"SmartDraw VP goes a long way towards its stated aim of making the creation of graphics as easy as creating a written document in a word processor. It gives little excuse for dull, word-heavy reports or presentations. Perhaps not a tool for those with a lot of design experience, but most of us don't have this." SmartDraw VP review on IT Reviews
