ConceptDraw Pro presentations graphics tool updated to version 9.4

updated 10:43 pm EDT, Tue April 23, 2013

New startup wizard, connector technology, Solution Pak added

Graphic manipulation software developer CS Odessa today announced free upgrades to the company's ConceptDraw Pro business graphics and diagramming package. ConceptDraw Pro 9.4 features an enhanced startup wizard, new connectors technology and ConceptDraw Solution Park additions to help users produce documents more rapidly.

The new startup wizard allows users to determine optimal settings such as page orientation, grid marks, snapping, object dimensions and other settings from the outset, eliminating the need to go back and change settings once document construction is underway. The company claims that by defining settings for new projects up front, users dramatically improve efficiency.

The 9.4 release also features Smart Connectors with Arrows 10 technology to streamline object linking. Users can automatically redraw linked object connectors as they adjust object positions within business graphics. Smart Connectors automatically route around other objects to make dependences and connections crystal clear at a single glance and significantly reduce drawing time. The new technology is backwards-compatible with older ConceptDraw Pro files, automatically updating document formats to enable editing.

CS Odessa has also rolled out new ConceptDraw Solution Park enhancements, including new templates and libraries to help users quickly and efficiently produce professional results. The ConceptDraw Solution Park is a popular destination for the ConceptDraw Pro community, offering a range of professional drawing solutions users can access at no additional charge.

ConceptDraw Pro 9.4 is a free upgrade for all ConceptDraw Pro 9.x users. The software package is compatible with OS X 10.7 and above, and Microsoft Windows XP SP 3 and above. ConceptDraw Pro retails for $199, and competitive upgrade pricing is available upon request.
