What did you do at all?
Did you ever have at least a short look into their manual and
tutorial about how things are organised and how to get started?

I know that the free EAGLE version is fully functional, it's not
just a demo (it's only limited in the board size, the schematic page
count, and the number of layers).
If you are not willing to have a look at the concept of a CAD
software, you will never find one that you can accept. Professional
PCB layout is different from drawing small pictures with M$ Paint.
