    Really not an option for me privately, personally...unless it is at a very low cost.
    Though I am not sure about office 365 at work, have to check again...not sure if we can update that at work.
    Itīs really not that crucial to have it at all..not for me personally ..nor at work, ergo free options is way more priorited than Any commercial version.

    Took a look at it, but I donīt think that is what I wanted or want, itīs more like advanced digital freeform whiteboard and sharing options, I do not see any similar flow chart tools, that can be changed and structured nicely..that is
    what I want.

    Wps writer, and the other tools mentioned ..they are all very similar, some tools is missing some options that others have and vice versa.
    I may get the time to check all these and get back with feedback during christmas, but Microsoft whiteboard I think I will skip testing.

    I know what you mean, there's tools that almost do what you need but missing few things that you need or want in it. I really hate that so much.

    Yes, very much agreed. Just today I was testing a new visual git tool (gitsmart) to replace GitKraken, and it's just about perfect, excepting the fact that it cannot compare changes to images. Sigh. Well, with a preference setting it will open an external graphics viewer and display both versions, but it's not QUITE the same.

    It's always like that, isn't it.

    Can any git tool support image file versioning? I thought git was limited to text files. Svn may be better suited.

    Git will keep track of changes in binary files such as images and source files (psd, pld, etc). Viewing those changes is a different matter, and some visual clients support side-by-side image diff viewing. GitSmart does not, but it is possible to tell it to open image files and other binary files with an editor of your choice.

    For example, I have source PhotoLine files which GitSmart will send the two versions of to PhotoLine for comparison. It actually works quite well.

    Try Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) - it's free - I've used it in the past for flow-charting and mind-maps and its pretty good.

    Will take a look at that tomorrow I think, meanwhile I found this...



    https://www.draw.io

    Getting started..
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfY5BN-Saho

    Two things I donīt like though
    - need to onlilne and maybe even logged in to a microsoft account,
    Edited-offline version....
    https://about.draw.io/integrations/#...ations_offline

    And..I canīt seem to find a way to edit manipulate the shapes except for standard scale, rotat transforms...almost any other of these
    kind of flow chart tools can do that, so once again, always something misssing.

    Otherwise it looks great..
    + so easy to drag connectors, change them, you can even drag a shape between two other shapes where ther is a connector ..and hold ctrl while doing so and it will place the new shape inbetween the other shapes.
    + It seem to have quite many shapes available ..on contrary to many others that just comes with basic shapes.
