Though FitPlot is an easy and useful application, it can not be compared with professional graphics layout programs.
It is therefore highly recommended the use of professional layout programs for valuable works, specifically for color matching requirements.
Some FitPlot tools recently introduced, such packing, imposition, image adjusting are in experimental phase and should be improved in future versions. There is no warranty on their reliability, so be careful.
The author is here at your disposal on an e-mail base for help, bug corrections and suggestions.
Regular users will be kept informed of future releases.

Thank you in advance.
NOTE: the donation is performed by PayPal services. As soon as you send the donation, PayPal sends me a notification e-mail.
As soon as I check my mailbox and see your donation, I provide to contact you in order to send you your personal FitPlot code. Though I check for new e-mails very often during the day, it may take a little time from sending donation and receiving password. The act of sending the FitPlot code is done by me, it is not automatic!
Worst cases are when transaction take place from USA at evening time (when I'm sleeping!), and I can read / answer PayPal notification only the morning after (when USA is sleeping, this time!).
The personal FitPlot code:
FitPlot previous password protection was a mild one. I have thought (erroneously!) that a few dollars shareware should have not interested piracy. Unfortunately I have found FitPlot spreaded over the web with its password attached. Such things leaves you without nothing to do but give up your programmer's dream.
For this time I hold on and release this new version that has a new authorizing code system that is unique to each computer it is installed on.
The personal FitPlot code you will receive will work only on one single computer, there is no more one single password for all FitPlot installations. However I set no limit to the number of installations per donation.
To release a personal FitPlot code I have to know something about the computer(s) FitPlot is designed to run. Just contact me for further informations.
For any information / problem / question do not hesitate to contact me at .
If I have been able to build FitPlot from scratch, with my autodidact experience in programming, I have to thank, first of all, Cocoa, Apple's Objective-C based programming environment, with its easy way to create native applications with the so familiar Mac look and feel.
Cocoa brings with itself a wide API collections ready to use and easy enough to use that let you concentrate on the hearth of a program.
Whenever I was in trouble, a dynamic community were out there on the web to help me.
Here's some places I want to thank where I have found fundamental solutions / suggestions:
And, at last, a couple of people whose help have been fundamental, in my first Cocoa steps.
Marco Coïsson (http://homepage.mac.com/marco_coisson/) for his tutorial on Objective-C and his introduction to Cocoa (both in Italian!). Very well done.
Livio Sandel (http://www.macocoa.omitech.it/) for his step-by-step approach (in Italian!) to the basis of a graphic program. Classes as NSView, NSImage, as well as NSCoder and NSAffineTransform have been essential in the early developing phase.
These people not only are technically prepared, they have also the talent to convey enthusiasm. Reading their texts, you can clearly see their longing to let know what they have discovered, because it's a good thing, to share with others.
dankeschön to Markus Berner for its German localization.
Thanks to Brandon Walkin for its BWToolkit (BSD License) essential to realize the new image adjust HUD panel.
Thank you all!
