    My husband is a master's level hardware and software engineer. I sent him the link and asked him to verify that it's safe to install and run. I'll check back and let you know.

    This software is great!! I have been looking for a cheaper alternative to the EQ software, because I really only wanted it for the wreath maker tool..I just couldn't justify that kind of money for 1 function that I wanted..., and this software has it, so I am just thrilled!This is just what I need!!
    It is very basic, but also very easy to navigate, so that's just great for me...I also am very interested in the paper piecing tool...you can divide a photo into parts to paper piece..that's something I might give a try this winter..
    Thank you Bella Boo...you have made my day!! Donna

    Okay, so my husband weighed in. If you have virus protection software, you just need to check it for viruses. I don't know if all work the same, but with mine, you just right click on the download before you open or install it and then scan it for viruses. If there are no viruses, it is safe to install and run it.

    I am so jealous. I want to make it work too. I read the directions but when I do what they say I just get a line that splits the screen and changes colors. Then I don't know how to go from there as my picture disappears. I can't figure out the tools.

    There should be a manual that you can print--a pdf file. There are three different ones in different languages, I presume. I think the one I printed was called "ENU."

    There is a forum...you can ask questions there.
    http://www.cosman.nl/software_en.html
    I will play around some with mine tonight and see if I can find out what you are doing.I don't have my program open right now..but just from (my very short) memory..I believe that you are in the part where you color your blocks..you need to get to the part that says "design''...it's in a drop down menu in the upper left...then in the box next to that select if you want straight lines, circles, arcs...etc...if you have that design in there (the 1 you were describing)...you may have to close it out and start over(i'm not sure)..but just click file, then close design
    then file. 'new' to start a new design...good luck!! Donna
