SmartDraw Reviews

Kinda neat, but it has some troublesome "features"

Negative Review by Tavo
about SmartDraw Aug 2012

I tried SmartDraw because of its timeline feature. At a first glance, it seemed like a good replacement for the squareness and complexity of Visio until I tried to adjust the timeframe: SmartDraw was reluctant to accept my input. I couldn't obtain a timeline with the timeframe I needed, but a timeline with whatever timeframe SmartDraw was pleased with.

Another "feature" came along when trying to save a drawing: the "Save As..." dialog window took ages to open and finally came up with an application crash. Also, it didn't recognize an already opened file, producing a new blank window... and crashing.

I recommend to stick with Visio or using SmartDraw at your own risk... maybe you could be lucky enough
