Plate 'n' Sheet Professional Version 4, Feature List.

Drawing from feedback received from our clients over the duration of Version 3, we have made major changes to Version 4 to provide more shapes, more options within the shapes and more additional features making your job easier.
'Ease of use' is our guiding principle. In Version 4 we believe we have been able to provide many additional features while maintaining the program's original simplicity for the user.
