Editors' Review

+

Diagram Designer provides users with an opportunity to quickly design simple flow charts, which should appeal to business people. Though it has a snag with its text feature, the program's simplicity makes it a more attractive choice than other similar programs.

This download has an incredibly simple interface that should not take much getting used to, no matter what level of user you are. Happily, there are Help files on the Internet and within the program. One interface complaint comes from its ability to fill charts with color, since the palette is slightly hidden along the top. However, users will gravitate toward the simple click-and-drag shapes and arrows that will comprise their diagrams. The diagrams were simple to create and adjust if mistakes were made. With a variety of shapes and arrows, even the most complex business flow chart or organizational map can be laid out and labeled on the fly, unlike similar downloads. Our only gripe was with labeling--if users wish to add bold, italic or other font enhancements it must be done using a form of HTML code, which complicates matters for users used to clicking a button for such changes.

However, we felt this freeware program's text snag was easy to overlook since Diagram Designer created our chart much easier than similar products we've tested in the past. We recommend this program for anyone who needs diagrams in a hurry.

"Easy to use"

August 26, 2010  |  By trodrigues

 |  Version: Diagram Designer 1.23

Pros

Ease of use. Able to create simple flow charts easily.

Cons

Toolbar on right-hand side of screen not easy to read (too small). Had to play with shapes to see if they would work for intended flow-charting purpose. Would have preferred easier method for creating yes/no algorithm-type charts.

Summary

Simple, easy to use tool for simple flow charting needs.

"Quick to install, learn, produce simple flowcharts."

August 19, 2010  |  By gthurman

 |  Version: Diagram Designer 1.23

Pros

It provides basic flowchart symbols, with symbol labels, to assist in designing. It is much easier to explain process logic, using a chart, shared over the Internet than just providing a list of actions.

Cons

The Help file could use more detail. Fonts are simple once you understand \B starts bold, \b stops bold.

Summary

Under a deadline, i struggled with Office 2007 SmartArt. This solved the problem. I'll contribute to the designer.

"Absolutely perfect!"

August 11, 2010  |  By rastarrph

 |  Version: Diagram Designer 1.23

Pros

Very easy and intuitive

Cons

no cons
some more weird and wonderful shapes would be nice, but squares, ellipticals and hexagons are usually the norm, which it has.
more cornered lines, as i had to use multiple straight lines to do what i wanted to do, was easy but needed effort.

Summary

You can copy and paste anything you have just created, for instance a branch with several tributaries, instead of making them all over again for another section, you can "paste in place"
You can alter the color brackground of anything by rgb colours
When you place something using your mouse, it may be difficult to align it, depending on your 'wrist control' so you can place it to the 'mm' from the left of page using 'properties'
