How to Dramatically Reduce Drawing Time -
New connection modes

"Chain" Mode

How should diagramming software work? Is it possible to develop a diagram as quickly as the ideas come to you?

The innovative ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology included in ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful drawing tool that changes the way diagrams are produced. While making the drawing process easier and faster.

ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful tool that helps you create a process map diagram quickly and easily. Fine-tuning the objects in ConceptDraw PRO allows you to create a really professional finished article. ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology gives drawing connectors a smart behavior that provides quick and precise placement, allows for easy changes and automatic rearrangement.

The "chain" mode connects every new shape to the previous one. If you want to create a new branch in your diagram, you just deselect the current chain and select the new shape, which will be the root for this branch, turn the "chain" mode on again and then continue adding shapes. The "chain" auto connection mode is convenient for drawing flowcharts and business process diagrams.
