ConceptDraw Updated to 1.7.5 -- CS Odessa (once again a TidBITS sponsor), has released version 1.7.5 of the $125 ConceptDraw Standard and $250 ConceptDraw Professional (see "Making the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553 for a full review). New features include export to PDF and support for mouse scroll wheels in Mac OS X; CS Odessa also made changes to improve the interface, extend the Stamp tool's capabilities, and enhance outline mode in the Professional version. Version 1.7.5 also fixes a number of bugs with HTML and EPS export, print sizes, drag & drop from libraries in Mac OS X, editing text, and more. The update is free for users of previous versions of ConceptDraw; it's a 5.1 MB (Standard) or 7.4 MB (Professional) download. [ACE]
