It takes time to get used to all the features and to explore all the tools available. You open up a blank canvas because for some reason none of the templates matches your needs and then what? Blank canvas – blank mind? Sometimes colors don’t seem to match, icons don’t align the way you want them to and background stands out (not in a good way!).
