How To Draw a Diagram

"Chain" Mode

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.

The "chain" mode connects every new shape to the previous one. If you want to create a new branch in your diagram, you just deselect the current chain and select the new shape, which will be the root for this branch, turn the "chain" mode on again and then continue adding shapes. The "chain" auto connection mode is convenient for drawing flowcharts and business process diagrams.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming software provides vector shapes and connector tools for quick and easy drawing diagrams for business, technology, science and education.

Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM enhanced with solutions from ConceptDraw Solution Park to create diagrams to present and explain structures, process flows, logical relationships, networks, design schemes and other visually organized information and knowledge.


Hybrid Network Topology →

Every corporate network is unique, though there are guidelines and best practices in developing networks. As it is quite difficult to implement a pure topology within a company, using a hybrid network topology is considered a better solution. As a rule, such network assembles advantages and features of source topologies. This diagram is an example of the Hybrid network. This type of network topology means a conjunction of other network topologies. Such as star-bus, ring-mesh topologies, etc. It should be obviously diverse networks. The final computer network inherits both advantages and disadvantages of its ingredients. Using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution including vector graphic libraries and templates one can develop professional custom network diagrams of any topology and complexity.Hybrid Network Topology *

ERD Symbols and Meanings →

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling. An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.ERD Symbols and Meanings

Bus Network Topology →

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work. This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.Bus Network Topology *

Geo Map — United States of America Map →

No one can imagine a geography class without such educational stuff as a geo map or a globe. As for one of the biggest countries in North America, the United States of America Map is present in every American school or college. It’s easier to remember all the states if you look on the map more often. The following sample represents the map of USA. This precise map has names of all states of America. The different colors which are used to indicate each state add the visuality and brightness to the whole map. The ConceptDraw USA Maps solution - one of a family of ConceptDraw Maps solutions. Any country invokes a big piece of data: geographical, political, statistical, etc. A simple way of representing this data is to design maps that will show a certain item in relation to a particular area of Earth.United States of America Map
