    Sorry...I meant to say "legacy themes" not "legacy fonts." Doing away with the old themes messed up old projects AND limited user options. Cheers.

    I understand the power of Spark is intended to be ease-of-use, but the lack of control is frustrating once you get a handle on this product and start running out of variations. Even looking at the inspiration pieces you start to see and hear the same stuff over and over.

    So really, the alternative should be either to 1) provide more creative control to the user (layout, fonts, animation, etc.) OR 2) provide a MUCH bigger theme set to choose from.

    I say this from the perspective of Spark Video, and haven't played around with Post or Page much. IMO, video is a nice target niche since products like Canva don't do video.

    8 video themes simply will not cut it. Even with the ability to "create new themes", all you can really control are a few colors and fonts. (Which makes it really frustrating that you did away with the legacy fonts...why not just add to them?)

    I really like the potential of this product, but at best it only functions for me as a basic prototyper at this point. I mean, I'm not expecting After Effects Light or anything, but it seems taking this a step further could make this really useful. As it stand, it's probably not going to be worth me continuing to pay the $10/month fee.

    Thanks for the consideration.

    While I'm not sure if the product is "ruined"...I definitely prefer the old themes. Why remove them? Why not just add them to the new set of themes and provide greater choice?

    I believe this is critical. If you're going to limit control over layout, fonts, etc...then providing a greater variety of themes would be immensely helpful. If not, then provide more control so themes can be adjusted. I agree with others that the newer themes aren't nearly as good as the legacy ones.
