Firstly, let me apologise for using the hideous word 'diagramming'. I'm not even sure it's a real word but we all know what I mean.

 

I need to produce some block diagrams etc for some technical documentation and am looking for a decent software package. I no longer have Visio installed and, whilst I could take out a subscription, I wondered if there was anything out there similar that was free. Or even something that was reasonably priced, I don't mind sending 50 monetary units if its half decent.

 

Must run smootlhl under Windows 10.

#1 Hardware Problem? https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

#5 "If you think you need floating point to solve the problem then you don't understand the problem. If you really do need floating point then you have a problem you do not understand."

Visio 2019 is at a low price with approximately three more years of zero price updates; subscription would enable extended updates.

Under teh subscription terms of $5, or $15 per month yes.  $530/$280 for purchase might not be so for some.

 

And the subscription requires you to consent to Microsnot having pretty much free reign over your contacts and other information in teh documents you create....from how I read parts of the EULA.

 

I guess they need this info in case you make a TikTok video from visio

Why not open office?  They have 'visio' drawing tools? ...FREE

 

 

How about Lucidcharts?   https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/templates    ...though it might liv in the cloud.

Not a drawing program per se though I think it can be used as such: I have found draw.io quite a handy tool for creating logic/flow/sequence and state diagrams.

Thanks for the recommendation. It looks interesting.
