54 of 55 people found the following review helpful By Jerry L. Mackey on July 7, 2011
Based on the list price of this software, you might think that it would be a powerful, efficient, BUG-FREE application that would rival Adobe Creative Suite for ease and power of vector and paint content creation. Or at least it would be as easy to use and as well-polished as its sister product, Sketchbook Pro 2011, which does pixel painting only, no vector art.

You would be wrong.

Despite being their 2.0 product (2012 release), this feels like a rough beta in many ways on my system. This may not be fair, because I also use Sketchbook Pro, which is so well-polished, that my expectations for Sketchbook Designer were high, especially given that for little more than the addition of vector tools, Autodesk is charging TEN TIMES the price of Sketchbook Pro 2011. After using it SBD 2012, I consider this price to be utterly ridiculous.

BUGS!!

I am using this on a system that absolutely sings with Sketchbook PRO 2011, so I did have the expectation that SBD 2012 would work at least moderately well. Instead, there are random lock-ups of many seconds, during which mouse actions are captured, and then result in a mess of unintended operations once the SBD GUI wakes up again.

Occasionally, SBD will out-right crash to the desktop, losing all your unsaved work.

This behavior is with light usage, NOT loading multi-megabyte image resources, using dozens of vector and paint layers, etc. Just doing a circle and trying to fill it with something was pretty crashy.

Layer blending is buggy _sometimes_. I was trying out several blend modes, it will show a mode, appear to accept the change, and then as soon as I selected a different layer, it switched itself back to the previous mode.
