Pros: MyDraw is efficient in creating flowcharts and drawing shapes and symbol. It could be a great a cheaper alternative to MS Visio.

Cons: It took me some time to get use to MyDraw and to navigate the software as it is not very intuitive like other solutions.

MyDraw is a great design tool, I used it to create a beautiful logo for my new online businesse.

Pros:
"I find MyDraw a great graphic design tool. It has everything you need to create whatever kind of visual idea you might have. It comes with some pre-designed shapes and objects, but you can customise just about everything, or simply create your own from scratch with the professional tools built within.
The text element comes with many beautiful and interesting font settings, but I especially love the gradient colours customisable features. You can create some amazing shades and colour combinations.
With this program, literally the sky is the limit. It's relatively user friendly, which cuts the learning curve short ther than expected.
After trying many other programs to create a logo for my new businsse, I quickly created one that I found overall satisfying to my vision, it looks beautiful.
This is a program I would definately recommend.

Cons: If you are not a professionally trained graphic designer/artist, you need to dedicate some time to learn about the professional terms and expressions to successfully operate the software. I found the most complications i had with saving and importing various file types, that took me a little bit of researching and trial and error before getting the hang of it. Occasionally I wasn't able to recover from an error and had to restart my project. However, like with everything new, I expected some time needed for learning the full operation of the software. In overall, I was glad I did and I was happy to have a truly professional tool to work with.

Overall: I finally achieved my goal, which was to create a beautiful and functional logo for my new businesse's upcoming website.

Pros: I like my draw this set of software

Just because he has templates for these functions, I've loved him!

1. Organization chart
2. Flow chart
3. Propaganda Manual DM Propaganda ...

Overall: There are several reasons:
1 cheaper than some of the known professional flowchart software, affordable but functional without losing this software
There are a lot of boards that I can use so that I can finish the flow chart I want very quickly
3. Also supports multiple languages (very fortunate to have my favorite Chinese)

An amazing technical drawing application with incredible ease of use at a very affordable price.

Pros: 1) Very intuitive to use and low learning curve.
2) Amazing templates included that can be reused over and over for multiple project types.
3) Drawings can be saved into various file formats including PDF.
4) Can be used to draw multiple types of drawings (e.g. flow charts, business processes, family trees, organization hierarchy)
5) Application cost is so reasonable that it can be purchased by my clients and they can modify the processes on their own as needed.

Cons: 1) A bit difficult to import to other business processes software.
2) Was not able to save to generic XML format file (.xml)
3) No option to add attributes to each relevant diagram object.

Overall: Ease of use and value for the money. Provided templates saved many hours of work.

Pros: I work with systems analysis and use MyDraw to create my flowcharts, I think he is very competent in what he does, since the day I started using it, I did not feel the need for another tool. I create my own items and reuse them very easily in other projects. I can even put a QR Code with the address where my flowchart is so that it is easily found when it is necessary to edit it.

Cons: The only drawback I had with MyDraw was ease of use, initially I had a little trouble using it, but after a few hours I got used to its features.

Overall: MyDraw has streamlined my day-to-day work of creating my flowcharts.

Pros: I liked the main dashboard. It is very clean and minimalistic. I also love the templates available and how easy it is to get started mapping things out.

Cons: although there were some very useful templates I wish there were some templates for marketing, ecommerce, and maybe even software or chatbot flowcharts.

Overall: The ability to easily communicate a plan/strategy with my coworkers.

Pros: Easy fast graphics and drawing. File are easy to manipulate and a price that will not break the bank should I decide t upgrade.

Cons: Due to the fact that I have only used this software for a few simple tasks and have yet to find out its full potential I have no problems at this time.

Overall: Less programs to manage to do the same tasks

I had a little flow chart to do and was glad to be able to test MyDraw and did much more then.

Pros: A long time ago I knew Visio and kept quite a bad memory about it.
With MyDraw I found some example charts and only had to modify some ! It was so fast to do that I did much more charts than I planed to. For the first time I made a nice network diagram and thrown away my old paper drawing. I saw then that I was able to import Gedcom files to have my own family tree from an online site, a nice use of this backup file.
I'm only at the beginning of my use of this soft, there are a lot of tools I didn't used yet.
I plan to use it for some internet pages as I can export as html, maybe I will be able to start some Autocad project to with .dxf export. Visio format is there too if I find this soft again ...
There is even a mailing function, maybe a good idea for flyers diffusion.
I feel like it is a fusion of Viso, Corel Draw and Word, I think I like it.

