1) Won't run on anything over Windows 98
2) Doesn't support newer printer/plotters. Though I've just got it working
with a new HP DesignJet by capturing LPT1 to the network printer server.
3) No cut and paste into other documents.

drawing < 1 second! And yes, I do use the auto-router if I can waste board
