Microsoft Office Visio Alternatives with feature 'vector-graphics'

    As Visio is Microsoft's commercial solution for professional diagramming and workflow drafting, it has many alternatives just like other parts of the Microsoft Office Suite. These alternatives share many of the features found in Visio, such as support for scalable vector graphics files so that your charts and diagrams don't suffer any loss in quality when resized.

    If you would rather use alternatives to Visio that are free and web-based, there are viable options that can be used to replace Visio with minimal loss in functionality for major amounts of convenience.

      It is hard to tell you that when I haven't started using it yet, but it appears to have the functionality I require without the expensive price, for sure.

      Draw is very similar to Visio. It's basically the free and open source version of it. You can create flowcharts with it like you can in Visio, and other things you can't do with Visio. Although Visio is more focused at creating flowcharts & diagrams and does very well at it, it's extremely expensive while Draw is free and open source.

      It's free and open source, while Visio is proprietary and expensive.
