The tool for visual mathematicians

I love it for the purpose it was intended for. I don't think I could find anything better. Most of the time I have nothing but good things to say about this product. Just don't let yourself get in a spot where you need to write your own code to generate your charts automatically because the API and help for it would require another degree just for this product.

PROS

It can connect to a wide range of data sources to present data in your charts. It has a wide range of abilities through the various add-ons and tools. The range of standard drawing objects is huge and you can create your own if you know what you are doing.

CONS

It sucks for trying to program against it. Every drawing object has its own properties, methods and behaviors. It is a real nightmare if you need to integrate it into an automation system. The only one I have found that might be worse is Outlook and that would depend on what you were doing.

Reason for choosing Visio

We didn't. Our company purchased both and use them both for different types of needs.

Reasons for switching to Visio

These versions had a lot of functionality but since our company bought the MS suite and Visio came as part of the package it just made sense to use what we had versus buying something else.

Visio: The Best Diagram Creation Software

PROS

I am a system engineer. As a system engineer, i need to draw network and system infrastructure diagram. So, i am using visio to create network and system diagram for my work . Visio is a great digram creation software. It has a lot of stencils. GUI is very easy to use for beginner and easy to find template and stencils from online.

CONS

I don't have many, but when I do, it can be challenging for me to make adjustments to a big design with many of shapes and lines; at that point, it gets tedious.
