It's rare to find two organizations—let alone two people—that use CuteDraw
in the exact same way. Which is why CuteDraw empowers you with the tools you
need to fully customize your solution.
Because not only does most everyone in your organization need to create graphics
to communicate clearly and effectively—they're used in presentations,
report, whitepapers, company handbooks, and more—but they usually need to do it with
their own tools, their own symbols, building their own messages. For example:
- Accounting departments need to create
to illustrate financial systems.
- Electrical Engineers need to draw
- Facilities Managers contemplating changes or additions to leased space
need to create space
- HR departments need to create
to show who works for whom and where, and forms to collect employee information.
- IT needs to create
and space plans
to make sure that, before they begin going to work, they know where they're
- Marketing and Sales departments need to create
graphics, charts, territory maps, and diagrams
to better convince prospects and better explain strategies.
- Mechanical Engineers need to draw
- Project Managers need to make
Gantt charts, and
timelines to track
every step of every process and project.
- Quality Managers implementing ISO, TQM or other quality programs need
flowcharts and other
- Software Engineers need to create
UML and other
- Web Designers need to draw
site maps and
Almost everyone occasionally needs to add a chart or
diagram to a document to help others "get the picture."
Customize CuteDraw for Your
Even though CuteDraw is the versatile drawing program in the world,
with more than 1000 symbols and templates for all kinds of diagrams, your
business may need to create specialized drawings using your own symbols and
graphics. CuteDraw makes it easy by allowing you to quickly customize your
solution to fit your unique business needs.
Create Your Own Symbols
If you can't find the symbol you need among the 1000 that CuteDraw offers,
simply draw your own, and use them over and over again. CuteDraw's intuitive
drawing tools make it easy to create any kind of graphic, image, or symbol you
may need. Once you've created it, simply drag and drop it into any open symbol
library, and you never need to draw it again. It's that easy. See
how to create a new shapes.
Edit Existing Symbols
You can also edit any of the 1,000 symbols that come with CuteDraw. Simply
select the symbol and choose Edit Symbol from the
Libraries menu. You can change its shape, size, color, text properties,
connection points, and how it will behave when it is stretched or scaled. See
how to edit a shape.
Import Symbols from Other Software
Maybe you have other software containing useful symbols, or files full of clip
art or images that you'd like to use in CuteDraw. No problem. You can even use
CuteDraw's Library Builder Wizard to convert thousands
of graphic files into organized CuteDraw libraries in just minutes! CuteDraw
lets you import symbols in virtually any popular graphics format including
Windows Metafiles, BMP, JPG, GIF, TIF and more. See
how to manage shape library.
Create Your Own Library
Any CuteDraw drawing can be saved as a library—a ready-made starting point
that you or anyone else in your organization can use to make standardized
drawings. You can define all the properties of your library, from the behavior
of text to the colors of objects. You are in complete control of your solution!
