 |  Version: LanFlow Net Diagrammer 6.26.2060

Pros

Easy to get going
Plenty of options

Cons

Nothing really

Summary

This enabled me to do a diagram of our small network quite easily. If I had an on-going need to diagram systems I would seriously consider purchasing it.

"Great product, a little too expensive."

September 11, 2006  |  By Jerrod777

 |  Version: LanFlow Net Diagrammer 5.07 build 1825

Pros

This program has good features, great pictures, and helps to show how a network is setup. Unlike most flowchart programs, it is geared towards networking diagramming which is a plus.

Cons

The price is a little too high for the average user. It would help to bring the cost down, or give out a cheaper or freeware version with some limited usability for smaller networks. I won't spend $50 on the program, and neither will our school.

"Easy to use, demo is limited in spite of statements otherwise."

January 29, 2005  |  By ComputingTeacher

 |  Version: LanFlow Net Diagrammer 4.19

Pros

Intuitive interface.

Objects obvious.

Labelling is easy to do.

Linking to different documents is easy to do.

Allowed me to quickly diagram a system (20 switches/hubs and 140 plus computers plus 3 servers plus numerous printers) that has no formal documentation in place and scant meaningful data represented in other forms. This will come into my toolkit as soon as the school fronts the money for it.

Cons

In spite of claims that the demo is a full working version with no limitations, there is a limit to the number of hyperlinks you can insert into a document and by reading between the lines of the dialogue box, also on the number of objects embedded in a single document.

Free and unfettered should be free and unfettered, not slyly limited in an area where you don't expect most folks to go

What's new in version 5.09.1850
  • Fixed a bug within the Page Set-up screen when measurement units are set to metric. When setting a metric paper size, then subsequently adjusting the page width or height with the spin controls, you were unable to return to the predefined page size by setting it's dimension.
  • Fixed a bug within the Page Set-up screen when measurement units are set to metric. When setting a metric paper size, the measurement units did not exactly reflect the true size of the paper.
  • Fixed a backwards compatibility issue when loading a diagram created with a previous version of the software. The new "stitching margin" was not being set correctly to maintain precisely the same margins and clipping that the diagram had prior. Diagrams saved prior to 5.09 used hidden stitching margins that exactly reflected the minimum margin requirements of the printer or output device. In 5.09 the stitching margin was exposed to the user in the Page Set-up screen and permitted to be set large enough to achieve printer independence for poster diagrams (defaulting so for new diagrams). However, diagrams saved in earlier versions were being automatically converted to a default stitching margin designed to provide printer-independence in most cases. But the result was similar to changing printers for the existing diagrams. Page divisions could be slightly altered and layout could be affected in some cases. This has been "fixed" by keeping minimal stitching margins for diagrams that were created prior to v5.09. In effect, when loading an old diagram, the stitching margins are set to zero, then allowed to expand to the minimum permissible for the printer, exactly matching the prior versions, and keeping the layout unchanged for the same printer, paper, and orientation. This comes at the expense of old diagrams remaining printer-dependent until you enlarge the stitching margin intentionally and re-adjust the layout.
  • Fixed a backwards compatibility issue when loading a diagram created with a previous version of the software. The new version was clipping diagram data at the page margins, whereas in older vesions, clipping occured only at the stitching margins (the extreme printable edge of the paper depending on the device. Users who took advantage of this fact created diagrams with objects outside of the margins but still within the stitching margins of the page, remaining visible on the printed or exported output. But the new version clipped these objects to the actual margins set by the user and thereby created a backwards compatibility issue. This release restores the clipping to the stitching margin. This remains an improvement for newer diagrams because the stitching margins exceed the hard device-dependent margins and are therefore more portable. But for old diagrams loaded with the new software, stitching margins are set to the hard margins and are therefore clipped identically as when they were created and saved.
  • A prior bug has been fixed more thoroughly. That bug resulted in unusually large or improper page margins getting set when creating a new diagram from an old template file. The affect was usually an inappropriately large margin at the bottom or right side of the page. A better fix has been implemented that retains the error checking capability (self adjusting to printers which require larger stitching margins) but does not go awry with the older style templates.
  • A bug has been fixed that could cause an extra page (or more) to appear in diagrams for no reason, particularly after using Page Set-up. The problem was more common with some printers and paper sizes than others. No such extraneous pages should occur any longer. However, because you can now define a page size larger than the physical paper supported by your printer, it is still possible to get extra (appropriate) page divisions, even those which can be indiscernably small.
  • An issue was resolved to increase convenience and decrease confusion resulting from chainging page size. When you changed a page size in the Page Set-up screen to a true paper size such as from Letter size to Legal (another size also supported by your printer), that change did not automatically transfer to the printer set-up. This resulted in an added page division that wasn't expected. To remove the added page division, you had to go to Printer Set-up and change to legal size there as well. This change now occurs automatically, provided two conditions are met, (1) the new page size must be a true known paper size (the paper name appears in the description box), and (2) the current printer supports an equivalent paper size.
  • The minimimum (stitching) margin appears to change after your set it. This is correct behavior, though it may require some clarification and a "fix" in a future release. If you set a small stitching margin, such as zero, it will be increased to the printer's smallest required margin on all four edges of the page based on the printer, the paper, and the orientation of the printer set-up. If you set the stitching margin large enough that it does not need to be adjusted, this will not occur and your diagram will be printer-independent. This continues to cause confusion (understandably), especially when applied to diagrams created in earlier versions of the software. For new diagrams, it's best to leave the stitching margin at least as large as it by default. When loading older diagrams, it is best to leave the stitching margin alone - once you change it, you may need to re-arrange your diagram to make sure nothing is too close to an edge where it may no longer be printed. Also when loading older diagrams, you may want to dispense with printer-independence by setting the stitching margins to their absolute minimums. This was how prior versions printed, so you can restore the margins of older diagrams by setting the stitching margin to zero in Page Set-up. It won't stay zero in most cases, but rather will restore the minimums supported by the printer device. This remains valid until the printer, paper, OR orientation (portrait/landscape) is changed, at which point you would have to repeat the process to assure minimal stitching margins.
  • Added an automatic switch to english (inches) to/from metric (cm) in the Page Set-up screen based on the paper size selected. This will affect only this screen, but upon making a change and leaving the screen, it will offer to change the global unit display option as well.
