  1. This is a combination of bugs/suggestions for improvement that I experienced while working with the program for a couple of hours. I originally put it in the other section but realized that it probably fits more in this section so copied it over. When creating master templates, it would be nice to have the ability to do arrays with duplication. Meaning, if you highlight an object you want to duplicate you can click an array button to fill in the preset margins with the max number copies that will fill in the page, or the max number of copies that will fill in a row or column. After applying a master template to a page, the changes you make to that page should not also affect the master template page. (I applied the master template to a page, imported images and when I placed them it applied them to both the page I was working on AND the master template. Also, when I applied that particular master template to another page, it also applied the photos. If I changed or deleted a photo on any of the pages it changed it on all 3 pages.) Images imported: it seems to delete images you have brought into the program using the "Place Image Tool" for almost any reason. If I try to import another image, all the images I previously imported are deleted. If I place an image and then realize I placed it wrong it and undo the action it deletes it from the "Place Images" tab and I cannot easily reimport the image without deleting the others. If you click on any other tools to do anything else, it deletes the images you imported. Will there be a way for images to not get deleted so easily? It would be really nice if you can import some images, and then import more as needed at a later time while keeping all the ones you originally imported. It would be nice to place an image back in that tab if you mistakenly place it and want to move it somewhere else. Why does it rotate all images so they are landscape instead of keeping as they are in the original file? (Some were a portrait, some were a landscape, but all images were imported as landscape.) It would also be really nice if there was a separate tab where used images where located and it kept track of how many instances an image was used and, if possible, on which page(s). When placing an image into a picture frame which has already been made to the desired size, it should not resize the picture frame. Can you make it so we can edit borders on images easily? (i.e. if we want the same color and size board on multiple images, we should be able to select all the images we want to change and then change them all at once.) Additionally, if you add borders then it should be limited to the size of the picture frame, not be larger than the desired margins. Adding a border does not allow you to easily snap the photo to the print margin without the border being outside of the print margin. Can you make it easier to scale and center an image after you have placed it into a picture frame? Currently, you have to double click the picture frame itself and hope it has moved to the image instead of the frame OR you have to click on the photo in the layers list and then go back to resize it. It would be nice if the scroll button on the mouse made the image smaller or larger (in aspect ratio) when cropping the image itself and not the picture frame. I am also assuming we will be able to edit photos (to adjust contrast, balance, shadows, etc.) after the photo persona is properly linked. Margin snapping to the halfway between the designated margins, both vertically and horizontally. Have an option where grid only appears within the designated margins.

  3. I am going to be using this program to create a yearbook for a charter school. So my suggestions will be pointed to more functionality in that aspect. Our books tend to be about 64 pages each year and hold about 1,000 images. When creating master templates, it would be nice to have the ability to do arrays with duplication. Meaning, if you highlight an object you want to duplicate you can click an array button to fill in the preset margins with the max number copies that will fill in the page, or the max number of copies that will fill in a row or column.

I have been fiddling with it for a couple of hours now and these are the things I have noticed so far. I will comment in this thread as I find more things. Please let me know if you need clarification or for me to share screenshots. I tried to make my statements concise but detailed enough for you to understand.
