AutoSave

Auto-Save is a system-wide service that allows MacDraft to automatically save the document you’re working on; you don't need to issue a save command. Auto-Save monitors you as you work on a document. When you pause, it saves the document. If you work continuously, Auto-Save will perform a save every 5 minutes. That means you won't lose more than 5 minutes of work should something unexpected happen.

Full Screen Mode

MacDraft 7 supports full-screen mode (the app fills the entire screen) so you can take advantage of every inch of the screen and work without desktop distractions. This gives you complete control over your designs and layouts.

Document Tabs

Unclutter your MacDraft windows by using the all new document tabs. You can merge all of your windows into one window by displaying each document as a separate tab in the same window, keeping your working area clean and tidy.
