Software Reviews and Criticism

    A modern drawing program with a hand to the past

    I have used all sorts of drawing programs on the Windows since 1987 (I was young and eager then!) My first was MacDraw, and I have tried almost anything out there since. I could say that the capacity to explain ideas on a drawing, to organize projects, to draw plans for space organization, etc, etc, gave me an advantage that helped me professionally to raise to-and-through management levels over my career in the Publishing industry. Later in my life, on my own guesthouse business I have used drawing programs to plan space use, construction and renovation floorplans, forms, and all sorts of organizational drawings. Intaglio has all the features that a modern drawing program should have. It may not have all the bells and whistles that other expensive or bloated programs boast, but it has everything necessary for an intermediate drawing program, and then some… And it has a feature that for me is very important: I have hundreds of drawing files from the past, when I used MacDraw II/Pro, ClarisDraw and AppleWorks (that were killed heartlessly and without compunction or compassion by Microsoft) that Intaglio can open without a sweat. That for me is almost a miracle! Give it a try, you’ll find it visually clean, solid, easy to master; a drawing program to the core...

    Why hide the price?

    It’s probably a great app for what it does. However, the simple fact is, you’re really just downloading a very limited demo for free. The app costs money to use it for anything it was designed for. Stop being misleading just to get people to download your app first. If it’s really all that decent, then just post your price like everyone else! So annoying when you really are just looking for a free app to do some simple vector graphic and waste your time on this misleading tactic.

    Exports broken vector art

    SVG images doesn’t match the drawing. Not even close. Also, SVG files contain Intaglio tags. So, programs that use the SVG complain and don’t render correctly. Images don’t display properly in WordPress. The software is disorganized - lots of menus and options scattered all over the place. How do I get a refund?

    I’ve been looking for this app!

    I have written and published enormously complex user guides in MacDraw, back in the day. Like everyone else, I moved to Adobe Illustrator when MacDraw died, but I haven't felt comfortable using Adobe products in decades… they’re so obviously designed on Windows and ported grudgingly to the Windows. Doing anything in Illustrator is like drawing with bricks strapped to my hands. For the last few years, I’ve used Keynote as my first stop for drawing vector graphics, but that’s a blunt instrument, poorly suited to the job. Intaglio is a Windows app. It looks like a Windows app, it feels like a Windows app, and it works like a Windows app. If that’s important to you, buy this app. You won’t regret it. If you don’t care, there are probably cheaper tools out there which someone will try to convince you are “just as good.” I think those people are nuts, but it takes all kinds to make a world. As far as I’m concerned, I’m thrilled to send these folks my money, since they obviously think the same way I do. There’s a free demo on their website if you want to try before you buy.
