    Hi, I just downloaded this nice drafting package. I have to agree with the rest of the community that it is a great program considering that it is free. I have only three comments, 1) The help manual is a little out of date with the latest update of the software, but this isn't a serious problem. 2) I would like to print the help manual but I am reluctant to do so because the graphics of the screen have a black background which uses a huge amount of ink. The drawing area is black so it is expected that the graphics would also be the same color. It would be nice if the background color of the drawing area was white. This would save a lot if ink when a person wants to print the manual. 3) It appears that printing to an 8.5 x 11 paper seems to be a problem. I can see what I want when I click on "Print Preview" but when I go to print it, nothing is sent to my printer. I personally find it hard to look at drawings that have a black background. I am an mechanical engineer and most of the drafting packages at work do not use a black background.

    Good Idea, I was looking for a replacement of Autosketch and DXF compatible. It often crashes (fortunatly, there is an auto backup) It terribly lacks of integrated help (license problem ?), The on line documentation is incomplete, out of date, or boring (long text without formatting) and hard to find. After a getting started, and learn some shortcuts, learn the behaviour, the origins, the relative, absolute coordinates, you can produce respectful sketches. It is not trivial, you have to practice. There are still major bugs, anoying bug (snapping problem...), runtime crash BUT it is highly developped, and bugs are quickly fixed. There is a version 3 in preparation. To resume, it can be an Autoskectch alternative (be aware of scaling, dimensions, unities, codepage, thickness...) that is compatible with DXF (a standard format for that) It horribly lacks of HELP !!! A little difficult to learn : it is similar to 1994 Autoskectch but easier. Although it crashes with unkown reason, you can use it. It get lots of features (and growing)
