Over the usual elements that you can see in any of similar solutions, Edraw Max provides a full power of modern interfaces, huge, smartly organized library of primitives, along with many examples and tutorials. When you just start working with a new Edraw Max diagram, you're asked to select its "kind" and the software provides you with the corresponding primitives. Of course, you can always load more primitives or even search them by name. The kinds of diagrams available in Edraw Max cover all the areas you can imagine about schemes and diagrams: Flowcharts, DB architecture, Organization Charts, Mind Maps, Networks and much more, and there are several sections in the shapes library for each kind of diagrams, as well as several examples that come with the software. You can save your own shapes in the shape gallery for further usage. As for drawing itself, Edraw Max provides a really convenient vector editor, with handy shapes grouping, locking and organizing, selection and zooming; you can control all the parameters (colors, fonts, and lines) of every shape, either yours or from the library. All the beauty pictures you've designed can be easily exported and printed in a strict correspondence with the screen picture.
Edraw Max is rather a lightweight yet incredibly powerful business graphic software that helps you with all of your drawing and graphing needs - from organizations and flow charts - to database designs, home floor, fashion design. Software developers can also use Edraw to draw UML (Unified Modeling Language) diagrams to visualize their designs.
Great value for the money! If flow diagrams are the only thing you plan to use it for, Visio might be a bit of overkill. If you want to be using it for other things too though it would be better value for money. Visio is too expensive for my taste, and I have found a good flowcharting software. I just wanted to write Edraw is great value for its money! It is very easy to use!
