Anyone having problems with the new version of Draftsight? It's crashing alot on me, just doing simple things. Wished I never installed it. Thought the new version had the drafting and annotation ribbon like Autocad but that's only for the professional paid version. I may end up using Autocad for the course as I have access to it at school. Not sure when I'll take the course but definitely want to. School teaches mostly mechanical drafting, some arch, but not enough to do complete house plans. And it's difficult to get example plans. The building depts here want freedom of information forms filled out to get building plans and if the blueprints have an architects stamp, they won't let you look at them. Anyway, I'm pretty disappointed in the new version of DS. Older version seemed to work just fine.

Yes, and it's hard to understand why. Anyway, I'm waiting for 2018 SP3 to try again. I guess they have new builds
but it's not really posted with the download. I'll just wait for a while. "Stuck" , using Autocad for now. It means driving out to school. A weird thing, started a drawing with Draftsight, then switched to Autocad because of the problems,
now Autocad behaves badly. Lines drawn become hidden lines for some reason. I should have started from scratch.
I looked at Qcad, but it works differently than Autocad or Draftsight.
best wishes,
