    CSS Sculptor opinions

    Level 7
      Hi All,
      Wanted to get some opinions from anyone who has tried the CSS Sculptor
      from WebAssist.

      Thanks.

          I have looked at both products, and think they both have a place. Both look
          like excellent additions to your trick bag. PVII's support is legendary so
          that's a significant plus.

          It would just depend on your level of expertise with CSS as to which would
          be a better fit. I believe that the WA product is more of a learning tool
          than the PVII product might be, and therefore be a little gentler for the
          new user, but that's just my personal take.

            I bought it. I have only used it a couple of times but here are my observations.
            If you are new to css I can see it being a huge help to you. If you are experienced doing layouts in css, then DW CS3 has some nice starter layouts and there are several available on the web as well, then it's usefullness declines a bit. With that said, it's kinda nice to be able to click a couple times and have a nice frame with your color scheme. On my powermac G5 dual 2.0 with 3gb of ram it's sluggish. I've read the more you run it the better it gets.

            Even with CSS Sculptor you are going to handcode much of your layout, or use something like CSS Edit. WebAssist makes some great products and Eric Meyer is certainly an authority on css. It's a quality extension and the less you know about css layout the more valuable it will be to you.

              I don't think he was asking for a comparison with our product.

                      Thanks to all for your comments.
                      I own several of Al's products and they are top notch.

                      Cheers.

                        Thanks Chris.

                        As far as I'm concerned, you can never have too many CSS tools.
