JSON is slightly more compact than Apple's PList format; the base format for EazyDraw Graphics format is PList. Over the next few years, beginning with 2024, the EazyDraw Graphics and Binary form will be phased out in favor of JSON. At this time of the release of EazyDraw 11, users should still use the time-proven EazyDraw Graphics format for large critical drawings.
