Likelihood to Recommend

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Likelihood to recommend? Overall, absolutely. I'm very satisfied with ConceptDraw and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I found it very easy to get up and running producing flow chart diagrams. I find it intuitive, flexible and it does what it says. Moreover it's very much an "alive" product with regular updates

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

CorelDRAW is very well suited for customizing cross plots and diagrams from external software, and integrating them with multiple other sources, such as pictures, in order to distill the main concepts and summarize ideas for scientific papers. It also works great for digitizing figures from old papers and adapting them to the context of your work.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

  • Ease of use is a major factor in our choice for the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. With intuitive interface terminologies, users are able to jump right into the applications with ease and confidence.
  • The ability to customize the Suite to fit your particular needs is a major strength of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. CorelDRAW customization abilities are endless and can turn the default Graphics Suite into a fully customized powerhouse application catered to a designer's specific wants and needs.

Cons

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

  • Keyboard shortcuts are non-intuitive
  • Re-scaling can be tricky if you don't set the page up correctly at the beginning of your project

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

  • Some of the font files have spacing issues, for example, Monotype Corsiva is set a little to the right when choosing a centered text
  • We can't save a version of the CorelDRAW file as a jpeg.
  • The auto vertical text centering options don't always transfer well or show if saved as a pdf, so we hand-center text vertically.

It needs a bunch of work. For the price it could be better. And even though I am using it still I find it very difficult to use but I make it work

Just like any design program or suite, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't do graphic design professionally. If you're not adept at learning a program or experience, it isn't a program you can just pick up and start using easily. Outside of the learning curve, it's a nice program with a decent user interface.

I've never had any major problems with the ConceptDraw team. Actually, they update their software frequently. It's always small updates, but they're necessary to make sure it will work properly. I had a question one time and decided to send to them. The problem was solved in less than three hours, which I believe is a really good point to consider.

It's not easy to get people. The tutorials don't really "tell you" exactly how to do stuff. You have to depend on Youtube and even then, it's not the best. Corel really needs to put out really good quick tutorials on how to do "key" special effects, like how to remove a background QUICK, Art Conversions, Best Practices, etc.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is the best value for the money and has a very extensive set of ready to use libraries and solutions.

Corel is as good as Adobe Illustrator but cheaper. It is easier to use than Inkscape, however, Inkscape is free. I chose Corel because I learned it 10+ years ago and transitions were easy enough, affordable enough that I didn't have to relearn or break the bank to continue with Corel.

Return on Investment

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

  • Quick to produce charts.
  • Hassle free.
  • And that word again - it's "intuitive."

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

  • Ease of use reflects on less time to train new users, a positive impact in investment and productivity.
  • The practicality to make new designs results in less time needed to do them, again a positive impact.
  • The integration with other graphic programs could be better if needed to finish a rendering using the design made in Corel Draw it's needed to export in formats that don't carry all information and the process is not that simple.
