That's the reason why I'm pretty sure I won't buy v5, even if it was priced at $9.99 for an upgrade. Look at the past,
tell me how unlikely it is to end up with something that companies like Adobe did years ago... yes, check out the
new version - and at the same time, loose your v4 license, so you will never ever work locally again.
I can see the online shop in my mind. Offering heart shaped infill patterns for only $0.99 *
* (only up to temperatures of 230°C, otherwise you'll require the ULTRA-HIGH-TEMPERATURE-OPTION, $1.49/mth)
As far as I can tell they don't even bother to "release" new user accounts on this forum more than 1-2 times a month.
Imagine just having bought this product, posting on the forum and not seeing your post going live for 3 weeks... ^^
Probably one of the reasons why many people stopped answering at all - there's no point in answering something a
new user has asked 3-4 weeks ago, he's probably long gone.... ^^
