Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Flowcharts are the best for visually representation the business processes and the flow of a custom-order process through various departments within an organization. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts solution offers the full set of predesigned basic flowchart symbols which are gathered at two libraries: Flowchart and Flowcharts Rapid Draw. Among them are: process, terminator, decision, data, document, display, manual loop, and many other specific symbols. The meaning for each symbol offered by ConceptDraw gives the presentation about their proposed use in professional Flowcharts for business and technical processes, software algorithms, well-developed structures of web sites, Workflow diagrams, Process flow diagram and correlation in developing on-line instructional projects or business process system. Use of ready flow chart symbols in diagrams is incredibly useful - you need simply drag desired from the libraries to your document and arrange them in required order. There are a few serious alternatives to Visio for Mac, one of them is ConceptDraw PRO. It is one of the main contender with the most similar features and capabilities. Read more

The vector stencils library "Education list blocks" contains 18 list block shapes: numbered list, bulleted list, bullets.
Use these list blocks to design your educational infograms.
"In typography, a bullet is a typographical symbol or glyph used to introduce items in a list. ...
The bullet symbol may take any of a variety of shapes, such as circular, square, diamond, arrow, etc. ...
Bullets are most often used in technical writing, reference works, notes and presentations. ...
Bulleted items – known as "bullet points" – may be short phrases, single sentences, or of paragraph length. Bulleted items are not usually terminated with a full stop if they are not complete sentences, although it is not rare to terminate every item except the last one with a semicolon, and terminate the last item with a full stop. It is correct to terminate a bullet point with a full stop if the text within that item consists of one 'full' sentence or more." [Bullet (typography). Wikipedia]
The shapes example "Design elements - Education list blocks" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Education Infographics solition from the area "Business Infographics" in ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
