Easy to get into and start working. Some good features and it works very well for floor planning and also for making mind maps.
A bit of a resource hog. Can be a little hard to collaborate when comparing to other programs.
Give the trial a go. You should be able to pick up on it pretty quickly and evaluate if it meets your needs.
Making floor plans for the office and shop area. Easy drag and drop along with plenty of graphics to choose from. We also used for easy making of exit maps.

It is an item that can be utilized by an individual start in CAD frameworks to do basic illustrations and figure out how to draw straightforward floor plans for an undertaking they may do.

The courses of events are somewhat hard to work with. At times the air pockets take on their very own psyche and don't give you a chance to move and control them effectively.
They are continually requesting contribution on the most proficient method to improve the item and genuinely tune in to our recommendations.
I think the advantages were brief. We went from purchasing this device and bringing together on it with the goal that everybody could have a mind mapping device and a stream outline instrument (it's a lot less expensive than Visio) to a great many people not utilizing it at any rate... It is still simple however for some staff when they have to construct a snappy coincidental straightforward visual presentation graph/chart.
I like the ease of use. This product gives me just enough options to get the job done without over complicating things like CAD tends to do.
Sometimes there is issues getting the lines to snap together correctly. This happens when drawing walls using the auto-snap feature. It seems like it is a little too magnetic at times and the only alternative is turning it off completely.
We are able to quote smaller jobs quickly and easily without getting into the woods of auto-cad. This increases productivity and turn around time on smaller projects which increases our overall volume of projects completed.
I love the floor plans and all the incidentals to make a room complete
I have an old software; for Windows. At work I have a MAC. Not sure if easier just to use online version
It's user friendly and can self teach .
Can blueprints. Forms for daily tasks
The graphics and UI are visually pleasing
Sometimes the UI is tough to use, for instance, the speech bubbles don't always work correctly
I use it to present use cases and story telling
Tons of templates to choose from to convey meaning and present data
Takes long time to load program for usage and for files to open
Use the templates rather than starting from scratch to maximize value
Visual presentation of strategies
The range of options and templates to use when creating diagrams is great! This allows us to streamline our processes and get work done quickly.
It can hog resources, so older machines can slow down when using it.
Being able to create diagrams and visual components to presentations has been a real boon to us!
Use the free version and I was able to design mental maps to fulfill the academic assignments in my school.
It is an easy-to-use program, it is innovative in editing these types of diagrams.
It allows the creation of many types of diagrams, in my case use only mental maps and task planning diagrams, better known as Gantt diagrams.
When trying to capture all the planning for a year of a fictional project, I had problems because the diagram was so wide the columns were difficult to visualize and adjust to a better size. However, with the mental maps, I do not complain because its editing was very simple and I was able to translate my ideas as I had thought to do.
In the disadvantages I could mention that I do not like it to be paid. And it would be great to have its downloadable version.
I insist that it is an application software for many academic, professional and personal needs, of any idea there is a good representation through diagrams, and this is precisely the specialty of Smartdraw, it allows us to translate our ideas through diagrams.
The tool is very powerful so I recommend it to my colleagues and professors alike.
It is a very beneficial application because it allows the edition of diagrams for professional, academic and personal use. It is one of those basic applications that we must have in our computer.
