OK the awful UI was the reason I stopped using the beta and switched back to main release. Now that v3 has gone gold and thus forced to customers I'm seriously considering moving to something else. This thing has become an insult to my eyes and is not intuitive at all. It looks like someone without any design skills just found out how to do layers in Photoshop and dropped whatever basic shape he could find somewhere on the screen. There's no rule at all, it's just a big mess of buttons and symbols of different sizes, shapes and placement.
This would have been ok 10 years ago but competition didn't sleep and usability has become at least as important as features and functionality.
For now I'm reverting to V2 again.
