3.0 out of 5 stars I did it... your way..., 26 Feb. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DrawPlus X5 (PC) (CD-ROM)
This is a good drawing program.

Yes it locks up on occasion (you did save your work, didn't you?) but it works satisfactorily with a tablet so it's a cost effective way of drawing digitally.

The irritating aspect of this program is that you have to do things Serif's way (eg the layers need to be stacked in the correct order from the start,similar to the process of creating a [real world] oil painting. If you enjoy hours of fruitless fun, try reordering them once they are complete...).

So a good, reasonably priced tool as long as you don't mind learning it (ie in order to do what you want to do you have to work within the parameters of how Serif's want you to do it).

Recommended, but don't expect to get everything 'right' first try - hence the 3 stars.

I'm only thinking of getting this so no hands on experience but I did watch a serif tutorial for x5 which showed layers being dragged, specifically layer 3 being dragged below layer 2.

Creating vector shapes in the order they are composited isn't "Serifs way" - it's the same for any vector package. Reordering them afterwards is as simple as dragging them in the layers list, or cit and paste. Not that difficult really!
If that's your reason for not giving a better rating, then perhaps you should compare every other leading vector package out there - you'll see that they are largely the same in this respect.
