I downloaded the trial version, and now cannot get it off my computer. I re installed thinking maybe that would help, but no g. I am going to have to wipe my hard drive to get rid of it, a royal pain in the you know what.
I have been a heavy user of SmartDraw through version 6 & 7. I started using it for efficiency: it was fast to load and I could very quickly create graphic representations of ideas or documentation for software design, cabling layouts, etc. V2007 appears to load more slowly and the new large fixed window header significantly reduces my drawing area when I have SD sized to share the screen with other apps (a common configuration for me). Maybe I am unique in my use of this software but I have returned my copy of 2007 and hope that SD comes back to its roots!
5.Version 7 libraries. These do of course transfer to 2007. Copy them using the file system to the Application Data/SmartDraw/My Symbols folder in your Documents and Settings. All custom libraries are now placed here so that they can easily and automatically transfer to new versions so this should be the last time upgraders will have to deal with this issue. The only wrinkle is a limitation (to be removed in our next patch) that requires you to create a new empty library before the library tree refreshes and recognizes that they are there.
I am using the new SD2007 trial version and was amazed how it really get an edge over MS Visio. At first, i really enjoyed using it and told my colleagues to try it out. But when i was tasked to produce a simple flowchart diagram using all the available templates, I was so disappointed with how sluggish my laptop become. The drawing itself is invisible when it reach a very high memory consumption but you can tell that your drawing is there. Is there a solution for this? I am using a laptop with 1G RAM and 80G HDD. Using windows xp pro sp2. Please help as i like this software better than MS Visio.
Well I have been playing with the trial version of smart draw 2008 for the the past day. I cant say that I can compare to previous versions but I can say I have found it so much easier to use than the competition. I also like the fact it is a reasonable price. As I am familiar with the toolbar in word 2007 I have found it to be very easy to use. I have just purchased a copy. I had no problems uninstalling the trial version off my vista machine.Cheers
I downloaded the 2008 version, then tried to uninstall !!! I also had problems removing it . Only just found this site and have now been able to remove this software which i must say looked good, but has its issues 2.
Had SD 2007. Really tried to get into it but in the end it was so slow and jerky that I had to uninstall it. (BTW, I have a brand new computer top of the range computer with 4Gb RAM, top graphics card and yet it was still painfully slow.) In the end I got fed up and uninstalled it, which in itself was a problem. What a relief this bloatware is gone! (And my computer seems to work faster now.)
