I used Discus for many years -it was brilliant for a lot of things. My operating system is now Big Sur so Ive had to say good bye to a good friend. However if your looking for a good equivalent app have a look at Swift publisher 5

I have used Discus v. 4.2.3 on my iMac mid 2007 for years and am about to upgrade my OS to 10.11 (El Capitan). Can I assume that Discus v. 4.2.3 will be compatible?

May I ask anyone running Discus in Fusion or Parallels if any special procedure was required? Trying to run it on a new Mac Pro, but it crashes upon launch in both applications (trial versions).

According to developer's website, they are ADAMANT that Discus will not be updated to 64-bit to run on Catalina. Actually, it's more than just a matter of simply recompiling; Discus is written using Carbon API, which dates back to 'classic' Mac System OS (remember System 9?). To support Catalina, the app would have to be totally rewritten in the modern Cocoa framework, a major undertaking which may not be supported by current revenue from sales. I still use Discus, running in a VMWare Fusion virtual machine image of macOS Mojave, and that works fine, so if you have ability to run virtual machines (Parallels or VMWare Fusion), that is an option.

I have used Discus for a long time. It is a must-have utility, as I can load Discus and make a quick sign, poster, or CD label before Photoshop has finished loading its plugins. Speed and focus are its great strengths, and although I mostly use it for my DVD backups, i do appreciate the thousands of built in paper labels it supports. Also it has a cross-platform file format, and you get both a mac and windows version on the same disc for a single price; I wish more companies did this, I hate having to buy all my adobe products twice.

I've used Discus for years and the program has a lot of features, but it still has a very un-Mac like interface which may not appeal to everyone.

I've used this program for the last 5 years.... It just keeps getting better and better. It is now a truly beautiful and fun app to work with... makes labelling a joy rather than tedium. There are so many options and ways to use your creativity and the interface makes its easy ... This is leaps and bounds ahead of any other labelling program ... Do yourself a favour and try this program out .. Worked flawlessly with my DVD printer ...

It's been a long wait but now we have the best labeling program back, and with many great new features (and they work!). Please disregard my previous comments.

The new upgraded program has finally arrived!!...and it crashes if you use the history function...and it won't allow you to reselect text...completely worthless at this point. What's happening guys? We wait for almost a year and get this?

Another beta.... I don't even recall when I did pay for the final version... Also, the scroll wheel doesn't work when choosing a template or paper. Meanwhile, I'm using Printshop 2, no problems at all, but not so complete as when Discus will be finished. Hurry up guys....

It still crashes and has so many illogical "features" that I can only say that I am disappointed and feel like I wasted my money. I say avoid this until/if it ever gets out of beta.

Well here we are in October and still in a very messed up beta version...my recommendation is to wait until the developer gets it working right and then buy it. It still is very glitchy.

I find the new Beta versions to be quite difficult to use due to constant crashes and things getting "stuck". In general, until it gets finalized, I find it quite useless. We were promised a finished product by the end of August...I'm not holding my breath. But if and when it gets finished I'm sure it will be fun to use.

Sorry - signup lost my comments. I use an Epson R1800, which I like a lot. I also much prefer Discus (3.15 at this stage) to the klunky Epson software that comes with the printer. Now that is a software that looks like a cross between an old Windows and Mac OS7. Have yet to try Discus 4. But with 3.15 with the R1800, you need to make sure Paper Size is set to A4 CD, and all the printer doors and flaps are is the right positions.

I've test-driven other -similar- apps but always come back to using this! This is the BEST in its class. The interface is clean and simple (so what if it's a bit Windoze-ish) and it's easy and stable for even a novice like me to use. The option to download and import more patterns/graphics free from the developer's website might be worth considering in the future (?)

I've used this program since the beginning but have become increasing frustrated with the "Windows-ish" interface, corny included art work and limitations when adding my own pictures (i.e. size limits without auto cropping). The speed is horrible! I found the best of the best with BelightSoft Disc Cover (http://www.belightsoft.com/products/disccover/overview.php) - no affliation to this company! This is the most "Mac-like" program available and intergrates well with other iLife applications. Discus was great for Mac OS 9 but has not keep pace with the iLife, Mac OS X and overall interface changes the make for a pleasurable user experience.
