This is the most frustrating plugin I've ever used. At first glance it looks awesome with the user interface and all of the features it offers, but once you start using it you quickly run into all sorts of problems. I would create graphics by using a bunch of shapes and grouping them together, and then as I continued to edit the objects would slowly reposition themselves without me touching them. I will have every item on a slide animated, it looks perfect in the preview, and then when you publish and view it on the site, some of the animations work, and others don't. Some objects will randomly scale to different sizes on the front end even though they look great on the editor. The latest issue is that the editor is impossibly slow to work with. I've spent so much time using this thing, and now I'm going to have to find something else to use and start over.

Whilst a plugin has to actually do something useful before anyone will use it, what sets the really useful ones apart is the support. My experience today was 5 star. After starting a chat convo, I had a human within 2 minutes. Monica was quick to request the necessary details, investigate and fix the issue, plus a follow-up point. Perfect!This was with the free version as well. (I actually do own the pro, but support weren't aware of that; I was helped straightaway anyway)This sort of service really inspires me to use Depicter on more of my client sites. Thank you Monica!

This slider has been good for the most part and has robust features. However, it can sometimes be glitchy.
