Dear Lady/Gentleman,

Kindly I ask your attention.

Thanks about the GOTD Offer! :)

Just installed it!

Looks good, maybe some Themes changing will do it.

Good to have some programmers, How Do Only that and make some money by it. But, compatible with A LOT Different programs, WHEN I MEAN A LOT, PREFERABLY ALL.

WILL BE TO LATE TO TRY, BUT..

Why does it load so slow?
I have more hardware specifications to keep up.
?

Maybe the program should have some settings to let startup what's needed and to set What Will Not be needed.
Don't know.

GOTD & GOTD Offer, Have a NICE day yourselfs too! :)

PS: Have a happy work week & weekend! :)

I've only just installed and activated it and scanned over some of the included vector shapes and import/export capabilities and user interface but I am impressed at it's wide range of potential included subjects of shapes included... Particularly pleased to see a range of electronics symbols which I might be able to use to produce attractive schematic diagrams to illustrate projects with. The program requires internet access to authorise the license activation. I shall be installing this on my Windows 10 laptop where I do most of my dev work... It is nice to see a more complete install script that is aware if the host operating system supports quck launch shortcuts with the install option to create one apears on Vista system but not on Windows 10 system which of course does not support the old quick launch bar that was removed after Vista version of windows. That fact alone sets it appart from just about every giveaway I've experienced so far that offered quick launch shortcuts even if the host version of windows has no use for such shortcuts and if selected just blindly creates the shortcuts in the depretiated locations that never get referenced by that system. Note the license code retrieved is for ONE machine alone. To install and activate the giveaway on a second or third machine will require you to request a new licence code from the URL from the readme.txt and you will need to use a different email address for each new code you request, one license code per email address... GAOTD will resend the same license code of you re-request a code using the same email address each time.

Thumbs up user vote from me for this giveaway and it's license terms.

WOW! I have never seens antything like this. Great program.

Maybe I have not been looking, but this program does 1,000% more than I wanted.

I will check out all the ins and outs.

I would give this a rating of 99.

Highty suggest you try it.

No trouble activating. Looks like a nice and useful program. I was a little disappointed, though, that (as far as I could tell) there's no Entity-Relation Diagram setup. (Maybe I'll find it tucked away under some unfamiliar name.)

The registration was a bit challenging but I managed and will start to explore the possibilities. Fortunately I have a 3 screen arrangement here with one of them a 42" monster. This should give me room to be creative and still swap results around to other applications like PowerPoint and Word where I plan to use it the most. I expect I will need a few weeks to find my way around all the menu options but the joy of discovery left by the programmers is always rewarding.

Nice software! Went to the site to register and got the key emailed immediately. The readme has directions for entering the key. I was interested in doing network diagrams and noticed that while the template has router, switch, etc. shown, the available shapes do not include these devices. I do not see any additional resources available on the MyDraw site to supplement. Am I just out of luck, or am I missing something? Thank you.

If anyone has an issue with the 'get the activation key' page, there is a CAPTCHA below the name and email address. If you don't see it, you may have to change your browser settings (I use the new Edge and I had to turn off Tracking Protection for this site in order to see it).

Question - is there still a "professional" version? I searched the MyDraw website and couldn't find evidence of one. I have a GAOTD version installed that shows Version 2.0.0, license: Professional, Build date: 12/11/2017.

My version is obviously older and presumably has fewer features, but I'm wondering what the difference is between today's offer and the Pro version.

Thanks.

Hope2009, there's only one edition of MyDraw currently - the professional edition. So you don't loose any features with the new version. Its exactly the opposite, you get a lot of new features and improvements with MyDraw 4.3.0 compared to MyDraw 2.0.

I finally got it to register. When I copied the activation code from the GAOTD email there was an extra space at the end. I couldn't see it when I pasted the code, but it was there. Backing up 1 space fixed the problem.

Wow. A very nice giveaway. Thank you MyDraw. I had an older version of this app for many years - up until my home burned in the 2018 California fires. Still, I gotta say, I liked the old version better, back before the days of the space hogging ribbon and side bars big enough to be seen from across the street, where I could work with a page and still see another app I was using for a guideline.

Wow, this has a LOT of diagram types, templates and shape libraries to cover a broad range of uses. Just start exploring under their "Resources" and "Features".

However, too bad they don't have a single-page site-wide "site index map" to reveal just how many pages of example, video tutorial, use cases, etc. that they offer. I can't find again just where I saw their page on the wide variety of automated display styles of hierarchical data for different purposes. You have to explore their website thoroughly to discover how extensive their support via examples really is.

(Ah, found it under "Features" "Automatic Layouts" -- amazing visual aids)

Thanks for this update from 2 years ago!

p.s. Unlike that previous time, I see no download link this time for MacOS. Would the download for Mac from the mydraw.com website work with today's GOTD license key? (If I find out myself, I'll report back.)

