Trying to draw a circle for example just seems odd to me, if I click the circle tool and click/drag in the drawing pane I kind of expect to get a circle/ellipse... instead I get a dashed box with an X in the middle with 2 little circles and squares... and no hints on how to turn it in to a circle. I guess tutorials are the only way to start with it rather than jumping in and trying to figure it out.
