I use this feature all the time.

Be careful if you are re-using a plan for a new project.

If you don't reset the timer you will be accumulating more time on top of the original time.

It would be nice if when you copy the Project it would prompt you to reset the timer or not.

I use the timer all the time. I agree with Richard it would be nice if the timer was a little more editable, or able to customize parameters!

This is a feature that I wish I had been using long ago.  I will need to get used to closing out my projects when not working on them though. I've a habbit of leaving my drawings open, or even have several projects open at one time.

The timer does npot run just because the plan is open.

I can't remember the time but it will turn off the timer if there is no mouse or keyboard activity for a certain amount of time.
