The User-friendly Interface

The User-friendly Interface

The interface is similar with MS Word so that users can operate the software without hassle. It is quite user-friendly because even beginners can handle it without learning a manual. At the same time, Edraw includes advanced elements for easy and effective diagramming.

Create Beautiful Diagrams with More Templates & Symbols.

With 280 types of diagram templates and more than 26000 vector symbols, creating an exclusive and stunning diagram with Edraw has never been so much easier before.

However, Microsoft Visio® only offers 80 types of templates, which the number of template types for Edraw is three times as much as that for Visio®.

Compatible with Visio® and Other File Formats

Seamlessly import Visio® files and .VSSX files. You can do further modifications. Bring your old Visio® files back to life again.

Meanwhile, Edraw files can be exported to other files for free, such as MS Visio, MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, SVG, Html, PDF, GIF, JPG, TIFF, etc.

However, with Visio®, only convert Visio files to quite a few file formats, even more, it's not free because you have to buy Microsoft 365 before converting files.

Affordable Price for More Features.

The price of Visio is almost as twice as that of Edraw.

Edraw's competitive price can help customers save a lot of money. Why not select a software with more features and lower price instead of Visio?
