I would love to see selectable objects that could be moved, rotated, and scaled. Even better, if the user could create objects (similar to vectorworks) that could be dragged onto page and manipulated.

Hi David, id you need to make a complex drawing do it with a app for desktop computers.
Hi David, thanks for the feedback! One of our design goals with the software is to keep it as simple as possible while still being useful in a professional setting. We've used some of the other exceptional iPad drawing apps out there, with literally thousands of features, but have found them to be very difficult to learn and constraining compared to a desktop experience.
For manipulating objects, some users have asked if it would be possible to rotate and reposition drawing layers. Would being able to move entire layers around arbitrarily in space suit your needs?
Also, we too like the idea of having more drawing templates, to complement our Circle and Straight Edge tools with french curves and other shapes. We're trying to preserve hand drawing and drafting techniques without necessarily becoming a full on replacement for more complex illustration tools.
What kinds of shapes did you have in mind?
