More issues - Disappointed !

- I loaded up a html file with no styling at all and Theme-it didn't change anything (it needs styles pre-defined. I guess because there were no colors to manage?

That left me perplexed as I expected it to theme the page (the product title suggested that to me).

- For the limited functionality I didn't find it that intuitive. E.G Using the Color Suggestion Tool led me to think that this would automatically feed into the Theme suggestions but it didn't.

- Using the Up/Down arrows for new suggestions I liked but it wasn't obvious to me how it got those suggestions ?

- And the preview image is too small to see the subtle changes in style. So I was left guessing until after about 20 minutes I discovered by accident you can click the preview to see it rendered in teh browser. You may wanna make this more obvious ?

- Finally, after FINISH I saved the file. Closed the document - Reloaded up - and tried to to use Theme-It again but got a JavaScript error line 661 wa_themeit.js > imageURL "has no properties"

After 30 minutes or so using Theme-It. I am (sorry) not impressed and it's a product I wouldn't buy. I am a hand-coder and get by using Dreamweaver and FireFox's web developer tool bar for trying CSS things out so this product is not aimed at me. I was generally disappointed Sorry !

I am using Windows XP SP3 with DW CS4.
