But I have to put in a disclaimer, lol. I have a Bachelors in Computer Science, have worked as a Quality Assurance Software Tester for ages, and have taken college courses in using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I have to say that many of the mechanisms for working on the quilt, or it's blocks, or setting up special "palettes" of threads and fabrics in EQ7 operates with an approach that's very similar to Illustrator.
I think anyone willing to study the information Electric Quilt supplies, no matter how non-computer-savvy they are, can learn to use this with patience. And it's pretty darn slick once you get the hang of it!!!
There are a number of helpful tools to modify your quilt design, such as tools to rotate or flip blocks, auto fill the entire quilt with a block, fill alternate blocks with a single design, etc. I particularly like the symmetry tool which allows you to rotate all the blocks in a quilt in a symmetrical fashion. There are 16 different iterations before you return to the original layout. The patterns produced by this tool on a quilt of log cabin blocks is amazing. The program lets you keep variations of every quilt design simply by adding them to the sketchbook. Everything you add is available to bring up later.
The license for this product allows you to have it activated on two computers at a time. As long as you have internet access you can easily deactivate one computer and activate another, so you can have the software installed on every computer in your house but only activated on any 2 computers at a time. It isn't quite as flexible as a dongle, but it is fairly painless since both deactivation and activate are quick and simple processes.
I highly recommend this program for anyone interested in designing their own quilts. I have tried other programs which were primitive by comparison.
