Lovely Charts is a tool for creating a wide variety of diagrams. With it you can create flowcharts, sitemaps, wireframes and many other graphs. It has lots of features which make the creation process a lot easier and a large library of symbols dedicated to each diagram type. It has a user-friendly interface and it is relatively simple to use, once you get the hang of it.
The program doesn't have a tutorial, so you'll need to read the Help section, which explains every feature quite well, or just discover it by yourself. To add symbols on to the workspace, all you need is drag & drop a symbol from the library. To make a connection between two or more symbols, you need to click and hold on one icon, and then move towards the other.
The library is organized in many different categories. You can even add new symbols to the library using the icon finder feature or take icons from anywhere else and use them in your diagram. You can also create your own library of symbols.
Another great feature is that you can drag & drop whole documents into the program and it will create diagrams automatically if they are arranged appropriately. It only works for simple .txt files, and sometimes you'll need to manually add some connections; however, it is still a very useful feature because you'll save precious time. The program can also create an automatic layout of all the symbols: you just click on the desired layout, and everything will be arranged in that manner.
Lovely Charts is really a great solution for creating diagrams a lot faster than with other non-dedicated programs. With its user-friendly design and many features it can be used by anyone to create quality diagrams fast.
