Visio for Mac

Farah, Katra
Hi everyone,

I’m hoping to get recommendations on software that is similar to Visio for Mac. I’ll be using this mainly to map out our email communications plan and probably other communications initiatives.

Happy to hear any pros and cons about the programs/software that you are using.

Many thanks,
Katra

OmniGraffle and Sketch would be the two I recommend. OmniGraffle is closest to Visio but different. Sketch is powerful but can be a resource hog.

Katra,

If you have a Google account - Lucidchart Diagrams is a good option.
- Google Drive > New > More > Lucidchart Diagrams (lots of YouTube training videos or go to lucid.com)
or (if not there)
- Google Drive > New > More > Connect more apps - then search for - Lucidchart Diagrams - Online (with the orange logo) - install that one.

BTW - Lucidpress is a good option for InDesign or any other product for posters, fliers, bi-folds. tri-folds, etc. - Google Drive > New > More > Connect more apps - then search for - Lucidpress - Online (with the green logo) - install that one.

I've only used it as a brainstorming/sitemapping tool, but xMind also has some Visio-like functionality in the pro version.

In reply to this post by Farah, Katra
As Aren mentioned, if you really want to run Visio, you can run a Parallels virtual machine on your Mac (works great) and actually run Visio.

If you want to stay completely in Mac-land, LucidChart is pretty nice (and web-based)

Custom Google Search Results

Schroeder, Ms. Karole
Is anyone getting weird results from their own Google Custom Search Engine that includes your results mixed in with outside results?

RE: Custom Google Search Results

Kreider,Eric W

OK. I’m REALLY glad to hear somebody else is seeing some odd behavior.

 

Karole, I know this isn’t the same thing but it feels like Google did something big in the back ground.

 

On Friday, I got notified that all of my properties, in Webmaster tools, had seen a dramatic increase in 404 errors. Going to the error report I saw content 404ing that hadn’t been on the site in literally YEARS. Old working directories and defunct entities. Some of the content was sitting, un-published, in our CMS but the most frustrating was urls that simply didn’t exist – www.uakron.edu/foo where foo had been deleted two years ago. On further investigation I found that one of the sub-sites that I had given Webmaster tools ownership to, for their directory, had uploaded a sitemap in June of 2012 and, low and behold, that map had been processed on Friday of last week! From what I can tell for the first time ever. I deleted the map and took back ownership of the site but haven’t seen enough crawl yet to see the reduction in 404s I’m hoping for.

 

Anybody else?

 

Also, if anyone has insight on how to reverse the result of the bad map I’d appreciate hearing it.

RE: Custom Google Search Results

Schroeder, Ms. Karole
You opened my mind: I was trying to get my calendar results to appear, thinking I had to use the dynamic options... But I had it set to include other sites, not realizing that would go outside Tarleton. Just switched them back and that solved the problem... Of the outside results. Still don't have calendar event results, which are dynamically generated.

We saw this at the end of August, and were pretty puzzled about the whole thing. Same thing, non-existent URLs, (maybe mistyped? Who knows?) I've redone the sitemap, but the really odd thing was that SiteImprove didn't find any of these same odd URLs.

We're not seeing them in Siteimprove either. And it's not mistypings' there's 40,000 of them! It's definitely the bad map. I just don't understand why, after two years of being ignored, it would suddenly get processed.

RE: Custom Google Search Results

McBride, Ian S.

We had that happen as well. A sitemap submitted through the Google Search Console (which used to be called Google Webmaster Tools) in August 2011 was processed on Sunday.


Also, the Google Custom Search Engine was non-responsive yesterday for us in Vermont, and I saw reports of it being broken from people at the University of Albany, William & Mary, and University of Iowa, but working in schools in Texas and California, so it may have been an East Coast / upper Midwest regional issue.


Naturally, no communication from Google about any of this.

    On Friday, I got notified that all of my properties, in Webmaster tools, had seen a dramatic increase in 404 errors. Going to the error report I saw content 404ing that hadn’t been on the site in literally YEARS. Old working directories and defunct entities. Some of the content was sitting, un-published, in our CMS but the most frustrating was urls that simply didn’t exist – www.uakron.edu/foo <http://www.uakron.edu/foo> where foo had been deleted two years ago. On further investigation I found that one of the sub-sites that I had given Webmaster tools ownership to, for their directory, had uploaded a sitemap in June of 2012 and, low and behold, that map had been processed on Friday of last week! From what I can tell for the first time ever. I deleted the map and took back ownership of the site but haven’t seen enough crawl yet to see the reduction in 404s I’m hoping for.

RE: Custom Google Search Results

wbaumgardner@calbaptist.edu

Sounds like Google accidentally processed all sitemaps (perhaps by mistake?) for all Search Console properties.

 

Normally to resolve sitemap issues I submit a new sitemap for indexing, and that usually does the trick as whichever sitemap was last processed is usually the one they use for indexing and search results.

 

Thanks,

We had that happen as well. A sitemap submitted through the Google Search Console (which used to be called Google Webmaster Tools) in August 2011 was processed on Sunday.

 

Also, the Google Custom Search Engine was non-responsive yesterday for us in Vermont, and I saw reports of it being broken from people at the University of Albany, William & Mary, and University of Iowa, but working in schools in Texas and California, so it may have been an East Coast / upper Midwest regional issue.

 

Naturally, no communication from Google about any of this.

We're not seeing them in Siteimprove either. And it's not mistypings' there's 40,000 of them! It's definitely the bad map. I just don't understand why, after two years of being ignored, it would suddenly get processed.

We saw this at the end of August, and were pretty puzzled about the whole thing. Same thing, non-existent URLs, (maybe mistyped? Who knows?) I've redone the sitemap, but the really odd thing was that SiteImprove didn't find any of these same odd URLs.

    OK. I’m REALLY glad to hear somebody else is seeing some odd behavior.
    
    Karole, I know this isn’t the same thing but it feels like Google did something big in the back ground.
