View Full Version : My trial is about to run out and I think I reall

My trial is about to run out and I think I really want the program. Does anyone want to sell their license for Alias SketchBook Pro? I just looking for a legit deal that's less than what they are currently asking for.
Or...perhaps there's another reseller of the software that has it for less than Alias's list?
Thanks for any info, leads or deals.

What features do you "lose" when the trial times out?

Saving is probably the first featue to go! Actually, it looks like it probably wont launch at all once it has timed out.

For my part, I really wish that there were something like to SketchBook available for us poor souls using Windows 98....
Any thoughts / suggestions?
Blade Software's NotateIt seems the likeliest candidate.

Actually, you can use SketchBook on your Desktop. I have a Wacom Cintiq attached to my system and, although I have to jump through a couple of hoops due to my dual monitor system, I can faithfully use SketchBook. That's actually where I learned to use it initially and knew that it's real power would be on the TPC.
With the Cintiq, I guess you could still use a regular graphics tablet or (gasp) a mouse but the power probably diminishes rapidly.
All of the developers working on TPC applications need to make they're app's cabaple on both platforms. Microsoft if the biggest sinner when it comes to ignoring this rule. Windows Journal is a fairly nice application and, while the journal viewer is adequate it doesn't give you the power to do the invetible editing of a journal file that you may find useful.
I've yet to see a single TPC that I will be able to both:
1) carry around all day
2) completely replace my desktop with its 19" LCD dual monitor display
Therefore, I probably wont be abandoning my desktop in the near future. Therefore, I need app's that can be used both at the desktop and mobily so that I can keep the workflow going.
Anyway, I haven't seen any other application that works like SketchBook. I know some people are equally facile with the Painter line but I think it's multiple palettes would quickly dominate a TPC's screen realestate. But that's just a guess.
