvas program will be priced out of reach for many people, but Canvas Draw (at it's current price point) really does bring back to the Mac a drawing program "for the rest of us".

At present, it's a 1.0 release and it has several bugs and annoyances, but they'll hopefully get addressed. It has a remarkable set of features and it really has the potential to just displace everything else. If I was a budget priced drawing program developer I'd be shaking in my boots right about now...

For now, my main concern is how effectively and how often ACD Systems deal with the bugs. It would also be nice if they provided details about a subsequent to the full version when that is released.

Yes!, this is a partial remake of the much missed (at least by some) Canvas X, formerly by Deneba. It even opens the old Canvas files! Or tries to -- about half of them I try to open crash Canvas Draw. And wow does thing spam my console with useless errors and messages! In short, I'm very happy to see this back but it's very much a 1.0 release. More like a beta release really. Time will tell if they get their act together and if support is there for the Mac this time around. Many of us ex-Canvas users are hoping for good things.
