I am not so impressed. I have not yet found he most important feature, "Object info", essential if I want to have any degree of control of what you are drawing. And the "librecad.org" website is not responding, so "help" is not available.
Pretty good, good job devs!
Linux Mint, Mate, 17.2 There is no integrated help. The on line documentation is extremely hard to find, incomplete and inaccurate. After hours-and-hours of trying to make sense of the manual, I gave up. It is NOT a free software. One pays for it with his time. IE: wasting my life.
I prefer LibreCad for geometric construction. This program is lightweight and fast. It reads DWG files, and can export to SVG.
