Considering buying Macdraft - had a quick go with the PE edition, seems ok. BUT... does it support pinch zoom on a trackpad? 2-finger scroll works, but zooming is awkward. TIA

Not sure about the trackpad (Iā€™m a mouser) but you quickly get used to using at least a few of the keyboard shortcuts, in this case hitting Z for the zoom tool and then Esc to get back to the pointer. When you have the zoom tool selected, you can either click on a spot to zoom in ā€” repeat as needed ā€” or Option-click to zoom out, or you can click and drag a rectangle and the drawing zooms in as close as possible to that rectangle.

thanks - was aware of this, but I need the trackpad zoom that works as it does in many other programs and which I find much faster.
