PLEASE - Can you produce a comparison chart to show what features this plugin offers compared to Composer?!

I'd made my mind up to drop this Rhino plugin in favour of Composer c/w its' own Rhino plugin. Now this release boasts support for curves and dimensions, which is a big, big plus for me. So what do I do now?

The issue is the time of the release, this functionality will be available in SimLab Composer 2014 SP1
All features of the plugin will be available in SimLab Composer 2014 SP1

Will that continue to be the case? 'All' is the critical bit. In other words, if you can afford to buy Composer, there's no point in also buying the Rhino PDF plugin as all of the latters' functionality is available in Composer (timing of service packs aside)?

To put is simple and clear, our plan is to have all the features included in SimLab Composer.
If you take the small effort needed to learn a new application, SimLab Composer is the best option.

If what you need is to export 3D PDF from inside Rhino, without new learning, then you should use the plugin.

I'm very happy with this release, opening the model tree and having the correct units displayed while measuring were both big pluses for me!

Thanks,
Don
