Now Vista compatible
Schematic is a drawing package that's much like SmartDraw and Visio, except that it also allows you to easily modify any of the existing graphics from the extensive library (we call them Widgets), and create your own unique versions. Of course you can create your own Widgets from scratch too (that's how we created the ones in the library).
An unlimited Widget library
Our aim is to create a working Widgets library where users post their modified or newly created Widgets ready for use by others. Please go to the Forum for details.
Simple and easy to use
Schematic also has the added feature of retaining connections you make between objects. However many times you change the layout, the connections will stay in place. It's a great timesaver!
