Circuit and electronics designers may need an option to better design products on a Mac. LayoutEditor for Mac may not be worthwhile for the average user, but for those needing this type of software, it could be a good option.

Download and installation of LayoutEditor for Mac occurred quickly despite the lack of a native installer. After startup and the acceptance of a lengthy user agreement, the program starts quickly, but lacks any instructions or visible support. The interface is confusing to the average user and the Help section did little to demonstrate the program's features. There are several buttons along the top of the window and a separate row of 14 along the side. Few of their functions are easily determined by the button's graphic. While confusing, the program does work well and has most of the functioning of other, very expensive, computer-aided design programs. Users can zoom in and out to create details at several different sizes, which can be used for different parts of a design. For those with some CAD experience, the program should be easy to use, while others may only be able to create basic shapes, lines, and text boxes.

While too complicated for those without design software experience, LayoutEditor for Mac's features and performance make it a useful option for those looking for design software.
