I actually really like using Macromedia Flash for its drawing tools. It's great for simple stuff and exports illustrator 8 which my sign program likes. It's not a complicated program and while its best for doing crazy animations and off the hook programming and scripting, the intuitive drawing tools are just fantastic.

I own macromedia MX suite but only use FLASH from it - never got the hang of freehand but did use fireworks a lot for web stuff.

I do everything in Corel X3 and bring it into Flexi to print/cut.
I also have Adobe CS Illustrator and Photoshop. CAD Designer uses Sketch-Up not CAD. I fumble around with the trial version from Google.

Regularily... I use Illustrator CS2, Photoshop CS2, Flexisign Pro 8.0v2, CorelDraw X3 and the entire Macromedia MX Suite (Dreamweaver, flash etc.).

Got plenty of more programs, but only dabble with them. Not much more.

CorelDraw X3 is my #1 program.

Primarily Corel X3 (both Draw and Paint) for design...along with the Adobe Suite that I'm still trying to learn. For vinyl cutting, CoCut Pro all the way. For printing, I use Wasatch SoftRip. I also have Inspire XP Pro, but it screwed with my CoCut Pro, so I unloaded it. It seemed kinda quirky to me, but seems to have some good features. I gotta say that this latest edition of Corel is VERY nice...I've been using X3 since it came out and am very pleased.

Since "other" is a big enough number can people expound a little bit more on what they are using. I see in the replies:

Macromedia Flash
CoCut

I would also like more replies based on the number of registered users.

Thanks

I'm one who checked other. We use Designart 2000(anagraph) alittle, mainly for referencing older file jobs we have done with that software, that will now be done in Coreldraw.

I think the largest contributor to the "Other" category are the users of the various private label software from Flexi which I recently added to the Flexi line. Other major others would be all the various bridge and basic cutting programs given away with various plotters.

We primarily use ANAgraph 3.5 for our die-cutting vinyls and PC-60 printer/cutter, while we use many of the other programs for our 540 VersaCamm.

The other programs we have is to help us use customers files in native programs so we don't have so much switching around to do.

I use Micrographics Designer since I can actually cut on my Encad from it. The overpriced, crippled version of SA Photoprint I got to do this will print reliably, but only cuts on whim.
