Remember WYSIWYG? What You See Is What You Get? Basically, that means what you see on the computer screen is what you get when you print or display as a finished product.
There’s a new kid in town and the name is WYSIWYN. I like the concept, which may have started with Delineato Pro, an inexpensive Mac diagramming app that’s also good for mind mapping, brainstorming, flow charts, org charts, and reducing complex processes into manageable visual chunks.
Delineato is Italian for outline. WYSIWYN is a take on WYSIWYG and means What You See Is What You Need. I like that. That’s what Delineato does. It displays what you need and nothing more.
Diagramming apps tend to be complex with a rather stiff learning curve. That’s not the case with Delineato.
Start using Delineato right away by pulling up a theme to match your needs. The screen canvas is virtually infinite in size. Images can be dropped onto the canvas, and you get multiple shapes and connectors good for flow charts, processes, diagramming, mind mapping, or anything else that needs a visual flow.
It comes with built-in Fullscreen mode. Click to edit directly or drag and drop shapes and connectors from a floating palette.
The onscreen canvas also has grids and smart alignment guides to keep the diagram elements from wandering.
Finished diagrams can be shared via Email, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, or printed out as PDF, EPS, or JPG files. The WYSIWYN concept means you get just a basic number of tools and capabilities, which reduces the learning curve, which makes Delineato Pro useful right away.
