CADE Application

What is CADE Application?

CADE from Weresc is a free alternative to Microsoft’s Visio, a vector graphics application that has recently been included as part of the Microsoft Office suite. CADE and Visio are competitors in the field of diagramming software, but whereas Visio is a paid application, CADE is free.

CADE prides itself on being compact and lightweight than its bigger counterpart, but it also allows for basic Visio functions; CADE can be used to create diagrams, flowcharts, schematics, and maps that can be used in Visio (and vice-versa; e.g. Visio-created files can be read in CADE as well). Blocks, shapes, and other object images (raster or vector) can be imported from Visio and accessed, manipulated and edited in CADE; furthermore, just as in Visio, working with CADE does not require a particular set of drawing skills. CADE also enables users to share drawings via Internet – drawings can be viewed by any browser, for example – although manipulation of the drawing a CADE installation must be present.

CADE also features collaborative modes via multiple-user markups, annotation, and locking/unlocking for project management. In addition, CADE can be customized with additional features, with support for scripting.
