I too use Diptrace and I like it very much! Sure, it's not as refined as for example Adobe Photoshop and the like. But it's very logical, intuitive, and easy to work with.

Just do yourself a favor and learn to use all four parts of their application suite. Pattern Editor, Component Editor, Schematic, and PCB Layout. Especially if you are new to PCB design and such, like I was when I started using Diptrace. It's best to do it the "proper" way from the beginning, working from a schematic and then on to PCB layout. Something I didn't do for the longest time :)