Cons: The main negative thing for me is because I'm french ... and for now I have to stay with everything in english ...

Overall: At first it toke me such a little time to do what I wanted to do that I use it much more than I thought I will.
Now I take time trying to go "deeper" and always find something else to do, even a set of lights diagrams for my DSLR photo studio.
It will now help me to make the complete domotic diagram I have to do for home.

After all I will spend a lot of time on the software, maybe as much I was "afraid" I would have to, but doing much more drawing than I thought I ever would.

Awesome alternate to Viso and it just works!

Pros: MyDraw is light and fast, it also comes with built-in icons but you can also import stencil packs too! I can even e-mail my work to another user. MyDraw has just the right amount to not overwhelm you yet allows you to create great charts or anything else you want to visually display.

Cons: I would like to have a way of importing more stencil pack formats. I also would like to be able quickly auto-discover a network and have MyDraw reflect it.

The program is pretty good for creating diagrams or charts and easy to use after some time.

Pros: I really like the feature for network diagrams, with its symbols, it is really easy to understand, even if you show the diagram to people who are not too familiar with computers. You can also create flyers or certificates pretty easy, the selection is not too large but it should be enough for most flyers or certificates. I also like that you can create your own chart starting with a blank document.

Cons: I think that the program is a bit hard to understand at first, especially because there are so many charts you can choose from. If you don't really know what chart you have to use, you will have to take a look at every chart to find the best one for your purpose. Overall, I don't have many things to complain about when using this program.

I more than one year periodically use a program MyDraw when I create block diagrams, tables, charts.

Pros: MyDraw is a very nice program. Works fast and has tons of options to configure your drawings in every aspect. It satisfies all my diagram drawing needs. Great alternative of MS Visio at a reasonable price and also works on MAC!

Cons: I would love to see additional templates and there is really a need for more shape libraries.

Pros: Found it easy to replace most of the MS Visio functionality. It comes with a large set of preset templates that cover most uses.

Cons: Does not have swim lanes by default. However I found it easy to create a few templates that work just fine.

Overall: I do not have to buy a subscription to the new MS-Office to keep my software current. This is a viable alternative to their drawing products

Pros: Easy to use and self-contained. A large number of templates and libraries of shapes suitable for both professionals and non-professionals alike. You start with a predefined shape or from a blank drawing. From there you have a lot of options to arrange, insert, manipulate, review and mail your flowchart. The interface customization allows for different UI Themes and languages. You can even alternate in between the trendy ribbon and command bars. I personally prefer the clarity of the ribbon look. The finished work can be completely or partially saved in many popular formats such as Visio, AutoCad, GEDCOM, PDF, Raster( like PNG, JPG, BMP and GIF), SVG, HTML and others. MyDraw is responsive, easy to use and it gives me a professional result whether I produce a quick or a more detailed flowchart combining many elements. it is available for Windows and Mac. Highly recommended.

Cons: Really, not much at all. With the latest version 2.0.3, I still wish the software would load a bit quicker but overall that does not affect its performance in any way. Also, I wish I could load the external AutoCad, PDF and HTML files into the MYDraw and not just save the internally made work in before mentioned formats but I hope the next versions will address that issue if possible.

Overall: A real-time saver. I am able to quickly create flowcharts for different purposes, ranging from personal to highly professional presentations. I benefited from the ability to export my work in many different formats I work with on a regular basis. The HTML and PDF formats are especially helpful. It is important to me to be able to use predefined shapes and templates along with my own media and to easily edit and combine them into a finished product that really incorporates within the rest of my professional and personal Eco-system.

