I can use Google too but it will not help in my case. I have no Export option. There is wide range of saving possibilities (i.e. HTML, PDF) but SVG is nowhere to be found. I understand that exporting to any MS Office format requires it to be installed. Without that: specific options are greyed out BUT they are still visible (OO.org here). What should I put additionally into my PC to gain what I want?

- sorry, no offence intended.

I have asked support about how to Export to SVG, and about if there are any differences between my "normal" version and the giveawayoftheday version (except for lack of support and updates).

Quote from: eDraw support
the answers to your issues:

1)
  • I have not been able to figure out how to Export to SVG. Please direct me!

Edraw products don't support SVG format.


2)
  • Are there any differences between my "normal" copy of Max 4 and yesterday's giveawayoftheday copy (except for lack of support & updates)?
The advertisement in the giveawayoftheday is our commercial activity; the user could only activate the license code yesterday. You could register your product anytime.

The license code in the giveawayoftheday is only for personal, not for business.
The people use the license code is only for one computer, and they have only one time to activate the license code. But you could use both in your office and your home computer.
We don't support and provide updates to that license code.


3)
  • I think you should think about setting up a user's forum.
We have closed the user's forum because of the lots of spam. We consider building up it again in the future.

Thank you for your suggestion

Thank you for that information. It looks like they are simply lying on their website ;(
Well this product is still good after all (even if doesn't fit into my fenixplatform©).

One of the nice things about the update to version 4, is how much more quickly Edraw opens up now... Version 3 took about 20 seconds whereas version 4 is ready within about 4  :Thmbsup:

fenixproductions is right, from Edraw's website:

Exporting to SVG

You can export your document to the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format.

On File menu, point to Export, and click Native SVG.

The Save As dialog box will come up, type the file name and click Save.

Also you can:

Click Save As on the File menu.

On the Save As dialog box, select the Save Type as Scalable Vector Graphics Format.

Type the file name and click save.

None of the above options are available in EDraw Max 4...

- and the answer is:

Quote from: Edraw Support
Edraw Max V3.3 could export to SVG,
we consider add this function in the next version.

- so it sadly won't be available for Tuesday's giveaway version.

Edited:
(and they weren't "lying", the homepage's text was simply not updated for version 4.)

Thanks for the update - seems kind of odd to me that they would remove support... ?!

Most of version 4 has been rewritten, so I think it must be a question of not yet having written the feature into - not having  removed.

I've been a long time fan of Edge Diagrammer since it's early days.  It's no where near as bloated and complicated (or powerful if you want to think of it that way) as the big guys, but it is for me much easier and funner to use, and so perfect for when i just want to do some quick sketching of an idea.
Mouser, I just have to give a big thanks for recommending Edge.  Whew, what a breath of fresh air among the flowchart programs out there!  Over the years, 99% of the time I have found that all of the other softwares I tried were way too complicated.  Like Visio, they are a pain to use.  This Edge Diagrammer is so refrshingly simple.  Oh man, what a relief.  Even little things, like the way objects line up automatically are way easier in Edge than in Viso.  In Viso, things NEVER line up the way you want it to when you use the automatic alignment while dragging.  Things are always wanting to line up where you don't want it to.  Stupid stuff like that makes a program painful to use.  I'm sure there's a way to get it to work the way I want, but it should be default.

Speaking of default, changing the default connector styles in Visio is also way to complicated.  Whatever.  Edge is the way to go.  Unless you need super powerful features, I wouldn't even look elsewhere.  If all you are concerned with is drawing shapes, connecting them with arrows/lines, some text...look no further.
