I don't know the opinion of the list on newer versions of the SIL
Shoebox, but I've used it in the past with some success. There is
quite a learning curve to get it customised in a particular way, but
it seems very customisable.

Looking at it doesn't
look like the software is free any more, which is probably a huge
downside for most of us.

Anyway, in my limited experience, older versions were quite good,
although I can't speak for newer versions.
