  • Perfect project, thanks a lot

  • Thanks for great project! Simply the best.Good,good,good.+1

  • very good project, thanks!

  • This is very useful to quickly digitize data from plots in publications where the source data is not available. It's not so easy to extract the data from curves but as long as the datapoints are well separated, it's a great little tool. P.S.: I don't understand at all the previous comment about purchasing. It's an open source that is not restricted at all and I see no link to a version to buy?!

  • I have to say that it's a royal pain to purchase it. If you have been using the free version, and think you can just pay for and download the full version, and keep working, think again. I received no keys or codes, and no promise of a snail mail version either. Come on people!
