Sorry for the curt title. Blame that on the BB software. :-)

I have Pocket C Architect. It is not clear to me from this website what the benefit is in also purchasing OrbForms Designer. (There is no positioning information.)

So, is it the ability to design forms using a GUI? Should I have bought OrbForms Designer 4 in the first place and not bothered with Pocket C Architect? Actually I upgraded from Pocket C to Pocket C Architect at a special price but don't recall seeing an offer to buy OrbForms Designer in the upgrade offer e-mail.

So, I'm also curious what the price to buy OrbForms Designer is if you already have Pocket C Architect. I'm guessing it's the regular price.

Just install the designer-demo and compare yourself :-)
I came from the designer, installed the architect and quickly decided that I would never switch;
anyway, I've bought the palm-compiler as an addition to the orbforms-designer and implemented a 2 way "convertor" (pc-project <-> palm-project sync).

I'm in the middle of a deep dive of comparing the two environments, and am interested why you would go from designer to architect.

From my inexperienced perspective, designer gives you everything architect does, but also a gui forms and menu editor. Are there other differences? What advantage(s) does architect have?

I have a Mac. The only way I can run any Orbworks desktop software now is with a Windows emulator (like Virtual PC or Guest PC) which does work, but is slow and inconvenient. At some point, I will get a new Mac which has an Intel processor, but this doesn't mean that Windows software will just run. There will be Windows emulators (like Wine) which will work at nearly native speed, but this still will be somewhat inconvenient. I mostly use a Mac editor for writing my software for Pocket C and PocketC Architect, then move back and forth between the Mac and emulated Windows environment to use PocketC Architect (or Pocket C Desktop) to get the program to compile, then move to either my Palm or the Mac Palm Emulator for debugging and recompiling. I also have OrbForms Designer which I will sometimes use for doing complex screen layouts. I had gotten it when it was relatively new to experiment with, but found that having to go back to the Windows emulator for every debug/edit/recompile cycle was too time consuming.
