When you're writing documentation in some kind of plaintext (e.g. Markdown), Monodraw makes it possible to do sophisticated, easily-changed graphical diagrams that can be pasted directly into text. It's a superb program. I highly recommend it.

This is a great tool to insert drawings into code comments. Comes with export options for different comment types and other configurations to embed in code. Much better than inserting an image into projects and hoping other devs will take the time to look at them. Also makes it easier to update.

I've spent so much time manually creating ASCII art diagrams for in-line documentation in code and markdown docs. Doing it by hand is laborious and making changes is often even more time consuming. This app makes it so much easier. Jumping right in, the interface is pretty intuitive. A few features I thought were missing (arbitrary line attachment points, keyboard shortcuts) are actually there and, as it turns out, shown in the Intro Document examples. So that's worth checking out: Help menu > Open Intro Document...

It saved me dozens of hours to create the message of today file, /etc/motd. It has a build-in figlet program, and has dozens of fonts of figlet. Really cool.

I am a big fan of videogames like Factorio and Satisfactory. These are games that are about resource collection/management in the form of building large factories to automate resource production and refinement. I grabbed Monodraw to provide me with a tool to plan out and theorize more efficient automated systems in my factories. The features allowing me to group together production lines, and copy and past them for duplication has allowed me to plan out basic systems that I can copy then paste to quickly create more complex systems made of of multiple basic systems. I judge software largely on the basis of how seamless it feels to use. At no point in my planning have I felt like my planning is slowed down by needing to learn how to use Monodraw. The interface is very intuitive and doesn't "get in your way." If I were to have one complaint/request. At this time I cannot seem to zoomout any further than 75%. This is not a huge issue, but would be nice for being able to see the entirety of a designed system without needing to pan around.

One of the most usufell graphic tools for me. Source code must be always contains good documentation. Right in code. No JPEG or PNG. Good improvements.

I was looking for an inexpensive tool for Flow Charting amd stumbled across MonoDraw that I affectionally call MoonDraw! You can drag some basic shapes, add text and connect them using point to point lines. The best part is that Mono Draw handles everything in a cool text flavored graphic style so it is easy to edit and copy/paste to other apps. I was surprised that there was no PRINT option in the app, but for a 1.0 app it is great. I look forward to doing some great text editing. Would be cool to see if the developers could link TextSoap, PopClip to make it even easier to get in and out with MonoDraw text enhancements.

Great app. Enough layout flexibility to suit my needs for flowcharting and documentation. Export to SVG and text copy and past to comments in source code is terrific.

Great tool. Easy to use, far better than Visio! Love the software development side to it. Great product.
