Ratings and Reviews
Great Tool, great update
I belive this is the most powerful diagramming and idea mapping tool:
formated text on nodes (rtf), and flexible linking arrows toward specific parts of a document. Also when you paste a selection from pdf (text , diagrams and equations) if source is postscript will be rendered with quality and not converted to jpg .
I tend to make large diagrams/maps and this app manage them many times better than the alternatives, even during zooming in and out.
still some minor bugs/misbehaviors but developers deliver updates frequently improving performance and usability.
The idea of an intutitive command driven diagram generation, is so so promising (although the command editor can only be accessed with a command template, and with serious formatting problems). in any case Kudos for this graphing script idea, a lot of potential. I Hope tools to do smart search and visualization will emerge with this.
Seriously? limiting the number of downloads on free templates
The application itself is good but if you are expecting to download a lot of the free templates that are on the site at one time, forget about it. They limit downloads to 1 per month. Come on, the templates are free!!!! Why do you force people to 1 pay for the application then nickle and dime them. Oh the way you can download all of the free templates is to download them 1 at a time per month; 1 free template per month. If you want more, they want you to signup for a recurring change of $24/year and still charge you for the other templates that you may want and that they do not consider as free. Why not charge for all templates and let the free ones be free?
Developer Response ,
Mentioned templates are _additional_ templates that the app allows to import from 3rd party web site. We are not affiliated with them. The app itself has a number of templates which are included into the app. The app has also built-in sets of shapes for various purposes.
Great Program! Great Customer Service!
The program does what it says it does. The new command driven option is nice. I had a simple problem in that all of my diagrams built using the new command driven option were solid black. I emailed the company and received a response within 12 hours. (I needed to hit “restore default” under the style option.) Really quick response. Now everything works as it should. I use the program several times a week to build flow diagrams and will probably use it more with the new command driven option.
