I use Microsoft Publisher extensively for my work, which is doing concept drawings for parts and products, creating instruction manuals, drawing out rough product idea's, Marketing Flyer's just about everything. Publisher is the only reason I boot my Mac's into Windows .... if I can find an alternative to Publisher I can say goodbye to Windows and use only OS X ... I need to find easy to learn software for drawing product idea's/concepts, doing booklet layouts, Flyers. I realize I need to move beyond Publisher and into better 2D and learn 3D software design. It's almost embarrassing I do this for a living, communicating with Engineers who send me back complicated, beautiful 2D and 3D drawings from the very rough PDF's I send them .... My problem is finding time to learn new software, but it's time now. I need to find something that will do everything I need it to do, plus be extremely easy to learn, and better yet have video tutorials so I can get a fast and smooth start. Experts, any suggestions greatly welcomed. Coming from Publisher it feels like I'm starting from scratch when I research all the available software. Publisher has been VERY easy to use yet it did most of what I needed to do, but it's too simplistic considering the drawings I could be doing maybe in google sketchup or something ... however that's drawing software only, not suitable for simple 8 page manuals, flyers ... it's a big software world in this area and I'm lost.
