Not very good, exporting doesn't work well.

This is my first time using a resume maker product, and after reading several reviews and deciding to purchase online at Amazon, I am unimpressed. Let's start with a few problems I've repeatedly had:
-I cannot scroll downwards to see my entire resume
-Bullet points will not line up
-Constant obtrusive pop up tooltip windows, etc.

These are just a few minor problems that became big problems when I could not fix these issues no matter what I did. However, my main problem with Resume Makers is this: exporting almost never works correctly.
Export to PDF-bullets move.
Export to .doc-total anarchy. bullets move, text moves locations, nothing lines up correctly, total disaster.
export to .rtx-same as .doc.
Truth be told, I did end up getting PDF to work, but I was only able to do it by changing the layout format of my resume, which seems awfully ridiculous considering the length they went to to promote how adaptable resume maker's supposedly is. So essentially I wasted hours of time working on my resume only to find out it wouldn't export correctly, and having to go back and change it so exporting would work. Waste of time.

I definitely would not recommend this... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend Resume Maker Professional to a friend.

Not a Wise Use of Your Time or Money

Because I liked and earlier version of this program, I was confident when I purchased and downloaded an updated version of it directly from the company that makes it several days ago. I use a lot of software and have never had problems installing any of it...but this product will not install. When I added in the activation key, I got an error message telling me that the software could not connect to the activation server. When I contacted their help desk, I was told my anti-virus software was preventing the connection. I turned it off and still was not able to activate the software. I sent that information to the technician who responded that something in MY network was preventing the connection and I needed to turn off ALL protection on the computer and on my network. Funny that I have never had this problem before with ANY other product...but I had my IT savvy son help me turn off EVERYTHING that protects my computer and the software still would not activate. I notified the tech again. He STILL said I must remove every protection from my computer, my server, and my network and then give him remote access... (Read the full review)

To be clear, I am reviewing the 16th edition of the software, as there is now a 17th edition which I have not tried. First, if you opt to download the software, as I did, please heed my tale and REGISTER YOUR PURCHASE!I did not do this and my computer was distroyed 3 weeks after I made the purchse. Despite my efforts to obtain assistance regarding the restoration of the program on to my new laptop, in the end I was unable to get my purchase acknowledged because I did not register it. I will not let this cloud the review of the actual software:

It does have all of the features that it claims to have on the website. The main problem I had with this system was weeding through all of the 15,000 samples and phrases to chose the ones most approriate. Analogy time: Lets say I am standing in front of a 5 foot mound of jewels, however, I am on a time limit and am really only interested in the most valuable of the jewels; DIAMONDS! So, while all of the content in this mound is of some value (after all we are talking about precious... (Read the full review)
