Dedktop Publishing Made Easy - Super app. Does what it says and then some. Developer actually responds to questions and comments! If you do a lot of projects invest in the Clipart Bundle. While not strictly needed, it opens up a lot of creative options.

Review by airmama3

HELP-ASAP - My prgram just crashed!!! I am devastated!!! I have spent HOURS and HOURS working on a newsletter to meet a deadline but it just crashed. It now has a strange freeze frame with only few pages showing. I cannot access anything. I have restarted the program. Please HELP ASAP!! I emailed technical support and hope to hear back ASAP. Unfortunately, there is no toll free number. Had I known I had to contact Ukraine for a direct call, I would have thought twice about purchasing this app. I would LOVE to change the rating. Hopefully, I can salvage what I had and finish my project.

Review by Op Weg met Hem

Best I’ve found for Mac - There are not many worthwhile and user-friendly desktop publishing apps for Macs. This one is the best I’ve found. Some things are not as intuitive as I would like and take a few more steps than would be helpful, but it does everything I want, is simple and reliable to use so it is my “go to” app for desktop publishing on my Mac.
