Zippo, nadda, in the trash - Started program, got a warning and how to work around a bug in the hints dialog. I tried to imported a BMP image, and it just showed a white box instead of my image. Then tried to imported a PNG file that was 240x1708. Program crashed. Retried the PNG, crashed again. Program is now in the trash. Can't say I would recommend this program.
