Way too hard to understand for a beginner or occasional user. Too little help to understand command uses that are intuitive in other cad offerings. Example "how do I draw end view of a (2"by 6" board?). I'm used to seeing a box to enter a dimensin for X Y but nothi g seemsto work here and no help to figure it out. I am not against searching for help but I spent too many hours trying to find a solution to what should be intuitive issue. Liik, I am not throwing stones, I'm nobody to say your work is not good it ust is too complicated foe someone like me to use without some help. I wish it was user friendly. I am using User Manual for LibreCad 2.0

License: Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike (CC BY-SA 3.0) but still cant figure how to draw to scale. I need to design a louvred roof for an outdoor deck. It requires smooth operation and MUST be precie in layout and a few manufactured parts> I could go old school and draw with a pencil scale and compass but REALLY want to get this figured out.

Pros
  • some beginner help
  • help file menu line
Cons
  • how to do info
  • why not use open source to help users learn?
