So frustrating that this is dead, it's a useful app with a lot of potential. Pity they didn't release it as open source if they are ceasing development.

Really dead by now: pulled from the App Store, website has disappeared. Hangs on launch on Mountain Lion. Pity, it was best in class when it came to EPS import and export – something Sketch doesn’t even try to do (yet) – and had a quite polished functionality otherwise.

Not so dead when it's on the Mac App store now. Quite active I'd say.

Dead.

This has been regularly updated, & I've been pretty happy with it - a little funky with an imported .eps file but otherwise quite handy.

The learning curve is very easy, and the raster to vector conversion works well for line art.

oh and randomized gradients like particles and steam and speed blurred stripes...Or "gradient from image"... that would be awesome and inspiring. I guess you can work around that somehow, but having it as a tool...

I really like Vector Designer for the things I do with it.
BUT what would really help: artistic line styles. Everything
is so clean when done in VD.

I got this as part of MacHeist a few weeks ago and only started using it for any real work tonight. It crashed after about 20 minutes but seemed pretty good before and after for doing some simple text / curved arrow diagrams. Help is non-existent -- I don't really want to need to watch a video to get assistance with basic functionality.

I definitely would not pay $70 for this, but as part of MacHeist it's a good deal - hopefully this will lead to an expanded user base which will lobby the devs. to make some improvements. Locking in to a proprietary format is really annoying.

I had a similar experience to danishkirel. This software can be a nightmare to use if you want to do something simple like draw a few circles with arrows between them. Groups don't scale at all like you'd expect, box selection is still broken, etc. The worst part is when you give up and move to Inkscape but realize that VectorDesigner doesn't let you export your work to SVG. PDF is the nearest thing to a lossless way out, but it's not ideal.

VectorDesigner is definitely not intuitive, not powerful, and not worth the price they're asking.