Pros: If you've used Visio before, you'd have an easy time transitioning to MyDraw, as the interface and the features are highly-similar. The program can even handle loading and saving of files in Visio format. Not only that, it is able to handle the GEDCOM format for family tree diagrams, making it ideal for genealogy enthusiasts. You can also choose from a large library of drawing shapes, symbols, and templates. Layout isn't a problem, too - the program has auto layout options that allow you to play around with the best presentation for your drawing. If you can't find an appropriate drawing shape for your needs, you can even request the development team to program one for you, though that comes at a cost, of course. If you're done with your drawing, you can also save it as a PNG, JPEG or BMP file, or even as a vector file. Other printing options are also available as well - high resolution, margins, orientation, you name it, the program has it. The best thing about printing is that you can also specify shapes to be non-printable, allowing use of comments within your diagram. Rich text support, spell-check, and the ability to send a drawing to an email contact from within the program are other great features of MyDraw. I didn't regret downloading this program - it's well worth the effort, without the hefty price tag of Visio.

Cons: I wish I could use this on my Linux box, as I want to use just a single program on my machines. However, only Windows and Mac OS are supported. Chances of the developer putting a Linux version is slim, as there are also open-source alternatives to the program on Linux, so not really hoping that they'll address this issue, which is probably a non-issue to them. Another, albeit minor, issue is that there's no help file within the program itself - you have to download a PDF or CHM file. Other than these two things, I've found the program quite useful for my diagramming work on Windows.

Overall: With the help of MyDraw, I was able to complete a network diagram for a client without much effort. I'd ordinarily use one of the free, but limited, diagramming tools available online, as I find Visio really too expensive for project-based work.

An incredibly versatile application that does indeed make working on graphic tasks a true pleasure!

Pros: Nowadays there are literally tons of programs and apps that aim at enhancing productivity and making the user's life easier -now HOLD THAT THOUGHT- the question is, is that really so?

Well, not really no... Much of the software out there seems very promising on the "spec sheet" but when one looks "under the hood", little substance is actually there and in some situations even if the software is totally sleek, the provided Customer Support often leaves much to be desired! There are a few exceptions though and Nevron developed a gem called MyDraw that is most definitely enhancing productivity and makes the user's life a whole lot easier... All that combined with a superior Customer Service!

Whether you are a professional or you just occasionally work on graphic jobs such as brochures and pamphlets, flyers or newsletters, MyDraw with its intuitive interface is the right instrument to have in your "toolbox".

I frequently compile and edit business flowcharts of different types but last week, while I was enjoying the glare of my desktop late at night, my wife passed by with a nice cup of herbal tea and she discovered that the software I was using happens to include great templates for bar, restaurant and drinks menus and right on the spot she "commissioned" a job for the Valentine party... Creating great looking menus was a breeze with MyDraw!

Cons: One really need to look very hard to find cons in MyDraw as the list of pros is quite long, in my case I have never been a fan of ribbon interface, however I must admit that in this particular application the ribbon layout makes sense as it permits easy access to the vast array of features packed in a relatively small footprint!

Overall: Well, you can read all about that in my review which reflect real facts, not fictional ones.

I truly enjoy working with MyDraw and it gets the job done in a fraction of the time if I were to use alternative utilities.

Pros: MyDraw is a much cheaper alternative for Microsoft's Visio. It's got enough templates to help you start and finish your projects. There are also many shapes that you can easily drag here and there to achieve what you want.

Cons: Help is available on the product's website, but one that you could use in the software, when offline, would be a good idea.

Pros: The learning curve is trivial. Especially for someone like me who used Visio for many years. I love the fact that unlike Visio, I do not have to wrestle with MyDraw all the time in order to achieve the effects I want. I took some old existing Vision drawing and MyDraw imported them with just few minor issues that I was able to fix quickly. Then, continuing with MyDraw was a lot easier than with Visio. Since I mainly do simple graphing, MyDraw is the best tool for me. I checked some of the alternatives but they were more expensive and I thought they were an overkill for what I needed and that they required much more learning and were more complicated to use.
I also like the fact MyDraw is installed on my Mac and is not a web app such as some of the alternatives.

Cons: Few issues I found:
* I couldn't find an easy way to connect lines or arrows from some locations to some other locations in the graph (it works well for most obvious locations you'd expect).
* There were few incidents that the software crashed. It happens often after I exported the drawing to another format. However, the export itself succeeded and reopening MyDraw works well and in most cases, (I learned that it's best to save the drawing before trying to export so the last operations are not lost).
* Starting MyDraw (compared to other apps on my Mac) takes a relatively too long.

