    Version: EazyDraw 6.3.1

    Pros

    to vector image, I will choose Super Vectorizer http://effectmatrix.com/mac-appstore/Super-Vectorizer.htm

    Cons

    too expensive and not funtional enough

    Summary

    not worth

    "Does everything I want, and more"

    July 01, 2012   |   By talmy

    Version: EazyDraw 4.3

    Pros

    Features galore for just about every conceivable use or user
    Flexible purchasing (30 day free trial, 9 month full license, permanent license, download or boxed)
    Great tutorial designs for most all features, videos, thorough manual (PDF or printed).
    Company is responsive to problems

    Cons

    Confusing interface, especially when getting started.
    Occasionally non-responsive or awkward controls.

    Summary

    I've had a copy for over 5 years now. For me this is my "Mac Draw" replacement, although I've really come via Micrografx Designer on Windows. I use it for technical drawing, electrical schematics for illustrations, block diagrams. Just about every vector graphic need but flow charts for which I use OmniGraffle. It's worked beautifully with my other applications and has good import/export capabilities.

    In reality, the program is probably worth 4 stars because of frustrating interface, but it does get the work done, which is more than I can say about everything else I've tried except for Adobe Illustrator. And AI is much more expensive and just as confusing to use.

    "Looking for a replacement for CANVAS ...."

    August 12, 2011   |   By osos10

    Version: EazyDraw 4.1.0

    Pros

    Looks as the right replacement ...

    Cons

    Odd pricing and versions policies ...

    Summary

    Now this program continue to puzzle me. Here is a new 4.1 version for the same $95 as the new 4 version at the App store. But at the App store the 3.7.5 is still offered for 1/3 of that price? Aside from non English languages support in version(s) 4, I see no difference between 4 and 3.7.5. I use graphic programs only occasionally, and once I master an application I don't like to waste time (and money) on a second one (I am still using CANVAS 9.0, which is obsolete on Lion). I hesitate to purchase and test Eazydraw because of the unclear and odd pricing policy.

    "Spectacular Application"

    February 18, 2011   |   By MacRNF

    Version: EazyDraw 3.6.1

    Pros

    The strength of this drawing program lies in its very powerful, but easy use of tools. Once the interface is learned, this application rapidly becomes the only vector-based drawing program you need.

    Cons

    The interface is unlike other applications. Preference panels are rather complex. Many cool methods exist, but they are are often difficult to find. Object selection via the cursor could be more accurate, particularly when using shift-click.

    Summary

    Bottom-line is that one of my colleagues bought a Mac after watching me use EazyDraw. A better recommendation can hardly be made.

    For me, EazyDraw far outpaces illustrator or canvas in terms of speed, simplicity and control of elements. The preferences and number of ways to achieve your goals are tremendous, even if a bit complex. Layer controls are very intuitive, however, and facilitate easy construction of complex images that can readily be transferred to photoshop layer-by-layer if necessary. I used to use MacDraw and ClarisDraw, and sorely missed them when they disappeared from Apples horizon. EasyDraw takes those concepts to completely new levels and as far as I know is the only application capable of opening MacDraw and ClarisDraw files.

    The developers continue to release upgrades on a regular basis, and are clearly dedicated to this application. If you want a powerful, yet easy drawing app, this is the one, and a at a very fair price.

    "Excellent produt for the price"

    June 06, 2010   |   By stewimac

    Version: EazyDraw 3.4.1

    Pros

    Converts McDraw Pro drawings.

    Cons

    Confusing setup menus.

    Summary

    The only dislike is the conversion of McDraw Pro drawings have many flaws in them.

    "Can't find group/ungroup function."

    January 09, 2010   |   By Gomes Frank B

    Version: EazyDraw 3.3

    Pros

    Have not used it enough to give a rating either way.

    Cons

    The drop down menus seem very complicated. It would require the manual to be able to use the product. And it would take a very long learning curve.

    Summary

    I have thought of purchasing EasyDraw to take over the use of AppleWorks which Apple no longer supports. It's too bad the app is not more user friendly and simpler to use. If the creators of EasyDraw are thinking of replacing AW with their product, they should strive to make the app more AW-like. In the tool bar on the left, the text icon should be higher in the bar. Am having second thoughts about its purchase.

    "nice, the tools interface is a bit balky"

    December 06, 2009   |   By MicroMechanix

    Version: EazyDraw 3.3

    Pros

    better than stock paint program.
    has great features if you know how to get to them.

    Cons

    bugs like when you group objects to rotate or flip they swap positions but do not flip as one.

    Summary

    needs a lot of work. has potential to be a great graphics engine.
    just needs work on the intrerface.

    "Great for the price"

    December 10, 2007   |   By chrismeador

    Version: EazyDraw 2.3

    Pros

    I use this to make illustrations for math problems (which can sometimes get rather technical) and it is great! I don't have any experience with CAD or vector graphics programs, but the interface is so intuitive that I rarely have to consult the user's manual to figure things out. Also, it exports into many different file formats (including EPS) which is very convenient.

    This is a MUST TRY program for people who want to create vector graphics, technical drawings, or diagrams but don't want to shell out the big bucks for Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw.

    Cons

    I wish the program could export to SVG format. However, it is being actively developed so this feature may be coming in a future release.

    "Steady Improvements"

    November 24, 2007   |   By ACBIV

    Version: EazyDraw 2.4.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been using EazyDraw since January of 2004, and in my view it remains the best app for vector-based drawing in this price range. In early days, there were bugs and the developer always responded promptly to my reports. Though I continue to miss ClarisCAD and ClarisCAD II from years ago, EazyDraw certainly fulfills my requirements.

    "How do you like your bugs?"

    February 06, 2006   |   By tahoerob

    Version: EazyDraw 1.8.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    On the surface, EazyDraw looks great. But, wow, is it buggy! I bought the $20 trial license and am very glad I didn't pony up for the full license. I couldn't get the grid to work no matter how hard I tried. Objects didn't snap properly and there were always alignment problems. I had hoped to use EazyDraw for some basic floorplans, but it quickly proved too frustrating and buggy for such work, so I gave up on it.

    If you need solid drawing functionality, check out Cenon. It's free, seems quite stable, and has allowed me to accomplish everything I wanted to do with EazyDraw.
