I found the same situation as Bill Allen.  Didn't Simpson send out a survey 
within the last 6 - 12 months (or have one on their web site) for you to 
indicate what you liked.  AFAICR, I received a survey form in the mail and 
that if you would return it, you would be put in a pool for an electronic 
camera --- however, there was no place on the form to put you name.

purposes. They are isometric views (similar or identical to those in the

adapt to construction documents. IMO, their old software which was AutoLisp
driven was much better. However, I believe it cost a lot more to write and
maintain than their current (worthless) format.

Other than that, I don't have an opinion :o).