Overall: Being able to draw diagrams quickly and attach them to my documents.

Easy to use, features above board, makes making flow charts and diagrams fun again.

Pros: This chart designer is very easy to use, even though it offers really professional options.
Already the diagram templates should be enough in most cases to begin immediately with the insertion of the pictures and dates.
If you prefer to create your own diagram, you can do it in a very short time thanks to the very clear interface.
By dragging and dropping, you can drag all sorts of shape templates, of which there are plenty, onto the surface, insert text or graphics, and
Let's go to the next field. Even animation forms are available. This allows you to post its results in many different formats like
e.g. storing all common image formats and html documents, there are many possibilities for the result, e.g. also to install in a homepage.
For me, this program is definitely recommended !

Cons: For me, the functionality is quite sufficient. Quite nice would be maybe a few 3D shapes. But you can also import your own forms.

Overall: The easiest way I know to create a pedigree.

Pros: Features are as good or better than many high-end drawing programs.
The ribbon interface is intuitive and familiar.
Works offline.
Simple diagramming or complex technical drawings - it's easy to use and produces great results.
Visio import is accurate, so my existing library of Visio drawings can all be used.
Support is first class friendly, helpful and prompt.

Cons: One license covers only one computer. It would be great if one license covered two computers (desktop and laptop). Currently I have to deactivate/reactivate each time I need to use a mobile platform.
It doesn't appear to have 3-D capability for shapes (extrude, edge bevel) and text (embossing, engraving), but I'm still exploring.

It'll be a bit before MyDraw is "there"

Pros: MyDraw's UI is welcoming and friendly, and if all the default settings work for you on EVERY drawing (which they won't), you'll likely be in heaven!

Cons: No part of the software works ~quite~ right. Don't get me wrong, it's close more often than not, but it's not ~quite~ ready for prime time yet. Most options are buried in obscure menus, there are glitches hidden among most functions, and I have yet to get a single quick-key command to work correctly on a Mac. Despite being touted as THE Visio solution for Mac, it's very obviously a port over from a Windows-designed product, and a lackluster one at that.

Overall: The hope was that MyDraw would be a solid replacement for Visio on the Mac. It's just not ready yet.

Easy to use design program with many great features.

Pros: I have enjoyed using MyDraw since it has many templates to help you get started on creating your design. Then the program has numerous pre designed shapes to help continue with your project.

The titles on the tabs at the top clearly label the different functions inside them, and the layout of tools are placed well, making working on a design very easy.

I like the barcode and QR code creator, it is a nice feature for someone wanting to try them out.

MyDraw has various export options, which give you choices on how to use your creations.

Cons: The program loads a little slow.
I would like to see more color in the design of the "Home" page.
More templates would always be a plus.

MyDraw software has been wonderful! Simple to use and easy to learn.

Pros: Very simple software to learn along with many templates to allow you to do whatever you may need or want to do. MyDraw is wonderful software and anything from Blank Drawings to Network diagrams are simple to create and it takes so little time to learn that it is

Overall: It is a new software for me that allows me to be so much more productive than before when creating things took so much longer before..

Pros: MyDraw is very complete, offering all necessary tools to make numerous drawings very fast and with minimal effort. The learning curve is also not steep, as many of its features are found in other programs you use daily. (word, excel, ..) The supplied templates a fantastic and help you to get going with MyDraw in an easy way. I was able to make professionally looking drawings almost immediately.

Overall: Easy and fast

A well designed software package and is available at a very fair price for a perpetual licence.

Pros: MyDraw is a fully featured software package that should prove invaluable for those who need to produce diagrams and charts for both offline and online use. It contains all the usual drawing tools and chart types and is easy to use with built in help and online support available.

The installer is only about 43MB in size and installation is straightforward with an initial 30 day trial.

Outstanding features are:

- A large range of templates (flowcharts/org charts/network diagrams etc.) are available from either the software itself or from download from the MyDraw web site: https://www.mydraw.com/templates/

- Diagrams and Charts may be imported from Visio and exported to PDF/PNG/JPG/SVG formats.

