In tests, I was able to clean up my old network diagrams in just a few minutes using GoVisual.

In some cases, the effect was similar to a painting that had undergone restorative cleaning; logic that had been hidden by too many quick modifications was revealed when GoVisual moved objects into regular patterns.

The product works best on diagrams that have followed strict rules. All connections must be properly "glued," a Visio term for making a connection stick to a drawing object such as a PC or a router. Users will need to dive into the advanced options to get the page size to match up with the print options in Visio.

GoVisual costs $49 for a single license and $149 for the Unified Modeling Language version. Either can be downloaded from www.cougtech.com.
