    Anyone using it? Hoping to do the 30 day trial (if I can find/make time). I have used it online in meeting with an engineering firm. Pro's & Cons?

    We just started using it for residential and fire sprinkler and alarm drawings. Very impressive. The search feature is awesome. You can grab a rectangle of any symbol, hit search, it will tell you how many, what pages, then hit highlight and everyone on the drawing will be highlighted, It Is great for identifying SD, notification appliances, plumbing fixtures or any symbol used on the drawing. Make your own stamps. You can access form any where and even upload a file and then work offline in the field. We just purchased the Revue level since we are not "creating" plans. It has become the default PDF reader for the 3 guys using it

    We use it for Go To Meetings and I'm really impressed with it.
