My impression is that it isn't usability, but rather documentation. While I found the tool fairly intuitive, a number of tips in this thread I would never have figured out save by accident. The problem with an "intuitive" tool design is that it isn't necessarily intuitive to everyone. This is especially true when one is attempting to learn a program while doing a project. If that project has a deadline, it compounds the problem within the user's mind—and the human mind is a very peculiar squirrel. As a friend of mine once remarked, a project with a deadline is not the time to learn a new technology.
Good documentation, either as "tool tips" or in some written form, however, can only do so much, and nothing if one does not RTFM, for whatever reason. That's one reason lists like this are such a good resource. They are generally quicker than searching through a massive tome for the answer.
