This product does its job, however, because it is capable of a range of projects it is also complex software to come to terms with. I have only been using it for about three weeks. I found the user guide a little like all of its kind, jargonist, but have now mastered some of the simpler tasks, and can resize and Recolour and send designs to my machine via a USB, which I could previously achieve with Digitizer Pro, the demise of my computer and Update to Windows 10 pushed me into Janome Digitizer 5.5. I would at this point say that Janome have now finally produced software for the mac, too. I would like to compare the two, but the cost of buying both is prohibitive. I think that given time I will learn to use this program effectively, it has a lot of potential, and I will persevere with it.
