The Good:

Basic functions work fluently. Pretty easy to find your way around. Especially the preview of certain functions are quite handy and useful.

The Bad:

It misses many functions and it's sometimes quite hard to 'exit' a certain tool that you're using.

The Bottomline:

Nice vector program for beginners, or using online if you need to make something quick or sketch a bit.
