Wireframes and wireframe flowcharts

Visual Paradigm already had extensive possibilities to model wireframes for applications, apps and websites.
Starting with version 15 it is also possible to connect the wireframes and create a clear wireframe flowchart.

It is even possible to animate this wireframe flowchart so you can visualise the flow of an application or website.

STEPS wizards

Seamless Techniques Expressed in Prescribed Steps (STEPS) is a very powerful function that will assist users in performing repetitive tasks. STEPS wizards guide users for example when:

  • Planning sprints
  • Develop CRUD models
  • Performing a competitive analysis with a Radar Chart (only Enterprise).


Enhanced Customer Journey Mapping

The Customer Journey Tool was already extremely powerful. Now the tool is can support User Experience Designers even better. Some new features:

  • Lanes can now be moved by simply dragging and dropping them
  • Lanes can be hidden (temporarily)
  • Besides naming a stage, you can give it a brief description and have it appear below the stage name.

visual paradigm 15 REST api designer

Visual API designer

One of the most exciting new features is the new Visual API designer which makes is possible to design your own RESTful within Visual Paradigm 15. The design can then be generated in accordance with the Swagger 2 or API Blueprint specification.

Visual Paradigm Standard

visual paradigm 15 bi directional project reference

Diagram Templates and Examples

Visual Paradigm Community Circle lets you view and learn Visual Paradigm by importing selected diagrams straight into the Visual Paradigm platform for experimenting.

Bidirectional Project Reference

Project reference is a mechanism to facilitate model reuse across projects and to maintain model consistency among your design. Bidirectional references allow two project model elements to create reciprocal linkage while simultaneously checking for infinite model elements references with cyclical dependency.

More features for VP Standard users

  • User Story 3C’s en Scenario
  • Wireframe en Storyboard

Hide tool descriptions for more modelling space in Visual Paradigm

Hide tool descriptions for more modelling space in Visual Paradigm

Sometimes you just need some extra screen space to fit that model. It’s easy to gain some extra pixels by hiding the tool names.

Hide tool descriptions to gain extra screen space

Every pixel counts when modelling. That’s why in Visual Paradigm it is possible to (temporarily) hide information that is not always needed so you will gain some extra space for your models. If you are a bit familiar with Visual Paradigm you probably now most of the names of the tools you frequently use. So you can easily hide the descriptions without loosing much. This video show you how.
