Had version one and couldn't make head or tale of it printed the manual but still couldn't get my head round it. Put it away and some time later bought version 2. Thought it would be the similar to 1 but no completely different. Like previous reviews its not easy to use and I have barely scratched the surface but I have managed to knock out some drawings that are more than adequate. Admitted it does take time to learn but as you go on and try different techniques you realize that this is a powerful CAD program for the non professional. If you want to spend 500 quid on a CAD program all well and good but if you put the time in learning the operating system you will be more than surprised at the results you can achieve.
Personally I'd recommend it but remember it takes time to learn
