Escape the Mousetrap: SmartDraw Helps Users Create Flowcharts and Other Graphics without Ever Touching a Mouse

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2008 announced today that users can now create polished, professional-looking flowcharts in minutes--without ever touching a mouse. With SmartDraw 2008, business professionals can use keyboard shortcuts to create flowcharts quickly and effortlessly. Flowcharts practically draw themselves, based on the user's instructions.

"We performed user test after user test to look for the easiest, best way to make flowcharts," said Paul Stannard, CEO of "Based on our results we replaced the manual drawing approach, used by Visio and other graphics software, with automatic drawing via simple commands. In fact by using the keyboard shortcuts to these commands, users can make great-looking flowcharts in minutes--without taking their hands off the keyboard."

SmartDraw, the world's most popular business graphics software, is widely used to create virtually any kind of flowchart quickly and easily. Now, users can build flowcharts faster by clicking simple commands, rather than manually arranging and connecting shapes on the page with a mouse. Lines are drawn automatically, and formatting is automatic with shapes evenly spaced and perfectly aligned. Read more about mouse-less flowcharting with SmartDraw on the SmartDraw blog.

SmartDraw is the first software that automates the creation of business graphics, and is downloaded by more than 2 million people each year. Unlike other graphics programs that provide you with a blank screen and expect you to draw, like Visio, with SmartDraw you start with a template that is specifically designed to create the type of illustration you need. You enter the information and SmartDraw does the rest: building the graphic automatically using built-in rules and professional design themes to guarantee polished, presentation-quality results in just a few minutes. It draws for you! And, in the rare case that users need extra help, SmartDraw offers free customer support to all users.
