The program is pretty, and Metaproducts is usually good.
First I uninstalled a few year old version I was not using (and which, even though it was .. I think .. GAOTD, it thought it was evaluation). It was sloppy in registry and path leftover cleaned up by Revo.
The GAOTD people were harsh but a few points seem valid.
Standard vs. Professionalhttp://www.metaprodu.../mp/custom.asp?id=29
What is omitted in "Standard" seems pretty basic, although they discussed the print option and you use a right-click workaround. Not sure if it is the same thing. However, a $50 version that is weaker or crippled on printing ?? .. It does not seem like the Standard Pro-thing is done right.
Similar to whatever is missing in plugin capability. A pro version should have some fancy features, the standard $50 versions should not lack basics.
The question of turning the program off is fundamental. Something that uses resources should have a quiet disabled mode one click away.
Maybe here the users have a savvier perspective. I am wary of getting involved, will it be worth the effort ?
