"Slow Visio replica"

September 17, 2010  |  By mwier

 |  Version: Edraw Max 5.3


The program looks and behaves like Visio.
It has built-in support for tables & PDF export.


The program runs much slower than Visio 2007.
I didn?t found a way to make a directed connection between two shapes ? not just a connection between two points from them.
The program failed to open correctly not very complex Visio file (vdx).


The program runs slowly. In particular:
Page scrolling is slow.
Shape rotation, resizing and dragging are slow.
Selecting objects is slow.

Visio 2007 performs the above actions much faster.

The program can export diagrams into PDF files, but the exported shapes are raster graphics. Because of this the diagrams may not look crisp when they are printed from an exported PDF file.

I didn?t found a way to place an arrow in the middle of a connector (there is a ?mid-arrow? shape ? a line segment, whose end arrow points the middle, but it is not a connector).

I didn?t found a way to re-layout shapes ? a Visio feature which can automatically rearrange complex diagrams and in some cases make them more visually comprehensible.

I didn?t found a motivating reason to switch from Visio to Edraw Max, because the latter lacks originality and performs worse than Visio.
