It may not have all the necessary pro features some people demand, but I've been able to create two icons inside 10 minutes that previously would have taken me an age in illustrator because I don't know it, and I find illustrator horribly unintuitive. Drawberry has what I need right in front of me, job done, move on and no hair torn out.

I like Drawberry.
Sleek and nice interface.
Easy to use, even though I understand from other reviews that not everyone would agree with me.
Efficient and very promising.
It's good, it's free... and it's French! Cocorico!

The HUD menus appear to be working correctly. The grid no longer warps when resizing the window. Nice work!

Almost no built-in help, dropdown menus in HUD tools still need to translation from French to English (and other languages?). No user's guide or any other documentation on developer's website.

Does this app presume familiarity with some Illustrator or some other vector drawing app in order to be usable?

Great idea, maybe good tools, but unfortunately not a very intuitive usage. I miss Freehand.

Freehand will be my app of choice till it's busted on whatever future OS makes it obsolete. While the new Illustrator CS4 is getting closer, it's still a bloated hog and I don't see full parity for another few versions. In the meantime I'm watching Vector apps like Drawberry and others to see how they evolve. The Independent vector app "race" is promising.

This app is really shaping up nice although lots of user interface bugs spoil the fun. It is really difficult to select lines. However very promising and really impressive work from a solo developer. Well done.

I personaly know the Developer, and it's incredible to see the work he done alone ! This freeware works really great and I can't imagine, even as a developer, the hard work it is. Simply amazing

Fantastic start to what will no doubt turn out to be a very promising application.

I have a few gripes that I'm sure are already on the Developers radar:

1) The ability to insert and manipulate text is central to any vector art application. I could not find a way to do so in this application, despite the screenshot showing some form of text manipulation going on.

2) The inability to nudge objects and move them around the workspace using the keyboard arrows is frustrating, since the mouse is quite limiting for exact movements.

3) The panels work great. There should be a way to setup workspaces and save and load them afterwards. Those workspaces need to remember which panels were expanded and which were not.

But all in all a very elegant release. I'm looking forward to scrapping the ever-more bloated Adobe Illustrator CS3 in favor of this app. This loads in less than a second on my 1st generation MBP, whereas CS3 takes a good 20-30 seconds.

what I did to nudge the shapes with the keyboard, was to use sticky keys, worked well

Almost what i needed, but I saved a document, and now when I want to open it, it doesn't open.

Missing features I think it should have:
1. Copy and paste doesn't work on a shape with an image fill, works with gradient and color fills

2. no text tool

3. opening document problem i mentioned before

4. using an image fill should have the option of a tile effect

if you know a way to fix numbers 1 & 3, please tell me
