Stitch Diagram Software for the Mac (and PC)

Alert!  The replacement for CanvasX is finally available for those who use Macs.  It is now called Canvas Draw, and is on sale until September 15, 2015. (There is also a trial version to test.)  Like Adobe's Illustrator, there is a steep learning curve for this graphics software program but it appears to be very versatile.  Canvas X was used by a great many people in the needlepoint world until it was dropped.  (The current PC version of Canvas X is Canvas 16 but Canvas 15 is also still available.)

While reading the discussion about it on NP Nation, I discovered that Ursa Software also has a stitch diagramming program called StitchGraph that works on both Macs and PCs.

If you are looking for software to create diagrams and charts, Linda K. Reinmuller has a list of programs that might work for you on her blog.  It's at the bottom of the page, under "Blog Archive."  Thanks, Linda!
