Zooming with Scale

Using only a single background you can get as many drawings as you want on different scales, in any format, within seconds.
In order to maximize user control, each layer of Trace Pro is now an own drawing with a liveliness of its own. The layers can be hide, the paper type, and opacity can be manipulated according to the layer type. The layer manager also helps to assign a name or scale to a layer to turn it into a drawing. A number of drawings and sketches can be made using the layers.
After the completion of the drawing, you can save it and may export it to a colleague, contractor or client in just a second. Control title blocks and borders to make a sketch into a quick official drawing.
