Overall Artisteer will work the same way as previously, you will just need to be connected to the internet while exporting your templates.

Mac OS Artisteer 3.0 Release Candidate 2 for Windows, Beta 2 for Mac

May 25, 2011

Mac OS Artisteer 2.2 for Mac (Beta) has arrived

June 26, 2009

Artisteer 2.2 for Mac (Beta) is now available by clicking here. Couple interesting facts:
  • Artisteer for Mac joins the family of products based on cross-platform .NET framework known as Mono.
  • Artisteer might be the first product for Mac OS utilizing the ribbon interface first introduced in Microsoft Office 2007 for Windows.
Technical notes and known issues for beta testers:
  • Artisteer for Mac runs on Intel based hardware with OS X version 10.5 (Leopard).
  • Artisteer for Mac requires X11 which is usually installed by default on OS X 10.5.
  • Artisteer may require approx 1 minute to start the first time after installation.
  • The "Open" and "Save" dialogs display Windows style folder structure and may require additional navigation to desired Mac folders.
  • The top Mac menu bar does not offer an option to quit Artisteer. Use the Artisteer menu, keyboard shortcut 'Command'+'Q', or the red window close button to quit.
  • Please do not click anywhere within the web design preview area. Currently this disables keyboard shortcuts and may cause other unexpected behavior.
  • Certain amount of instability and limitations (as above) are expected due to limitations of the current Mono framework 2.4.
  • There is a slight chance that your Mac computer may freeze when using Artisteer (this happened once in our tests). Please save all your work often in case you need to reboot your computer.
  • For technical users willing to help us debug occasional crashes, instructions are available here.
Customers who purchased an Artisteer license can use it on both PC and Mac computers (one each) during the beta period, while after product release it can be used on one computer. An official release date of the Mac version will be planned after receiving detailed  issue reports from our beta testers and determining how much work is needed to resolve those issues.
Please send feedback and report reproducible issues to our support via the Contact Us page.
