By 'scaled' I mean like a map for example - 1 inch on the drawing (the
map in this case) equals 10 miles on the ground. Or, for a house, 1
inch on the drawing equals 10 feet on the house. See how basic this
is? I still can't believe any drawing program could ever be written
without this feature!
Oh, and by reasonably priced, I mean less than $100.
I did find 'Intaglio' by Purgatory Design, which seems to be pretty
good, but still isn't as easy to use as MacDraw II or good old Canvas
I'll look at Stone Design, thanks.
