What are people saying about MyDraw

Ronald Jurman Looks quite interesting, although I wish the license at least included a laptop plus desktop inclusion (versus single computer).

Downloaded the trial. Description above includes UML diagrams, which would be my focus, but I can't find anything on the website or in the program that suggests that that is the case.

Am I missing something? Or is the description inaccurate?

Ronald Jurman @ Chris,

Saw that.

Going through that process twice a day sounds like a bit much,
(and if the active computer has a malfunction, SOL.)

No thoughts on UML diagrams?

MyDraw The licenses for MyDraw are per user/computer and are revocable - you can revoke the license you have activated in order to activate it for a different computer which uses the same OS.

Regarding UML diagrams - we currently don't provide support for UML diagrams. Our plans are to develop UML diagram shapes and specific UML diagram functionality with the upcoming versions of MyDraw.

Ronald Jurman Yep, that's the license, precisely as I understood and understand it. No question, not confused. Never stated any different, just "wished" it was different than "(single computer)".

And I clarified above why, in that the license (as stated/agreed) is a real turn off for individual buyers that use a laptop during the day (or when they travel) versus a desktop in the evening (or variations), as well as users who fear they will lose their one and only license if their computer malfunctions.

You're losing customers with that license!

As to the UML diagrams "we currently don't provide support for UML diagrams" doesn't match up well with the product description that says "you’ll be able to build flowcharts, ... , floor plans, UML diagrams, ...". If the product doesn't support them (and no, future doesn't count), don't put that capability prominently in the product description!

Don't advertise capabilities that the product doesn't have!

It looks like a decent product at a good price, but the deal has some poison pills that will probably turn many potential buyers away.

MyDraw Thank you for your feedback, it is highly appreciated.

Nick H "With MyDraw, you’ll be able to build flowcharts, organizational charts, mind maps, network diagrams, floor plans, UML diagrams and general business diagrams"

How are they allowed to advertise like this when they have zero UML diagrams? There's absolutely no templates for class, sequence, use case, state or component diagrams.

42gr Hi there
I tried getting help from the website after buying the software but no one is responding. I'm trying to use the jump lines feature in drawing an electrical circuit. I've enabled it and tried all permutations of self and other. I can't get it to work. The help file in the product and on your website has zero references to the feature. Could you verify the feature works please. I downloaded the latest version, registered it (professional version) and also rebooted it. Not working so far.
Thanks. George

MyDraw You can print and export to PDF your MyDraw drawings.MyDraw features Visio drawings and stencils import and export. This makes MyDraw a perfect tool to view and edit Visio drawings and stencils.

The user interface of MyDraw is similar to the user interface of Microsoft Office products, so you can quickly start working with it.

Richard Blake I see from your website that purchase includes one major version upgrade. Must that apply to the next major version, or can it be deferred to a following major version? What is the current discount for paid major version upgrades, and do you have an annual maintenance fee that covers that?
The machow2.com review (1/31/19) reported trouble with vsdx exports. (That implies that other imports/exports they tried were fine, which is very good.) Any comment on that? Do you find that swapping files between MyDraw and other drawing software is important to many of your users?
Thanks.

Sebastian User Purchased a license. Activation fails with an HTTP 400 error. It goes through validating my credentials, though. So it's definitely a server-side error. Any help would be appreciated.

I understand that software has to be activated. I do not understand why customers are left alone when activation servers fail.

Robert Crombie There is one feature in flowcharts that I have never found (or has not been adequate enough) -
The ability to attach a note to a shape.
The note could be very large (nearly as big as the screen).
It remains hidden until you mouse over an icon (or whatever).
There would be an easy way to dismiss it (eg move the mouse top right).
If you click in the exposed note, you can edit it.
Does today's software have this ability ?
Does anyone know of software that can do that ?

I have searched for this ability for years,
Rob

MyDraw Hi Robert,

This is possible with MyDraw.

Below the "Shape Library" you can use the "Callout Shape library" to type a note and also move the icon. After you "drop it" if the selected "Callout Shape" has a control point you can connect that control point to the desired port or contour of the other shape.

Nevron Software - Mar 29 at 3:56am Copy Link

Richard Blake @Herzberg, please understand that 'lifetime license' is not a term with a universally agreed definition. MyDraw has replied that your license will last a lifetime (presumably yours, not your computer's, since the license is transferable) - it does not expire after a year or other term. Actually, it can last multiple lifetimes, as you are entitled to transfer your license to another party. That is unusual and valuable, especially to businesses that need to reassign the software as workers come and go. That you can install the software on both your machines and transfer the license is more generous than many licenses that limit installation to one computer at a time, or even limit the number of times you can run the installer, after which [in some licenses] you may contact the company and have the count extended or reset.

The license is posted at https://www.mydraw.com/about/eula

The license does not state that you are entitled to a lifetime of free upgrades (major version changes), or even free updates (minor version number changes). [Most licenses provide free updates, but differ in how long: typically either until the next major version, or for a year after purchase.] There is no guarantee that there will be future updates, even to correct errors. If upgrades are made available, you are entitled to them, if the software is "identified by Nevron as eligible for the upgrade". That's language I've never seen before; my only guess is that the software is eligible only if at the prior major version number, i.e. that you have acquired prior upgrades as they became available.

