Basically from CAD backgtound i recently started learning how to use graphic creation software and techniques, i felt like all those

software suits are missing advanced methematical geometry creation tools which are inherent in almost every CAD softwares. i will put some example like; if you are going to create a pie then you first draw a cricle whose center is not shown so dividing this circle becomes more of guess work next if you want to creat and circular symmetric pattern there is no tool...no the other side the cad packages creates nice looking radial and linear patterns...alignment of elements is again done by guess work.....

treemonster, it sounds to me like you are comparing apples to oranges. CAD programs are designed to do specific things that other programs are not designed to do.

Also, when you say "graphic creation software" you are being very generic. Are you referring to a vector program such as Illustrator? or a bitmap program such as Photoshop?

Regardless of which one you are referring to, they both can do what you have talked about in your post, assuming you have enough experience in the program.

What cat said. There are some pretty powerful vector tools out there for 2D. As always, read the manual.
