"OpenOffice Draw is a really practical app "

What do you like best?

I love how quick and easy I can create three-dimensional figures with this program. in my opinion it is easier to create figures in this program than in Photo shop to be honest.

its simplicity make this program shine, once you check a couple of tutorial you are good to go and let you creativity goes wild.

What do you dislike?

I think the layout of this program is the only problem I have so far. It really looks like a Windows 98 program, although I can not be too critical since this program is free. but I feel that I had to point out this problem because at some point clients prefer that the designer works with the most complex program to create their projects, although most of the time it will be the same outcome if I work with Photoshop or OpenOffice draw. That's why I think that the design of this program takes a lot of credibility since it looks like Paint from 1998

The other thing that I do not like about this program is due to its simplicity. I feel that I can not find another practical use beside to create figures, draw something or create a logo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps me save time at the moment I need to create a figure like fruit , cell phone, furniture or even a background. Since I have been using this program for more than 2 months, quality and efficiency have increased.

Another thing is to create logos now it's easier with OpenOffice draw , it takes me 10 to 15 minutes, of course if I have a clear idea of what I have to do, but in Photoshop it takes me around 20 minutes or more since most of the time I forget where some of feature are locate.

"Una buena alternativa a Corel Draw y gratuita "

What do you like best?

Una de los aspectos más atractivos es que está bajo una licencia LGPL, es decir, bajo una licencia de Software libre. Aún no siendo una aplicación tan conocida como Corel Draw la verdad que tiene una comunidad muy activa para ayudar a la hora de dar soporte técnico

What do you dislike?

Que si no eres una persona que domine el inglés, si requieres soporte de desarrollador, generalmente es en ese idioma con lo que podría ser un problema para una persona que no tenga conocimientos de inglés técnico

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mi recomendación es sobre todo para personas que comienzan en el mundo del diseño que que no se pueden permitir pagar las licencias de otras aplicaciones más profesionales y extendidas como el Corel Draw. Para comenzar en el mundo del diseño es una herramientas más que recomendable

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizo mucho el OpenOffice Draw para la creación de pósteres, trípticos y demás cartelería publicitaria. Es una opción bastante potente y que ofrece herramientas muy útiles para trabajar con gráficos y diagramas

What Diagramming solution do you use?

"OpenOffice Draw software review"

What do you like best?

OpenOffice Draw software implements opensource philosophy, all documents import / export are stable and clear, meet open document standards, cross-platform, compatibility.

Everything an ordinary and advanced user a needs for making visualizations inside or outside documents staying in OpenOffice suite environment. I have not used this feature a lot but OpenOffice Draw has objects manipulation functionality to rotate in two or three dimensions; the 3D controller allows you to create spheres, rings, cubes, etc. in a quick pinch. Built-in and pluggable (extensions) image galleries. Works with common image formats (import/export), able to create and edit flash files. GUI can be customized by OpenOffice and icon themes. It is free, open-source software package, cross-platform and very compatible.

Different wizards with templates for document formats. Built-in Pdf export, the same as other OpenOffice packages. A long list of functions: document templates, frames, mail merge, a style manager, section-based headers and footers, and much more.

What do you dislike?

I do not find feature to dislike in OpenOffice, except high memory consumption with certain configuration. I needed to search the internet for making it faster with some performance and optimization fine-tuning. Many sites and tutorials advice to migrate to LibreOffice and/or choose other alternatives for office software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A best free alternative for Microsoft Office similar products, following Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) standards. Free,useful and intuitive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using primitives i can draw / create beautiful imagery for different purposes ( diagrams, chart, embed photos, etc.).

"Open Office Draw"

What do you like best?

I really like that there is a free graphics software that is open source. The very fact that it is free lends itself to companies that are having a hard time getting off the ground. The good thing about when it crashes is that it always allows you to recover whatever documents you were working on.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit difficult to edit PDF documents unless I use a third-party plug-in. Also, the ticks on the ruler don't always stay where I want them to. Also, sometimes it crashes without warning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you have the space for the whole suite because Apache bundles everything together unless you specifically opt out of all components of OpenOffice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am always looking for ways to save money without sacrificing my quality control. Mostly this is used for highlighting parts of a page, but occasionally math.

"The best for exhibitions"

What do you like best?

This program is very easy to install and use. It can be used in any operating system (Windows, Linux or Mac). We can use it the whole family, since it is very useful to make diagrams, brochures, vector drawings. This application allows the integration of text, photos, etc. To generate courses is extremely comfortable, since we can have the study material and do the class. Excellent program to make publicity announcements and flow diagrams, mental maps, conceptual maps, among others, since we can synchronize images with text specified by the user. Handles all types of images and their files can be used on any computer. It is an application of easy use and you learn very fast, since you do not need sophisticated knowledge to use it. It can be associated with other tools to obtain a better benefit.

What do you dislike?

