Print Artist

A minor update to Instant Artist 1, this version is specifically for Windows 3.1. The version I have is an upgrade released by Pixellite that patches IA 1 to IA 2. It is a graphics utility that enables users to create greeting cards, signs, banners, and more using a large selection of scalable meta graphics and specialised fonts.
Interestingly this update removes all references to Autodesk, and is the last release before it was bought by Sierra and renamed to "Print Artist".

What works

The application runs fine. Can open, create, edit, print, and save a document.

What does not

Oddly the installer for this update is a DOS program, and as such the installer does not run under Wine. If you can run it through other means, then the IA 2 application itself runs fine.

Has the same problems as IA 1,  Some dialogue buttons are slightly cut off. The editor does not seem to like rendering Wine native fonts, only the ones bundled with IA work right.
The save dialogue is supposed to be a custom dialogue with a "Descriptive Name" field that it keeps track of. But under Wine it only gets a generic Win3.x style save dialogue.
