"EdrawMax is totally amazing. I just finished an intense 10 day long rush job working 14 hr days with EdrawMax to put the company in a new, fast growth direction. Almost everything was sublimely superb with the app. It is deceptively powerful. In fact, it’s easy to under estimate!! It does not look like a cross between a Hummer and a Lamborghini, but it is a workhorse and an artist's treasure. I got stuff done so fast it shocked me. With no training and little prior experience with this app, I was able to do almost everything I needed."
