Ugraded plant database - Landmark

Question

Most other landscape design tools include the ability to produce a plant information document. It would be a VAST improvement over the current simple text database approach. I have a link to the document that Garden Graphics Dynascape product creates.

Example: http://www.jeffreylandscape.com/document.html

I had a look at the jeffreylandscape link and I wish we had an eternal database that could produce reports like this by finding out which plants we had used in out plant schedule and then assembling the report for us

The problem with many larger softwares, is the proprietary process they used to create what they do, and an inability to tap tools existing like Excel, for example, for this purpose. DynaSCAPE harnesses external powers that be, including the AutoCAD engine it's built on. Microstation is an example of a powerful program, which will probably expand in true Windows fashion, to objectification upon wheels already created. God knows, they have recreated enough wheels in the meantime, and often it's an ego complex which needs to be shattered. Thus Photoshop, though powerful, will operate like a 1988 Mac interface, as afar as a truly interactive GUI, of which, the right-click is a clear indication, if lacking a menu, that they are not there yet, but they have coma a long way, atleast further than Bentley's Microstation. They just won't pay the Microsoft bill, and sacrifice functionality and their own power in the meantime. Bill Gates won, get over it, and let's concentrate on empowering landscape designers with power tools, based on the current dominant technologies, not ones which dominated programmatic architecture ten years or more ago. This is a symptom of a technology surpassing the technologists who created it. With Landmark, I believe, you time the functionality, after the dross has cleared, into an cceptable tool for a high quality product in my opinion, from research on the Mac platform.
