Any new arrival on the technical graphics scene is going to have its initial successes with those who are not already committed to investment in existing tools so, while I would recommend MagicPlot to many established users, I will concentrate her
This review is made on the basis of several months’ experience with late public beta versions of release 10, which have proved solid enough, although some components of the final feature set are not yet in place.
