"Would not install"
There are no pros to software that cannot be completely installed.
Would not install without Ghostscript & link to Ghostscript was outdated, so I could not install Ghostscript unless I wanted to take the time to look for it, and I don't.
This program is not for mid-level computer users like myself, let alone the low-level users for whom I am testing publishing software.
I could not even get it installed. It would not finish installation without Ghostscript & link to Ghostscript was outdated. The "ReadMe" file--which only opens after you start the installation so you don't know until then you need Ghostscript--had such involved instructions that I didn't want to go further. I know the folks I'm testing this for wouldn't be able to handle it at all.
A pop-up saying I need Ghostscript also appeared on my desktop, but it was nearly unreadable because the window was so small and would not allow me to expand it.
I have downloaded a lot from CNET and this is by far the worst experience I've had. I might not mind going through this for a really great program, but my friends would not be able to handle it at all.
