LibreCAD vs DraftSight opinions
Commands are long winded - commands use not clear - struggles with DWG files
Very basic. Unable to create sheets and view ports. Doesn't work with DWG files. Is not a suitable alternative to DraftSight.
Simple and much faster. Needs to be able to import multiple files at once and be able to set default save types.
Doesn't open DWG files like Draftsight.
