Getting Started Part 2: UI Basics

Let’s open a template and explore the SmartDraw user interface in more detail.

Every SmartDraw diagram has its own specialized SmartPanel docked to the left of the drawing area. These put automated drawing tools and symbols specific to that kind of diagram right at your fingertips.

At the top, you’ll find the Ribbon, which includes lots of familiar drawing and design tools organized into tabs that are the same regardless of which template you choose to start with.

Most of the real estate of the UI is the Work Area. Here you can drag and drop symbols from the SmartPanel, add lines and text.
