Try Edraw Mac Diagram Software

Positive Comment by Larrylarry
about Edraw Max Jun 2016

I was looking for an easy-to-use alternative to Microsoft Visio for Mac, and a friend of mine recommended Edraw diagram software for Mac. It is a very user-friendly software, and I have been using it since then. It looks nice for presentations with non-technical upper management. Importantly, it can import the vsdx file then save too.

I have used Edraw to design some flyers and courseware. Love it because it is quite easy to use. The built-in shapes and examples really help me a lot. I don't have any drawing skill but I can also design beautiful pictures. Amazing. Big thanks to Edraw.
