MS Visio Look a Like Diagrams


ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, being a great alternative to MS Visio on Mac, supports import of MS Visio files as well as swim-lane diagrams, flowcharts, project charts, orgcharts, cause-and-effect diagrams, decision tree charts, graphs, schemes, maps, plans and many other diagram types, which all can be created within a short period of time having the solutions available to be downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE.

Let’s imagine you created some network diagram in order to describe the existing network structure. Physical network diagram is known to be used for presenting Telecommunications data (such as cable length) carrying a capacity or telecommunication type, servers with names, IP address (if it’s static), server role as well as domain name, location of network equipment (such as hubs, switches, modems, routers, bridges and printers) and the number of network users. You can always continue improving the way this diagram looks, importing it to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and so, using the existing tools, which can be found in the so called “solutions” from ConceptDraw STORE. In this way, you can always make it possible to make the already made diagram look so much better, exploring the stencil libraries and picking the great as well as professionally looking design symbols for completing the drawing.

Same about making other drawings. You can make Process and Instrumentation Drawing, Process Flow Diagram, EPC Diagram, Basic Flowchart, TQM Diagram, Cause and Effect Diagram, ER Diagram, Cross-Functional Flowchart, Fault Tree Analysis Diagram, Audit Diagram, Sales Flowchart, Work Flow Diagram, Data Flow Diagram, Accounting Flowcharts, as well as many more other ones, using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, exporting them to MS Visio, if needed, after.

In order to create diagram in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can, first of all, open a new document in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software, select one of the existing libraries from the needed solution, which can be found and so downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE. Then add any needed elements to the diagram by dragging them from the stencil library from the chosen solution to your document page. Add the next object by clicking on its icon from the “RapidDraw arrows” that pop up immediately when you bring the mouse cursor over the chosen object, modifying them any time you need by using the “Action button menu”. Once your diagram is done, you can then save it in the needed format as well as export it for using in the other applications, such as MS Visio.

To compare ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and MS Visio, it’s obviously that the first one is more convenient in use and, providing the pre-made examples and templates makes ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application a better tool as having the previously created samples means having them as the users’ drafts for drawing their own great looking as well as professional charts, flowcharts, maps, diagrams and other schematics of different complexity. Having the stencil libraries full of design elements, which can be found and downloaded from Solution Park on this site as well as from ConceptDraw STORE, means having enough tools for making the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users’ drawing smart enough to look as if the professional designer made those plans, schemes, charts and flowcharts. You can always import the files created in MS Visio to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to continue working with them and to improve their content. So, it will help the MS Visio users to slowly get used to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as a better and more convenient software.
