Editors' Review

by   / April 29, 2012

Diagrams can often organize information and get your point across in ways that text alone just can't. yEd Graph Editor is an easy-to-use tool that lets you create diagrams, flow charts, and many other visual representations of processes and relationships. It's a fairly sophisticated program and new users might have to spend some time getting acquainted with it, but the payoff -- an endless number of graphic possibilities -- is well worth it.

yEd Graph Editor has an attractive interface, with a tabbed work area that lets you have multiple files open at once. Several aspects of the interface are modular, allowing you to close them when not needed. An overview module shows a broad overview of the graph, while the neighborhood view shows details of a selected area, and structure view shows graph items in a tree hierarchy. The palette allows you to choose from a wide variety of shapes and connecting lines, and there are objects including people, computer networking hardware, UML objects, and more. Charts can be saved in a variety of image formats, as well as PDF and HTML files. We found it easy to get started with yEd Graph Editor, but referring to the built-in Help file provided us with plenty of thorough instructions for making the most of the program. We think that yEd Graph Editor is a great choice for anyone needing to create a graphic representation of information, be it a family tree, decision tree, flow chart, organizational chart, user instructions, or any number of other possibilities.

yEd Graph Editor installs and uninstalls without issues.
