Some much needed functionality

Love the app, but it would be nice to be able to add shapes... For example I'd like to be able to add circles, or squares, and shade them, to visually represent the coverage zone my DBs are responsible for. Or from an offensive perspective who the read is, etc. Being able to also insert an extra player and possible shading them to represent the different areas the RB may line up in is easier than drawing up 3 distinct different formations where only one single players alignment changes.

Actually you can create rectangles and fill them with colors.


Only 1 concern...

I have the 4.5 version with about 1000+ plays. Now that I have bought the 5.0 version, how do I go about converting my 4.5 to 5.0 version? Because as of right now, I can only open up my 4.5 version with my 4.5 playmaker pro and I can only open up the new version with the new 5.0 version. Please help!

Developer Response ,

Try adding a ".fbd" extension to your file names. That should solve the problem.

Easily adaptable for 8 man!

I just talked to Bruce about making the adjustments for 8 man football teams. Very easy to set up a template for 8 man teams! Bruce is awesome to work with! Highly recommend this product
