But this is because it has so many features I guess.
For rapid design, use Cadsoft Eagle, because it is so quick to generate your own
parts symbols, and get your board designed quickly. I personally think I can work 2-3 times faster with Eagle.

To have the most stable and reliable version of DXP, you should have all four service packs installed. Between the original version of DXP and SP-4, several hundred new features and improvements were made.
