If you’re looking for an alternative to Visio, check out Google Docs Drawing. Visio costs about £229 which if you’re only doing occasional diagrams seems a bit steep, while Google Docs is free.

Google Docs Drawing isn’t as powerful as Visio, so it may not suit all users,300-320 exam but for what I need – drawing diagrams showing the overviews of system designs, it does the job. I can draw shapes, link them and the links will move as shapes are moved. It also has the benefit of being a hosted document that I can share with the client. They, or I can modify it without having to manage versions.300-070 vce

    Have you tried Creately ? It also has real-time collaboration and some advanced drawing tools. They do offer a free version but your drawings are public which kind of sucks. But if you’re doing an assignment and want a one off diagram it is worth it.

    Another great Visio alternative is Lucidchart. They have some really advanced tools and you can tie it into your Google Drive. They have a free version as well as some very affordable month to month plans.

    Lucidchart’s Visio Alternative is still free for most use cases as has gotten even better in the last year.