On https://www.mydraw.com/buy/ it says
•MyDraw Standard licenses are perpetual
•The Standard license provides no charge upgrade to the next major version
and later, in the Sales FAQ:
How long is my license valid for?
MyDraw Standard licenses are perpetual and will provide no charge upgrade to the next paid version.
This means that it is a one-time purchase and the version you have licensed will not expire.
You can upgrade to the latest version of the application on a preferential price.
For more information regarding upgrades please contact MyDraw Sales sales@mydraw.com

Version history is at https://www.mydraw.com/su...on-history. Appears complete up to 3.0. They moved from 3.0 to 3.9.0 between Sep 2018 and now, but no details on those releases. Announcements at https://www.mydraw.com/ab...ease-v-1-0 etc. Going from 1.0 to 3.9 in 1 year, 9 months is pretty aggressive. I expect v4 could be announced in the next three to six months. That should make the UML diagrammers happy.

Oddly (to me), once you have upgraded you are no longer entitled to use the earlier version of MyDraw - no moving the license back to an older copy on another machine. (Why bother imposing that restriction?) So if you have a collection of drawings that you wish to use after upgrade you better hope that the new version can properly open files saved under the earlier version. Also, if the new version saves those older files (not to mention new files) in a form that is incompatible with the earlier version, then you will not be able to exchange those files with any user still using the old version. Probably not a problem for the individual user, but a concern for a company with many users possibly at multiple locations, or anyone who exchanges their output with other companies.

The author(s) may decide to freeze the product and develop a replacement, presumably with additional features, a ground-up rewrite in a different language, etc, and give the new product a new name. You may be offered an opportunity to "upgrade" to the new product at a discount, but the license is silent on that point. This has happened to me, terminating my 'lifetime free upgrades'.

Support: "MyDraw provides free support for registered and trial users." Details at https://www.mydraw.com/support/

Some companies leave prior builds of their software available for future download by licensees, so they can collect later updates to which they are entitled but didn't download when posted, or if they lost the backup of their download. Other companies make available only the current build. Nevron appears to be in the latter camp.

My additional query
==============
I experimented with Visio 2010, and could not get Callout to adequately do what I wanted. Over the years a few people have asked how to do what I want, in Visio, and none of them got what they needed.
Is MyDraw different from Visio (regarding callouts) ?

Chuck @myDraw - I share @Richard Blake's concern about the unclear license and aggressive development timeline. While I would love to support even though I own Visio, I find the choice difficult given you will, in all likelihood, release the next major version in the coming few months (if not weeks) at an additional cost to those who just recently invested in your product.

Please clarify your release timeline and/or upgrade policy/timeline with respect to customer purchase and release of the next major version.

MyDraw @Chuck

I am sorry to inform you that the release date has not been confirmed for the moment. However, regarding the upgrade policy- if you have a version below v.3 you will have to pay 50% for the newest-v. 4.0. Additionally, if you have a version above 3.x the upgraded- v.4.0 will be free.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to have MyDraw running on both desktop and laptop with a single license ( at the same time). To use, for example, the desktop you need to deactivate the software on the laptop and vice versa.

MyDraw In MyDraw you can Import from Excel ( keeping the specified format of data) but you cannot Export to Excel. In addition, you can use it on 2 machines ( not at the same time). If the license for the software is active on the laptop, it has to be deactivated on the desktop. However, it is still 1 license.

Jon Spain Thanks, Excel export would just be a nice feature and should, in theory, be possible if you can go the other way. However, the license is just too restricted to be practical. So many other software vendors allow two owned devices but not at the same time that I'm really surprised that you can't do that.

Todd User UPDATED (one problem resolved, another problem surfaced):
Although cumbersome, I was eventually able to get the window resized out of full-screen mode. Once the window was resized, it appears to "stick" after the program is closed and re-started, and the GUI size drag handles and resize buttons are now working properly. So, the problem I originally described is now resolved.
Now I am trying to figure out how to unlock the trial version. I followed the directions and used the download link provided by BitsduJour, but there is no menu item (that I can find) to enter a serial number ("password") to unlock the trial mode (and remove the trial version watermark).
*****************************************************************************************
Users with UHD monitors beware: I purchased this software without testing it first. I run a Windows 10 Pro system with triple 4K monitors. This software misbehaves and apparently does not understand multiple monitors and/or UHD resolution. The software does work, but ONLY in full screen mode, and resizing the GUI does NOT work on my system. The resizing drag does not function, and the maximize and restore buttons (upper right hand corner) do not function correctly.

MyDraw 1) MyDraw has a lot of Automatic Layouts that help you arrange even large diagrams with ease. It has great support for drawing themes and creating 1D and 2D barcode. MyDraw also comes with powerful Rich Text formatting, comparable to Microsoft Word. MyDraw' Visio Import and Export are among the best in the industry.

2)You will be able to upgrade from version 3.9 to 4.0 freely.

3)Yes, but you will have to transfer the license from one machine to the other and vice versa.

4)The timeline chart is not available in MyDraw, but in a future upgrade, we might include it. Currently, you can import such charts from Visio.

Jaap Aap Hi, the activation/deactivation approach somewhat worries me. If deactivation has not taken place before reinstalling (for example in case of a harddrive crash), it seems that the reinstalled software could no longer be activated? Could you please elaborate on the possibilities in such a case? Thanks!
