This is really good software, just look at the great reviews. You rarely see such universally positive accolades. It is powerful, well laid out and easy to figure out without using the manual. I have used and despised Quark and their attitude since the very beginning and have used PageMaker, Swift, Scribus and others, but keep coming back to this MultiAd even though it has been discontinued.

But, there is one HUGE problem, the developer was astoundlingly clueless in knowing that they had a BIG winner on their hands. For the price they had absolutely no competition! They came from the newspaper and corporate market and had no idea how to sell in the consumer market. So, instead of working it, they basically gave up as soon as they started. It's really sad as this could be really popular.

I hope they come to their senses and bring out a Desktop version of the new MultiAd. For professionals I full recommend you buy their pro version as it is still a great deal, but for those of us who only occasionally need DTP and so buying a $500 is absurd, I suggest that you push MultiAd to bring this product back to life. It fully deserves it. Please call them.

Don't they call it Creator Express now? At $30 it would be a steal.

Terrific software for home publishing or professional publishing. At $99, this software is a bargain and is every bit as good as InDesign or QuarkXpress (which costs hundreds of $$$$ more). The Oro version is costly but the Desktop version of MultiAd is just what the doctor ordered.

I've worked with Creator since the late 80s. This is the program that should've been the "Quark-Killer" . The relatively new desktop version is a good program at only $100. Definately worth the price. There are some features missing that are included in the professional version ($500), but there are workarounds and the adverage user might not even miss them.

User friendly and there are features not seen from other layout programs. Great ad builder!

I've been a Creator fan for more than 10 years now. It's largely used in newspaper environs but it's much, much more powerful than just a ad-builder program. In fact, it's much easier to use than Quark and more intuitive. Typographically it's precision is also equal to InDesign.

Do yourself a favour and check out Creator, as it's a bargain. Okay, I hear you saying that no one uses it...well think again, as it's export features allow you to create EPS files and PDFs on the fly!

Creator's been my fiendishly fast friend for years and I think will remain my favourite DTP and ad makeup program.
