He currently serves as the Vice President of Marketing at SmartDraw.com. Prior to SmartDraw, Dan held various positions at Microsoft (including original member of the PowerPoint for Windows and Word for Windows 95 teams), HP, and was CEO of Namezero.com. He is also the holder of several patents in software and Internet technology. Doug Lowe has been writing computer books since 1981, including nearly 40 For Dummies books, among them PowerPoint 2007 For Dummies and Word 2007 All–in–One Desk Reference For Dummies. He lives in sunny Fresno, California, where the motto is “Fres–YES!,” (unfortunately, that’s true) with his wife, the youngest of his three daughters, and a couple of dogs (a goofylooking six–month–old Shar–Pei/Black Lab mix named Lucy and a yellow lab named Odie). He’s one of those obsessive–compulsive decorating nuts who creates computer–controlled Halloween decorations that rival Disney’s Haunted Mansion.

Ok but a printed book would have been better.

The information that is needed to get started with this program was confusing.

If you have SmartDraw, there is not a lot of support out there. This book helps. It has a lot of useful information about how to navigate the software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really quite good 9 Dec. 2010
By Muriel Vasconcellos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Of the two manuals I could find on SmartDraw, this one is far more complete. The explanations are really clear, and the index is quite good.
SmartDraw is a powerful program. Perhaps because it has such a variety of applications, it's difficult to anticipate all the functions that a user might want to perform.
I created a landscape design using this manual, and I found answers to most of my questions with little or no difficulty.

By S. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great new book that shows not only detailed, how-to information for SmartDraw users, but also shows how to communicate more effectively with visuals, work with Microsoft Office, create better PowerPoint presentations, and much more! Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
