Diagram Designer is a simple vector graphics editor for creating flowcharts, UML class diagrams, illustrations and slide shows.

It is a tiny freeware application created by Michael Vinther that will work on all versions of Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7/8. This is a short list with most powerful features: customizable template object palette, spellchecker, import-export images (support for JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PCX, ICO, MNG, WMF, EMF), slide shower viewer, simple graph plotter (plot mathematical expressions, advanced pocket calculator (including equation solver), MeeSoft Image Analyzer integration (for bitmap image editing and extended file format support), compressed file format for minimizing drawing file size etc. You can change Diagram Designer language by downloading additionally dictionaries and other template palettes from the main page.

Diagram Designer Review

Note: There's no need to mention the setup process as it took me exactly 5-7 seconds to install Diagram Designer on my computer. Also, I was unable to unzip other template palettes directly in Diagram Designer setup folder so if you encounter this error - create a different folder on your PC and load the template palettes from there - it will work.

If you need a free, fast tool to create flowcharts you have to try this application. As soon as I started Diagram Designer I realized that you can really create flowcharts as fast as possible if you're in a hurry. All you have to do is to drag all kind of elements in your workspace, add text, delete, add, insert pictures, change background, border, set layer color, text alignment and so on until you get the desired result. At the end, you can save your work in several different, popular images format such as JPEG, PNG, GIF or you can run/save your work as a slideshow. My favorite feature is the ability to import more template palettes. All you have to do is to download a zip archive with all of them from this address or the main page here, unzip them somewhere in a folder and then load them in Diagram Designer.

Suddenly, you will have more template palettes for more electronic symbols, websites, electronic display devices, genograms, polygons, Cisco network topology icons and many others. If you need help, keep in mind that this program comes with an excellent help file that covers almost anything you need to know regarding this program. Just press "F1" inside the program or choose the Help section from its menu. Ultimately, this software is a superb masterpiece and a real time saver so if you think the same, please donate any amount to Mr. Michael Vinther the author of this software.
