Maidstone, Kent. - 3rd May 2005 -   Microspot Ltd, developers of 2D and 3D graphics and media management applications, today announced the release of Microspot MacDraft 5.5.7 Professional and Personal Editions. MacDraft Professional is a powerful 2D design, drafting and technical illustration application that is affordable and designed for users of all levels.  This release includes a Spotlight plug-in for Mac OS X Tiger, the worlds most advanced operating system.  

Spotlight is Tiger's lightning-fast search technology that illuminates every corner of your Mac, displaying results as fast as you type.  Robert Coulling, M.D. of Microspot said "The great thing is the spotlight plug-in works with existing MacDraft files so as soon as you install Tiger and MacDraft v 5.5.7 your searches  will find text in any MacDraft file and make finding particular drawings much easier than before."
