This is a free viewer tool for drawings generated by Visio and eDrawMax programs.
You can use this free file Viewer to view and print files created by Edraw or Visio. That would not require eDraw to be installed on your computer. Edraw Viewer is distributed as freeware for personal, commercial and educational use. The drawing file formats it can handle easily include edx, edxz, vdx files. The printed files will not have any watermark if the drawings were created by a full version of the eDraw Max program. This viewer is ideal for situations when even though you need to view and print drawings, you do not need to modify the drawings in any way. You do not need to invest in the full blown drawing program in such a situation. In a collaborative project situation, where multiple parties are typically involved, there can be quite a few partners who do not need anything more than viewing capabilities.
The drawing program eDraw Max is an all-in-one drawing program that can handle many different types of drawing. Some of these include flowcharts, mind maps, network diagrams, organizational charts, scientific illustrations, Gantt charts and so on. You could use the same viewer for all of these types. This has a simple interface and is quite intuitive. Most users would be able to get productive very quickly. The controls are also well laid out. Users will be able to figure out what to do and how to do it. Features that make it useful include clearly labeled buttons, a outlook template window for adding shapes, samples gallery for managing examples. Editing tools are quite good too. These include resizing, rotating, grouping, order, align and distribute. This is a very good product. If you are looking for a similar solution, this is a good candidate for a trial in your exact set up.
