Not happy with Magix

I have just seen your comment in another section of the forum and @emmrecs response.

Despite my findings above, with how the display works and @browj2 previous comments, the fact that you had already tested the program using the trial version put the onus was on you to determine whether it meets you requirements or not.

As the decision was made to purchase, the program must have met your requirements.

The days of caveat emptor are long gone. It's a vile and horrible comany that just grabs the money and doesn't care. Don't have to justify my actions to you.

How did you ask for the refund?


It seems that there are some differences between P&G Designer and Designer Pro X.

I cannot replicate your first instance. When I import a transparent png file, it remains transparent. This may be a bug and I will check with the TG forum. Which version of P&GD are you using?

I just raised a support ticket. The thing is, it shouldn't matter, in the UK we are protected by the E-Commerce Regulations, that give you 7 days to ask for a refund.

Whichever way you look at it, Magix have my money and I have something I won't use. If nothing else, it is just common decency to say 'sorry you it didn't suit you, here's a refund' It's what any civilised company would do.

I purchased a broadband SIM last week. Couldn't get a good reception, I asked for a partial refund (having used 1Gb testing it), I was offered a full refund, no quibbling. That's how business is done between civilised people.

The ins and outs of the program are irrelevant. It doesn't suit me, that should be enough for any decent company to offer a refund. Magix plainly don't give a fig about anything but getting rich.

. . . . in the UK we are protected by the E-Commerce Regulations . . . .

The E-Commerce Regulations do not cover consumer rights.

. . . . I purchased a broadband SIM last week. . . . .

That is irrelevant to this topic. You bought a physical object which is covered by different regulations.

I would advise you to check your facts - the UK Government website has a lot of information regarding the Distance selling regulations and clearly states the additional rules that relate to downloaded software and cancellation.

This topic will be closed.
