     I would like to see a word wrap capable text box and size and layout control in the pdf export process.

We already have a word wrap capable format-able text box using the command " Draw, multiline text.  The width of the text box can be set on the bottom line of its various menus.  Does that not serve your purposes?

Given that we can use a FREE pdf print driver from acrobat, cute, or foxit, or etc to achieve fully formatted pdf printouts, I would prefer Designcad team to focus on the things we do not have,

In particular - like text variables to be inserted in a drawing, or within a line of text, such as date printed, filename, etc, and preferably be able to print or display any text string that basiccad can produce.
