Correct. Thanks. Some of the things are difficult in Illustrator too  
(but easy in FreeHand).

FWIW, I also fired off my list to the people working on Eazy Draw and

I try very hard not to be influenced by product names and instead to  
concentrate on what the tool actually does and how well it does it.

If E-D would just add a few more features and tone down the colour in  
the UI a bit it could be much more useful. In particular, not  
supporting spot colours is a real deal breaker (of course, if OS X  
came w/ a PANTONE license like FreeHand did, it'd ``just work'').
