Hmmmm. . . for creative type work it is usually best to use a designer type program. Corel and Adobe Illustrator come to mind. The tools in those programs are quite different and tailored to creating original artwork, like scroll work. It is the same concept as CAD. Yes, Aspire can draw things but it is really not a full fledged design or cad program. I use Corel for most of my design work when it comes to artsy stuff.

Aspire does things that a traditional CAD or design program do not. Maybe, someday, there will be a program that does it all.

If you have yet to find a solution, you may consider Gearotic. Has many other uses (including, especially generating gear trains). However, one of the features allows drawing scroll style patterns (even software generated designs based on a few parameters).
