Glass Eye 2000, June 9, 2009 5 stars
Pros
This is a great software for the beginner or pro. Easy to use out of the box. I can scan in a basic pattern from a book and trace it into the program in 5 min. including coloring and resizing. I've taken complex pictures from my camera, traced and colored in 45 min. Resizing is easy and accurate. The library designs are nice, but I do mostly original. Customers love that we can choose colors to get an idea of the effects. Color changes are easy. Can email jpgs for approval. Nothing like a signed approval before committing to a $1500 window. As far a customer service, I never needed them till last month when the computer crashed and I had to reload. They had me back running in one phone call.
Cons
Like all CAD software you need to design clean and make all lines connect. Its just good drafting habits or you will spend a little time to get all your pieces to take color. The colors are not exact but no picture does stained glass justice. Like everyone I've changed out my share of glass. The program may seem pricey if your used to free ware but I can use a $99 printer and print a 40" x 40" pattern by tiling and taping. It saved me from buying a $6,000 plotter and plotter paper. The software paid for its self on the first window, and I wrote the up-grade off on my taxes the next year. If your computer crashes you need to call them for a re-load but its no big deal.
Other Thoughts
This program makes me money.

Safety, Safety, Safety, these are so simple and work so well.

You do go through a few sponges, but a wet paper towel is a good replacement.
