Tried emailing them 4 times now but no ones getting back to me for some reason. Any one of you guys know if there is a metric version of Frameready I can try before I buy? Alternatively, a metric version of an equally in depth framers software?

Thanks

Yes, FrameReady is from Canada and is capable of using metric dimensions and being used via Apple computers.
Thanks for the quick reply. How do I get it though?

I've emailed them. It's more practical than calling them. However, if any of you guys know if there actually is a metric version and where to find it I would appreciate the help. Been searching for it online for a while and I'm surprised its not readily available on their website. :S

Sorry they're unresponsive. Things seem to have changed there since Adatasol took over.

Another system worth checking out is i-framer. We've found the pricing system much more flexible than FR, and they're very helpful. They're in Australia and are cloud-based.
Also, metric (with an Imperial option). If internet reception is spotty on Cyprus, perhaps software is the way to go. Otherwise, worth a look: i-framer https://public.i-framer.com/

Thanks. I've tried completing their online form at I-framer twice and both times it failed to complete the registration. So I can't get a trial on that either. Although, like you said, a on-location solution is safer for my situation.

Yes indeed. If there is an "x" in the box it means its a metric version. The one depicted is not. The one I'm trying out isn't either (see my attached image). So the version you download is set by default to a measuring system and cannot be changed (indicated by the 'x' in the box much like in boolean, Yes or No). I need a metric version to try out with the metric box ticked "x".

1 thing to check is the site name. make sure no spaces all 1 word. i.e Souripictureframing
2nd user name has to be unique. i.e instead of Mark (as it is taken) would have to add something i.e Mark1234
Which country are you selecting as well? I will make sure the country is not the issue.

I am about 100 km from where FrameReady is located. We had 150,000 without electric power when a storm front passed through with gusts in the 100 km/h range this past weekend. Possibly they are without power.

Woah. Hope everyone's ok. I'll look that up.

By the way, Ms Carol from Frameready (customer relations) confirmed that they currently don't have a metric version posted anywhere. They will send a link to a copy soon though. Mystery solved. Thank you everyone for your support.
