The program comes with standard sizes and has the option for inputting custom sizes for individual people. I use the custom sizing feature when designing the girls sweaters and so far they seem to fit them perfectly with room for some growth. After you select which size you want to make you select design features such as straight or fitted, what type of hem, neckline style, arm length, shoulder style (on the hearts sweater I used gathered here), type of collar you want. Oh, and it let's you choose how tight or loose you want the garment to fit. I think that's all of it off the top of my head. Then it takes all that information and does the math for you. You still have to figure out placement of stuff like the hearts and cables etc and there's a place to input the stitch pattern information and it uses that to figure out if you need a few more stitches or a few less. You can also use another program like PC Stitch to chart designs like flowers, butterflies and so forth onto your schematic and have a chart to use for where to start those. It's not perfect but maybe someday the programmer will add in more stuff to make it alot easier to use.
