Onshape must be usable offline

Let me explain why i say "must".

I have tried different CAD motion assembly apps and Onshape seems to be what i look for.
But for me if the offline is not possible, it's a big problem.
Lot of my time, I'm not connected to the internet, and i need to develop my ideas, but it's not possible to use it offline.
I understand you need connected to your cloud, but maybe you can add for the pro users an offline cloud apps.

Thanks for your response.

    Hello everybody.
    I agree with ryo_saeba. This program is really awesome, but in countries like mine, we don´t have internet very often. This program could work like a "google drive"... we design offline and then it sync to the cloud. Obviously all the team work part will be lost, but at least we can create parts and drawings offline.

    I'm sitting on an Airplane.  They haven't upgraded to the latest satellite connection, so Onshape is just painfully slow. I need to work.

    The work-around I plan to do for this is to have a back-up CAD system where I have to export my geometry and work on it.  Not for a permanent solution, but something that allows me to draw when I need to figure something out... then do the work for real when I get a real internet connection again.

    Since I have committed to Onshape, I really do need to pick a suitable back-up CAD system.  Does anyone have a recommendation that gets me by with little to no cost?
