Canvas is, technically, a technical drawing program, but it’s also a lot more: With it you can create vector and bitmap graphics, do page layout, and of course, draft technical illustrations.

No longer owned by Deneba, further development of Canvas was now under the leadership of ACD Systems with their release of Canvas 9.0.

This is the final version release of the Canvas 9 series, vers. 9.0.4, Professional Edition.

ACD Systems had working demo copies of Canvas 9 that were downloadable from their web pages.

However, these demo apps were able to become fully working programs by using a serial key to enable all features and remove the demo's limitations... The download above, is one such demo installer.

See "AboutThis.txt" enclosed in the DL, for more info on how to enable Canvas 9.

I have not found a trial copy of v. 9.0.4, only an update page...

Actually mrdav, the link you provided is for version 9.0.4 (Build 820) Smile

It only dawned on me after a day or two of fruitless searching for 9.0.4 and had begun trialing the one dl'd from the link you gave, below. - It is hugely bug-fixed and superior to the earlier version that was here, so I've replaced it, bundled the addendum PDF into the archive and updated the description, above.

Many thanks for finding this, mrdav.

Don't know how you find these things, but thanks for those links, mrdav. That 9.0.3 installer is 10MB's+ larger than the 9.0.2 installer. Quite a hike of development in just a year between them.

A link to v. 9.0 3 installer is:

I have not found a trial copy of v. 9.0.4, only an update page that requires registration. All links to v. 9.0.4 demo that I have found actually point to an installer for v. 9.0.3

An addendum to the manual for v. 9.0.4 is:
