SmartDraw lets you create flowcharts, organizational charts, time lines, forms, schematics, floor plans, networks, and more. It is particularly suitable for anyone who needs to quickly and easily create professional-quality drawings-even if theyve never drawn anything before. New features in version 6.0 include FreeForm Drawing, Gradient Colors, Multiple Layers, and One-Click Web Publishing that allows users to instantly publish their drawings to the Web and share their work with others.
Version 6.0 also includes more than 50,000 ready-made images and templates in 11 specialized add-on collections. Each collection was designed for a particular drawing discipline: Business & Charting, Floor Plans & Facilities Design, Network Design, Software Design, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Maps & Geography, Science & Math, Clipart. New collections include the Life & Leisure Clipart Collection, and the Medical & Anatomy Collection, which features textbook-quality anatomical, emergency, and medical images.
The Professional Edition also includes a real-time spelling checker (in nine languages), search and replace, advanced import and export filters, full integration with MS office, and more. A conversion wizard makes it even easier for users of Visio, FlowCharter, and other similar programs to switch to SmartDraw with just a few clicks of the mouse.
It also includes support for importing and exporting EMF files and a button to e-mail the current drawing to a friend (plus a link to the free SmartDraw Viewer).
Note: This 30-day trial lets you choose which edition of SmartDraw youd like to try: Standard ($69), Professional ($129), or Professional Plus with all 50,000 images and templates ($198).
