I had used this a bit when I was using Illustrator and thought it worked well. Now I've switched to Affinity Designer. I would like to see CADtools work with Affinity Designer.

OK, but expensive, especially considering the (sum of) upgrades. If it can't phone home it’s a demo after seven days. It is to short - not even ADOBE does that in seven days.

Fairly serious money, but does what it does well. For Illustrator users it makes a lot of sense to stick with the drawing environment you know. Seems to run very solid in CS4.

One thing I would add is that when people have paid $279 for the AI plug-in (or $149 to upgrade), to sting them $89 for 134 pattern swatches and $359 for a complete library of symbols seems very mean when such resources are included with comparably priced CAD apps.

I have been using this plugin from almost the very beginning. It is worth every penny and more considering the alternatives. Please keep on with this great work.
