What application can be used to draw a flowchart like this taken from here. Does anybody know?

My operating system is Windows. Any other operating system is fine. A paid product is fine too :)



IMHO, the graphics in question was made with Microsoft Visio. It's from Microsoft and available in 2019 Standard version for ~440 €. It works on Windows.


Look at diagrams.net (formerly draw.io). It is gratis (free of cost). I use it intensively as a software engineer to architect and design different workflows.

There is also a desktop app for the same web tool.

    Thank you for your contribution, Rami. I hope you don't mind, but I changed the name of the site to reflect their new name. Like you, I still remember it as "draw.io", but it looks like all their branding is now "diagrams.net". Feel free to revert or modify my edit as you see appropriate. – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Oct 20 '20 at 3:01

Before you try MS Visio, have a look at yEd. It's free, works on Windows as well and can also draw flowcharts.

Flowchart with yEd

You can adjust the colors etc. to make it look closer to Visio.

Downside: I needed to get used to its usability. It doesn't behave like I expected it would. Usually I accidentally draw a lot of more boxes than needed.


Inspiration can do this. It costs £60.


That looks like Visio to me. Personally I use Visual Paradigm, its a lot more than a drawing tool ...but it is a very good drawing tool.

    Any reference to "Visual Paradigm", any price indication / free or proprietory? – albert Oct 16 '20 at 12:41
  • It's not free, there are different product versions that range from "not much" to quite expensive. www.visual-paradigm.com – Vman Oct 17 '20 at 18:04