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

HMarx,

OK, finally got around to installing on my Mac. Without a download link for MacOS provided on this GOTD page (unlike the last time 2 years ago), I simply downloaded the installer (DMG) file directly from the mydraw.com website.

I then attempted to use the same license code as was originally sent for my Windows machine, but as TK noted (above) there is only one unique code per machine per e-mail address.

Accordingly, I then used the same URL provided in the README.TXT file that came with the Windows version to apply for another license, entered the different e-mail address for the Mac, received another code and it registered and runs just fine.

Thank you very much, Nevron and GOTD, for this great offer!

On Mac OSX mydraw 4.3 does not register if Visual Studio for Mac (Xamarin) is installed (this is a known bug resolved on version 4.2 with a special compiled version). There is no work arround. Version 4.2 for Xamarin from the vendor download link does not accept the license code from GAOTD.

This is superb software even though it cannot be properly evaluated in a few minutes or even hours. I would liken it to a friendlier version of Adobe Illustrator, not as complex but you can certainly work faster and more confidently. My use is strictly personal, but up 'til now I have been doing my posters, greeting cards, business cards and general whatnot with Adobe Photoshop. Now I can move beyond and get superior results with MyDraw, not to mention being able to work faster and use design templates for more reproducible results.

One note as a suggestion: click on "file" from the main menu and at the bottom you will see an "options" button. The second tab there allows you to deselect "automatically check for updates". MyDraw was very easy to create a registered portable version which means you can put it on a USB memory stick (pen drive) and take it with you. In all, my portable version ended up at 126 MB in size with all the templates.

Such complete and comfortable software I have never seen here as a giveaway. The authors are to be congratulated for such a fine product and thanked for this most generous offering.

Get it while you can, even if you don't see an immediate need for it. I am absolutely sure that you will eventual want to produce a top-notch garage sale poster or whatever and be happy for the tiny space it takes up on your hard drive.

I followed the directions to activate... doesn't work...
I tried 3 different email addresses and all 3 key codes sent to me from GAOTD failed to activate. I also uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled to no avail... All 3 get a "Failed to connect to activation server" Http status Bad Request. It seems the keycodes sent from GAOTD do not work on the MyDraw activation server. The software looks promising but until the activation process actually works, it's not worth it.

Reply   |   Comment by Jim  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Jim, I followed the activation steps and encountered no problems. Is there a proxy or a VPN you use by any chance? A firewall and an antivirus maybe? This may interfere with the server activation.

Jim,
I monitored the installation/activation in a win7 ult 32-bit V/Box VM. Looking at the added & modified registry keys from activation, there was an entry where a new inbound firewall rule was added to allow mDNS traffic. Could your firewall be blocking activation? What would happen if you turned it off temporarily to activate?

Mine gave the 404 error and I got frustrated after trying several times. Try closing the app and trying again. I did, and it was activated despite telling me there was an error. Weird...

Vance, UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: I paste the key into the field, looked for and extra blank field AFTER the key... there was none... BUT I thought WTH, what happens if I backspace the LAST number off? So I DID... AND IT WORKED... NOT REMOVING A BLANK SPACE, but removing the LAST NUMBER IN THE KEY... it activated just fine... So I'm good...

This program uses an astronomical amount of memory - up to 4GB when starting, and over 1.5GB when sitting idly on the start screen (without any drawing open yet).

Note that in order to enter the license key, you'll need to actually create a drawing (any type is fine), as the menus aren't shown until a drawing is open. Once this is done, you can choose "File" --> "About" from the menu, and enter the license key when the About dialog is displayed.

Hi, installed and licenced with no problems at all. Had a look around and it seems a really good piece of software. I was a PM and used Visio at work. This is at least as good as that and I think probably better. As I do not work now it is certainly way good enough for my home use.

как получить код активации? (Win10)

Reply   |   Comment by В.В. Мос  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-11)

В.В. Мос,

How to get an activation code? (Win10)

GOTD downloads, contain all the information that's needed (could be off, don't know, never had that), READ THE README.txt files.
When not having done the registration online, you're to late. It takes an online activation and can be activated once with one license per system.

However, when the software is installed on the day of offer and have a license code, you might be able to activate it anyway after the GOTD. Than it does and than it doesn't! :)

Next time, write in English. It will go faster, nor that there will be other reactions that can be.

Good Luck & Enjoy the next GOTD's! :)

PS: Have a happy workweek & weekend! :)

darres,

As mentioned above:

Start the program, start a new project.
Than a windows will open, click at the left upper icon to get a drop down menu, choose About.
Now put in the activation key.

Might still work, activations aren't always needed to put in the same day! :)

Good Luck & Enjoy! :)

An excellent program that perfectly converts Visio files to dxf format than the Visio program itself.

It should open GED files that can be exported from "AgelongTree" ("Tree of Life" - so called in Russia).
