Cons

The only problem I have had with this software is its weakness in exporting formats compatible with Latex.

Vahid A.

It's hard for me to find something to dislike about Inkscape. I'd only say that it could use some tweaks in the interface itself, especially in the dark theme.

No option to see colors are print or screen-friendly. Inkscape lags behind premium vector graphic options.

Chamara W.

Cons

Formatting is the biggest challenge, especially when you have large projects it is difficult to view all and you loose track.

Kimberly G.

More than once I had to make the same changes to a diagram cause I misplaced or lost an updated version. That is my biggest pain with visio, and is ultimately why I switched to Lucid Chart.

Using auto-arrange features can result in errors such as wrong diagram arrangement.

Easiest way on Windows to design Diagrams

Reviewed 2 years ago

Besides exporting the rest was good, I made the diagrams I needed easily and without issues and they look great.

Pros

It has a lot of templates and options, Was doing it by hand but was never happy with the results have a lot of icons and is much better than web based solutions, The iconography could be simpler and modernized some Icons are really old, but you can use your own download an Icon Pack of Awesome Font and put it in the Diagram.

Cons

The exports could be better, JPEG default quality is trash is better to Export it as an .SVG and then open it with Inkscape and then export it.