- A mail merge facility to import data from ODBC/Excel data sources and then send directly to a list of mail recipients.

Cons: There could be some additional import options for the diagrams/charts (apart from importing from Visio).

Pros: Mydraw is a surprisingly powerful program that allows you to do a lot more than you would initially think possible. If you have the time and the skills, it's capable of producing highly detailed professional layouts. And with all the templates included it's possible for any beginner to jump in and accomplish simple projects in a very quick and easy way, making it great for any level of use. The library of premade vectors is also very useful, and for the price it's a great alternative to other programs.

Cons: I think the only real con that I've noticed is that there is a little bit of a learning curve, especially if you're used to other programs. But once you've taken the time to explore the program and play around with its different functionalities, it becomes fairly intuitive and straight forward.

Overall: The program helped me create layouts and flow sharts very easily, without over complicating the process.

Pros: 1. It's in Microsoft Office style.
2. The price is extraordinary. Just try to buy Visio...
3. It is easy to use.

Cons: The software is fairly intuitive, but I just cannot find any Help or User's Guide in it in case things get complicated :)...

Overall: It is very cost effective and easy to use. Plus, there are many templates to help you out.

Pros: I like the ease of integration into my existing thought process and documentation workflow. Becoming acquainted with the software is intuitive, and it has become a very useful tool for me.

Cons: I work with other project managers / technology leads, who provide files in other formats. I'd like to see more interoperability with other popular software.

Pros: I like that it has good functionality at a great price. When I changed computers and had a license question, I received an email from a real person! Their customer service is unbelievably good. Any time I've written with a question, I have received a quick, personal reply!

Cons: There was a little bit of a learning curve at first, since the software worked differently than Visio. However, I was able to complete my project fairly quickly with a little experimentation.

Overall: I needed to create a somewhat complex flow chart and would have used Visio, but I now have a Mac, so Visio wasn't an option. Happily, I was able to complete that project (and others since) using this software.

Affordable, full-featured Visio alternative

Pros: It was very easy to pick up and start making charts. It has everything I need from a Visio-like program at a fraction of the cost.

Cons: Just being nit-picky, but the Mac version looks like a Windows app. This does not detract from usability at all though.

Overall: Fulfilled my need for chart making at a fraction of the cost of Visio.

Pros: Huge precreated library of illustrations, excellent drawing features, easy usage, great support, usable features.

Overall: When I purchased the MyDraw license, I didn't guessed what is the application real power, I think it was just a schema drawing app for low budget, why not. But after few hours of usage, I experienced the knowledge of Visio, the flexibility and many good features of some serious vector drawing applications. The next surprise was the huge library of predefined illustrations. I don't need to use other sources from the internet for planning my house interior and the network cabling design.

I am a software engineer, and I use MyDraw every week to my job, with absolute satisfaction. This software is value for the money. At the moment I am excited about the new version and the new features.

Pros: Works well as a Mac solution for drawings and for sharing PC created Visio assets. Workflows are productive and can in some cases be more efficient than initial appearances.

Native Mac operation is probably the single biggest point; no need to run a VM to work on drawings.

Cons: There are a few V 1.0 teething issues; the selection of property states does not seem to persist on some of the shapes menus and the bounding box for clipping is not honoured. Nothing I would describe as being bad enough to abandon the product.

Support was friendly and willing to listen and improved the overall perception of the product.

Overall: Able to create both simple and layered designs and leverage investment from PC platform without having to run through extra steps and system modifications.

Pros: There are tons of Flowchart apps on the market today. However if you're looking for a program that's simple, stable and easy to use with reasonable price, this is your program. You will not get what you paid for with this price on the market.

Cons: May need to add in 'user guide / online help' since there are so many functions/options to play with on My Draw.

Overall: Simplify work process. Easy to amplify Process.

Pros: The general advantages I can see are:
a) General ease to define processes
b) Value for Money
c) Ease of transfers to other file formats

Cons: A few things missing but not of great significance
A plus would be to include a few more templates of public administrations (budgeting, planning, M&E, programme management, etc.

Overall: Better presentations of workflows and general business processes
