In the beginning when I was using DrawPlus and Publisher Serif used to ring up to flog the latest version. Every time I suggested that DrawPlus have a bit more CAD in the method of operation. Obviously this has not happened, but at least I could import .dxf files from CAD programmes. Very well it does it too. I still use the last version of Drawplus. Why on earth Ability does not have .dxf import at least is beyond me. Must be a licencing thing. They must be missing out on thousands of sales, or maybe those of us with a technical need are the minority that marketing ignore.
