The Easel design team have been extremely busy lately coming out with some AWESOME new features and keep in mind that it is FREE!.
If you NEED features that are currently not available, you have 2 options....be patient or do your homework and learn a program that will do what you want to do NOW.
If you are going to be doing any sort of CNC work, you need to have some understanding of what you are doing, but some programs will make it easier than others.
Buy a copy of VCarve and spend some time learning its features.
You will find it to be very intuitive.
