Diagram Designer is a powerful vector graphics editor which is written to quickly design flowcharts, diagrams and slide shows. Unlike many other diagram creators, apart from being helpful for beginners, it comes with a slew of elements which professionals may require while designing system structures. Diagram designer is not as powerful as MS Visio, but offers a handful of pre-designed shapes and graphics to create Unified Modeling Language diagrams, such as, Flowchart, State diagram, Activity diagram, etc., without having to define data sets for mapping them to diagram manually.
You will find a huge library for UML diagram symbols and shapes to design even those diagrams which need shapes of different modeling techniques. Diagram Designer can export diagram into WMF, EMF, BMP, JPG, PNG and PCX format. Along with diagram creation tools, it comes with simple graph plotter to plot mathematical expressions, so you wont have to define axis manually neither it requires you to set labels and other graph elements to properly place values.
By default, it shows Flow Chart shapes in diagram navigator present on right sidebar. However, you can choose to open different template pallete from right-click menu. All the shapes and other diagram elements are seen at the right side. Before adding a specific shape, do check its description in order to map data values correctly.
To edit the sample text of inserted diagram shape, double-click it to specify required elements. For instance, if you’re designing UML Class diagram, you need to mention the attributes and functions. The Diagram text editor shows text codes to apply different type of styling over the text. For example, you may want to make Class text look bold, add separator between attributes and functions, insert interlink link, etc.
Diagram objects are seen at left side of the window. The tree structured list will help you to easily search the object which you’ve inserted in the diagram. From Diagram menu, you can enable only required layers of diagram to edit them, change default text font, bring up page properti4es, connect links and set layer colors.
On the product page, you will find more Template Palettes for many other types of diagrams. It works on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
