3D Text and Support are very slow!!!

Great product if you have a high speed processor AND lots of memory! I had to close all the application on my Mac to use this program. The 3D TEXT option is okay- Lettering will not line up straight across page and is has a super long lag time. I typed a 3d text sentence (12 words) and it took over 6 minutes to complete. And it always moves a degree off center.

All the other font types work great with endless options to customise your work. Overall a great product but it took almost two days for me to complete a single invitation.

Worth every wise penny and then some .. I’ve seen none better so far.

I have watched all four of the extensive and musical video introductions to the app and created two really cool graphics, however, I’m really impressed with Art Text 3. It has so many and a more complete set of features to offer than I expected. All the standard editing keystroke combinations I use in my other apps work just as I expected.

Art Text 3.2.2 has considerable and outstanding potential illustrated in the video tutorials, also available after opting to start using the app, on the titlebar’s command menu of Window > Art Text Welcome Window. I’m thrilled with it’s high quality text and shape properties available simply at a combinations of click ’n’ drag mouse kinetics. It may benefit users to pause the videos fairly often to learn the app’s techniques of building wonderful full-color text displays. One extremely enjoyable and flexible app for 2D & 3D texts and shapes, as well as containing much more artistic tools like layers for advanced graphic designers. You may be the next one to leave a good art mark.

An Indespensable Graphics tool

I have used Art text for many years now and recently purchased the latest version…well worth the price. I use Art Text to create powerful and impactful web graphics. Having the ability to quickly apply materials, textures and even import your own additions to the materials library is fantastic. Maybe best of all, there is not a huge learning curve to using it, the screen layout simply makes sense. I love using it in concert with other graphic programs as its easily imports, exports, copies and pastes from one to another; no unique formating restrictions. Buy it you love it.
