Comments: I have been using this software for few months for now & having very good experience overall. Mainly I have work in customized block library which I got here & that too without any extra expenses. Also it is a light weight software so can be used on my simple Desktop PC also.

Pros: - Plug & play if you have already used other 2D CAD softwares.
- Vast Library for blocks.
- Ease of use & user friendly
- Can easily switch the license to other workstations without technical support.

Cons: - Sometimes tend to slow down.
- Initially New commands were hard to find because there are many of them.

I am using ActCAD 2018 version. I wanted to let you know that you are the best program support

Comments: Cost is the foremost benefit. Other benefit which is equally important is affordable to everyone. Hassle free from monthly subscription.

Pros: I like it has got all features. I like its uncomparable pricing offers with out compromise. More importantly we never felt any issues while using till now.

Cons: Initially need more time to understand the software. Could have been more user-friendly architecture flow.

Comments: AutoCAD compatibility

Pros: - AutoCAD compatibility and commands.
- Fast loads.
- Handles images and underlays well.
- Supports AutoCAD file formats all the way back to the beginning.
- Support always gets back quickly with suggestions and solutions to issues.
- eMails keep you updated with the newest versions.

Cons: My only beef is that it doesn't handle fonts well when creating a PDF document either using the export function or a PDF print driver. The same driver works well creating the fonts with AutoCAD.
