Below is the character I will attempt to make

I wish all software makers would include a simple tutorial on their software. I can not tell you how many times I have downloaded a software trial and I was just so overwhelmed by all the buttons and so very confused with how everything works that I just give up and uninstall the program. You would think they would realize that it is so important for a new software user to get a success under their belt, even if it is a small success. This gives you the confidence to continue with the program.
