It's a pretty sleek little app so far, however I have been somewhat unable to format flowcharts the way I want so that they do not become too unwieldy. Adding new boxes and such is not obvious to me, because sometimes SmartDraw decides where the new box will go. This isn't ideal if I have already added text to existing boxes.
