Thank you for your continued support!
The app seems good and professional, but it has so many buttons that seems not to do anything, that are also all dumped in one location and thus difficult to find the button with a certain function. The filing system is not intuitive.
The app is good and has potential, but the organisation of the GUI is bad making it difficult to use.
This is another great app that help me reduced my reliance on pc. I use it for drawing building details and it works great. Reasons for not awarding 5 star is not able to import or export to dwg/dxf files. Hatching facility and other CAD drawing facility like offset will be useful . Overall this is a great app.
