I have been tasked with updating Process Safety Management procedures for the company I work for. I need to be able to illustrate manufacturing line processes along with many architectural nuances of the facility. This program is filling the bill nicely. Armed only with four years of high school drafting classes from 45 years ago, I find this program intuitive and easy to use. I ran into one "glitch" in only one of the many drawings I have made. An e-mail to the developer was answered in less than 24 hours. They requested a copy of the file which they fixed and returned to me, again within less than 24 hours.

I've been using Back to the Drawing Board since about November, and I'm continually blown away by what you get for the price with this app. When I first started using it, there were certainly issues with missing features and regular crashes. However, with each update it gets better and better. I've been using v.3 since the update was pushed out in the past couple weeks and am loving the new features and tweaked interface- and have so far experiences zero crashes. An essential app for my work and hobbies!

can't seem to make it copy yet, when I do click copy nothing happens and I see no paste, normally another copy popped next to the unit and that is not happening for some reason, still figuring it out but really like the improvements,

I PURCHASED THIS APP WHILE ON ANOTHER NETWORK WITH ANOTHER INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER. EVER SINCE I DO NOT USE THAT NETWORK ANYMORE THE APP WILL BRING ME TO A BLANK BLACK SCREEN. I AM NOT TO GOOD WITH THIS STUFF AND IT IS VERY HARD FOR ME TO REPAIR THINGS LIKE THIS. I AM UPSET THAT THERE IS NO INFORMATION ON HOW TO RECOVER THE APP I PURCHASED THAT I CAN NOT USE.

Poor drawing tool. A waste of my money.

I hate to give 1 star to such a nice program. I have a feature request that would easily make this a five star app. I would rate it 4.5 stars now. Only gave 1 star because website offers no way to contact author. Hopefully they will see this.

good drawing app but needs a few improvements for touch screens. - a permanent zoom window in the corner so you can see under your finger - transparent on-screen zoom and pan controls - some method of locking points together - faster switching method between draw and select. - auto dimensioning of line segments - a snap connect only setting (toggleable while drawing) - some indication as to what tool you have selected and what status is - ability to hide / make layers translucent but so far it is looking good.
