I thought I would chime in as an old timer, having used Pan since I think early 1990’s. I bought the 5 year plan from Jim, as my way of thanking him for all the years of support and fun of using the old Panorama. Maybe it is age, but I am struggling with Pan X and the completely different way of doing things. And I was one who thought it was important to upgrade and modernize.
One of things I think may just be holding back a totally new group of users is there are no very good samples being shown, just some of the left over’s from days gone by. As one who never got into doing a lot of tutorial readings for any apps, I am inclined not to get bogged down with viewing videos or reading tutorials. I like to see samples and learn from them.
I spent two months a few summers ago learning a web design program and did so with little help other than seeing samples and asking a few questions. Most of what I see in the Pan forum is advanced coding issues that the ordinary user has little need for. I don’t want to insult anyone, because I enjoy reading all the posts, but getting Pan X to generate data and html files for posting on web pages, etc. is more in line with practical application of Pan X.
