"Poor Software - again!"1.0 starson by jester2372
Pros: There is very little this software offers that other FREE Web design applications offer.
Cons: Very difficult to layer and build the websites with this software. If you are god with HTML and CSS then you will have NO problems.
Summary: I purchased this software under the impression it was easy to use. The fact is, it is far from easy. If you know HTML then you will have absolutely no problem building a website. If you are not a programmer, forget it! This software has great potential but Microsoft decided to leave that out in Version 1-4.
It is truly sad when you have 3 images that you cannot easily layer on top of one another to create the Header with a Logo and a seperate layer of text. I had no problem with adding a background but then I decided to add a header that was 1150px X 185px. There is no place to center it in the image properties. If I knew HTML, I could have modified the code.
Eventually I was able to get the image to center but I had to change the image width to 1260px.
Now I add my Logo - .png file over the top of the header. This worked fine and I was able to alter the verticle distance to center it. I could not drage the image where I wanted it as this would have been a beneficial feature. Now that this is done I have two items to add to the header section: 1) an image file (text) that will help fill in the extra space and 2) a Log in section.
I tried to add a new layer and insert the text image over the right side of the header. It automatically inserts it below the header on the right side. What a pain in the A$S! I spent another 2.5 hours trying to get this to work with no luck. I watched tutorials which none of them show anything similar and I will never get that time back.
Why is it so difficult to build a web design software that is actually easy to use. If I want to add 22 images to one area, I should be able to do this. If I want to insert a log in feature that controls certain pages in my website, I should have this functionality.
I can only wait to see how difficult it will be to insert a shopping cart and make my images Pop up in a new window as a larger view without opening a new browser window or tab.
WEAK!!! CHEAP!!!!! JUNK!!!!!
