    It helps you annotate and position elements for maximum clarity: clearly label elements with icons, multi-line text, HTML, or even multiple labels and use the properties mapper to turn an element’s user-defined data into visual elements. yEd is a pure Java Swing application. It runs on all Windows, Unix/Linux, and Mac OS versions.
