ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology

Connection Points

How should diagramming software work? Is it possible to develop a diagram as quickly as the ideas come to you?

The innovative ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology included in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful drawing tool that changes the way diagrams are produced. While making the drawing process easier and faster.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful tool that helps you create a process map diagram quickly and easily. Fine-tuning the objects in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to create a really professional finished article. ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology gives drawing connectors a smart behavior that provides quick and precise placement, allows for easy changes and automatic rearrangement.

A connection point is a special symbol on drawing shapes in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. The connection point is intended as a target for connectors when working with objects in your diagram. By default, it lies exactly in the center of every shape, you can see this when the connection tool is selected.

There are additional invisible connection points in the center of each object’s side to facilitate making connections.

When using the connector tool you can make a connection by selecting a connection point of one object to another objects connection point. To verify you have hit the connection point it becomes displayed as a cross sign. Now your objects are connected! When moving objects inside of your diagram, connectors will stay pinned to the object’s center.

If you need to draw your connector from a specific point on an object that is not its center, you can create your own connection point. Just start drawing your connector starting at the newly selected connection point. The start point will become red; this means that a new connection point has been created. Now your connector is pinned to this exact point. This works if you create a new connection point at an object’s border.

You can easily disconnect a connector from any point and connect it to another one. The first connection point will be deleted automatically.

There is also a Point tool, this can be used if you want to start your connector inside or outside the shape you wish to connect to.

Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network Examples →

Studying informatics demands knowledge in the area of computer networks as well. The most famous world network, Internet, is an example of wide area network (WAN) topology that connects devices spread on any distance. Unlike other smaller networks that are limited to a building or to a campus, WAN is almost limitless. This WAN (wide area network) diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. It shows a telecommunication network that covers a large geographical area connecting several settlements. This type of networks is commonly used by business and government institutions. Using the WANs enables them quickly communicate information between remote geographical points. To reproduce this network diagram, you will need the means, provided by ConceptDraw Computer and Network Diagrams solution.Wide area network (WAN) topology. <br>Computer and Network Examples *

Types of Flowchart - Overview →

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps. Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.Types of Flowchart - Overview *

Flowchart design. Flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons →

When thinking about data visualization, one of the first tools that comes to mind is a flowchart design. You can find flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons easily on the Internet, but it might take time to systematize this information. Nevertheless, once you start flowcharting, you’ll love its simplicity and efficiency. This diagram consists from standard flowchart symbols, approved by ANSI (American National Standard Institute) for drawing flowcharts. A flowchart is a diagram that represents a step-by-step algorithm of any process, displaying the process stages as boxes that are connected with arrows. Flowchart design makes it clear and readable. Flowchart designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software allows to make attractive and clear process presentation, it makes interpretation of the business process flow fresh and versatile. Great flowchart design view is a big advantage over the diagram created manually on a paper.Flowchart design
