Dramatically Shortens Learning Curve for Business GraphicsCS Odessa announces the upcoming release of ConceptDraw 7.2, the new version of CS Odessa's popular vector drawing and diagramming software package has many new extended user capabilities. Version 7.2 makes ConceptDraw easier to learn for new users of this popular business graphics application.
ConceptDraw 7 makes preparation of professional business graphics easy for individuals regardless of drawing skill level. ConceptDraw 7 gives users the ability to create sophisticated and professional looking organization charts, flowcharts and compelling business graphics as well the ability to construct network and database diagrams.
New to ConceptDraw 7.2 is "Dynamic Help", a special Inspector Pane window lets users see timely and important information about the tools they are using when they are drawing. The Inspector Pane includes simple diagramming tips and advanced application features that are appropriate to the area of the program they are using, allowing users to produce professional drawings much faster and easier. Dynamic Help is available for Macintosh version.
Oleg Bocharnikov, Head of Product Management Department for CS Odessa, notes, "Dynamic Help makes the use of ConceptDraw much simpler and more intuitive for people who are knowledge workers in business. We see very often that an individual will have a requirement for sophisticated graphics, but do not have enough experience with a business graphics application to really be able to use it to communicate their thoughts. Now with the addition of Dynamic Help users can discover and utilize all the advanced features they might have missed before, helping them realize their vision."
Carl Robinson, a long-time user of ConceptDraw explains, "This version fired up just fine with the Dynamic help box coming up with the information. I like this feature simply because it's simple! I like the idea that any button you have on the windows and tool boxes can quickly be referred to in the Dynamic help box. Dynamic help is great for a new user to ConceptDraw and good for experienced users who may have been away from ConceptDraw for a few months and may have forgotten a feature that the Dynamic help feature quickly reminds them of".
With the release of ConceptDraw 7.2 there is now a larger focus on its web publishing capabilities. The new release of ConceptDraw has a significantly improved HTML export, allowing users to create web pages based on specifically designed templates and an improved SVG export that produces drawings that can be easily viewed and scaled in any web browser.
