Every area of business needs tools that can be used to make graphs, presentations, mind maps, and so on. There aren’t many things you can buy that can help you with this kind of work.
What Is EdrawMax?
EdrawMax is software that can be used to make both graphics and flowcharts. Which helps you make flowcharts, network diagrams, mind maps, workflow diagrams, and other business and engineering diagrams.
With EdrawMax’s large library of templates, it’s easy to make more than 200 different kinds of diagrams. Simply put, it is a reliable diagramming program that works on multiple platforms and lets you make more than a hundred diagrams and infographics.
Compared to other software I’ve used, EdrawMax’s user interface is very easy to understand. From the moment you open it, it will ask you what kind of diagram you want to make.
You can scroll through different types of diagrams, and each type has its own subcategories. In each subcategory, you’ll find tens or hundreds of ready-made templates.
You can choose from the templates that have already been made, or you can choose a blank chart. Either way, when you click on a template, you will be taken to the canvas.
There, you’ll find an interface that looks a lot like MS products. On the left, you’ll see the objects you can add to your diagram, and on the right, you’ll see details about how you can add text, images, hyperlinks, symbols, etc. There are many ways to get your design or show it to other people.

Data Import and Export: One of the best things about EdrawMax is that you can import diagrams from other programs like MS Visio and change them to fit your needs. It also lets you export your projects in different file types, such as PDF, DOC, SVG, PPT, etc.

|Thousands of pre-made templates to choose from||Saved documents take time to fully open|
|All-in-one graphic designing and diagramming software|
EdrawMax is software that can be used on Windows, Mac, and the Internet.
EDM needs at least 2 GB of RAM and 4 GB of disc space to run on Microsoft Windows 2000/2003/2008/Vista/7/8/10 (32bit/64bit), Mac OS X 10.11 or above, and Linux.
It can be used on Windows, Mac, and online.
Impact on System
EdrawMax is software that can be used on more than one platform. It also has web-based support for its users. System impact is not something you need to worry about if you have a good PC that can run Web browsers. But if you want to run EDM locally, you have to make sure your computer meets all the requirements.
I would suggest running it on Windows 7 or higher because it seems a little slow. This could be because I have a low-end computer, but hey! People now have Windows 10, not Windows 7, and strong hardware.
EdrawMax Vs MS Visio
Most people in business use something made by Microsoft. MS Visio is the first thing that comes to mind when people think of diagrams and flowcharts. Which is a lot more expensive if you buy a lifetime license than EdrawMax. EdrawMax, on the other hand, has a huge number of templates that you can change.
But when you look at the features of both programs and compare them, they are about the same.
