What is Creative Docs .NET?

Creative Docs .NET is a vector-based graphic design tool with support for rich text, ideal to quickly write short documents, manuals, posters, illustrations, schemas, plans, flow charts, and much more.

The interface is tailored for high productivity: it does never get in your way. Creative Docs .NET tools are simple, yet powerful. All styles and attributes can be modified interactively with a minimum number of mouse clicks. A color gradient, for instance, can be modified directly by dragging its handles in the document window.

Note: This software is being actively developed.

Creative Docs .NET 3.x is available for free as a full-featured version. It comes with no warranty whatsoever.

The previous version 3.0.1 had a serious problem when saving its documents; in most cases, these documents could not be reopened afterwards. This has been fixed in the version 3.0.2 release.

We have invested time in the low level framework on which Creative Docs .NET is built and we have replaced the FreeImage library, which was used to read and write bitmap images, with a Microsoft component. The version 3.0.1 is based on this updated framework and should therefore be more stable when creating documents with lots of images.
