I'm not the man to know, but from what little I've seen EagleSoft looks like a good bet. I believe it meets all your stated requirments.

If you get proficient on the freeware package they have a professional one that can do a lot more.

i use geda in linux which i find extremly esy and reliable it doese take some getting used to but it is very fast and free i do not know if there is a windows based equivalent but if you are into electrical as a hoby then due to the amount of free software out there for linux then i would if i were you at least give it a try remember linux itself is free so give ubuntu a try you will not go back

I agree with Bill on this one. The limited evaluation edition of EAGLEPCB is probably the most cost effective package I know about.

This site has a long standing policy about not facilitating the theft of software.

Your candor in expressing that intent here is amazing. Is there anything you feel you are not entitled to for free?
