    I'm telling you - you will not be disappointed and you'll wonder why you've been scribbling on Bluebeam all this time. Drawboard is the flagship PDF markup app and nothing else compares to it.

    If I were a one-man show I'd still use BIM 360 for the "work from anywhere" value, and the unlimited backups. The other reason is the times (even if rare) you team up with other designers or...

    Not sure if this adds anything to the thread, but as an MEP guy, I did myself a favor a long time ago and un-checked the Apply Halftone option in my template and it has done wonders for my workflow.