The structure of the slides is lost when used in proprietary software. The format of other similar software is not maintained, a lot of information is lost and, paractically, the work must be done again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very didactic and easy to use, the versatility of the menu allows you to easily navigate and find the options you require comfortably. You can add the experiences of activities and avoid workshops. It allows me to do the courses in a summarized way and so I can explain it with images to the students in less time than stipulated.

"Create your designs perfectly"

What do you like best?

You always can create whatever you want without using programs like paint in your computer, it is funny and the images you draw look naturals. The desings are created by selecting the set of tool this program has in a board, gradually we can select those what we want to create.

What do you dislike?

I like it, is very easy to me, it has multiples characteristics that help me to draw those logos I need in my store, but rarely in cannot be drawn well due to the simple set of tools implemened.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend it to everyone, it has easy tools and the best important, you can import information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created a new logo with its respective slogan, my store really needed it so it came in good time to help in my desire about creating my brand. Its benefits has mainly been to bring me draw my own design.

"The best bussiness creation"

What do you like best?

I like the easy way t draw diagrams for any purposes, it comes from a simple picture to a complicated diagram. The draws are powerful and the tools too.

What do you dislike?

I don´t like that some tools are very complex to use, sometime I do not understand its functions, I think it could be a little more easy to the users.

"MS Office alternative - for free!"

What do you like best?

The first thing that I like about OpenOffice is the price, you cannot beat free!

Specifically, the Draw portion of Office is a good alternative to Paintshop and other programs like that

What do you dislike?

I really don't find anything to dislike about OpenOffice....perhaps that there isn't a ribbon interface like MS Office.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use OpenOffice for my own personal use. I like the fact that it can open files made in MS Office.

"La mejor opción en cuanto al software de su gama"

What do you like best?

Como software de diseño vectorial, permite trabajar con la mayor parte de las funcionalidades de sus hermanos de pago -Corel Draw es quizás su referente más inmediato- pero ofrece la ventaja de que se trata de un software gratuito y de código abierto. Al igual que otros programas similares, ofrece una interfaz enormemente intuitiva, con lo que trabajar con él es -literalmente- un juego de niños, pudiendo alcanzar resultados semiprofesionales.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de ofrecer una herramienta lo sufiencientemente digna como parábola obtener resultados bastante aceptables, aún sigue estando lejos de otros programas como Corel Draw o Adobe Illustrator dentro del ámbito profesional. Ofrece determinados problemas a la hora de exportar e importar archivos, lo que le resta algo de flexibilidad.

"quick and simple"

What do you like best?

it is easy to use and you can import several file types. the snap alignment is really great. i hate when things are out of line and this feature is really helpful to keep things straight and even. being able to save to google drive is an absolute plus, as more and more companies are utilizing the google drive services.

What do you dislike?

i didn't find anything to dislike, it was pretty easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

draw is a great program and i would recommend anyone trying to save their business some money to look into all of the openoffice programs. they are great tools that you can use for free and not have to pay to use microsoft office.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

using flow charts for business planning and implementation. openoffice draw really let's us plan proficiently. we are also able to go back and track our progress on our flow charts to make sure we are on task and seeing if we need to add more tasks to complete.

"OpenOffice Draw is quick and basic"

What do you like best?

OpenOffice draw is a quick and basic way to put together drawing elements. You can draft up something simple very quickly. It's also free.

What do you dislike?

It's very limited. Doesn't really have a lot of features and options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go ahead and get it because it's free. But if you need any particular features, you'll probably need something else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OpenOffice draw solves the need to put together quick diagrams or simple illustrations very quickly. So it's been a benefit, and we use it very often. Mostly to replace hand-drawings. When you need an illustration that's mostly boxes and elements, it's quick and easy.

"OpenOffice Draw wins them all"

What do you like best?

I love the shading options the most, that's something that is often lost in other programs.

What do you dislike?

When I first started, there was a bit of a learning curve so I wish the tutorial was a bit better so I knew all the buttons immediately instead of trial and error.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's way easier to use OO Draw than trying to mess around with sketching on paper and then faxing it in when it's a simple design.

"Cost"

What do you like best?

OpenOffice is free to download and free to use. It's also really easy for beginners to learn, but it can be used advanced too.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the format of the files; ODF! Most softwares use the DOC format. It also can have a lot of bugs and security risks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a beginner it is a really useful app which helps you accomplish a task in the meantime.

My favorite thing is that it is free. I use the preset shapes the most. It is easy for anyone to use, even my children. You can make a flyer very quickly.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything I dislike about the program. If I had to pick one thing, it would be that takes a little longer than my other programs to open, and the interface to find the program is not intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great alternative to purchasing other software. Can easily replace Microsoft Publisher, familiar feel to older versions of CorelDraw.

What do you like best?

OO Draw, a component of the Open Office Suite, is an ever-ready program for basic design work. As an open-source software product, it is always free to the end-user.

What do you dislike?

I wished it had a standard format like most of the other drafting tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
