This product may be one of the worst items I have ever bought. The tutorial is Mac based and only loosely relates to a PC. Trying to follow the tutorial, which uses a different program toolbar than the one for a PC, and having the PC tutorial overlay the tutorial video, makes for an impossible situation. For me, a drawing board and a T-square will be much more productive.
