    CTRL-Y (Redo) and CTRL-Z (Undo) not work if keyboard input language is set to none-English Could you fix this problem please (as same as Copy & Paste that were fixed in version 1.12)

    DRAKON really is convincing. But I have some Issues with the editor tough: (1) I had preferred a tcl-Starpack. Instead you get a set of TCL-Scripts which require you to install ActiveState TCL. Although there are free Interpreters, like Tclpack or freeWrap, I couldn’t get the editor work with them. The ActiveState Software is free for non-commercial-usage. But if you are a commercial user – it gets expensive. (2) The Editor is fine for drawing Flowcharts. But for work with Code it's useless (I tried with C#, maybe other languages work better). It can't reverse-engineer existing code and it hasn’t any support for creating code (Debugging, Syntax-Check, IntelliSense…). Even if you manage to type error free instructions, the generated Code is mostly unreadable for Humans.

    It has been some years that I was looking for something like this and also for its reverse (code-> flowchart), which would a really good addition. Thanks for programming this!

    I have been using Drakon editor for a while now. In addition I get all my teams/projects to use Drakon style chart rules when drawing flows. Flows described with these rules are so much more intuitive than the "old" ways. This saves time (= money) and stops miscommunication. I really like the latest addition of "Smart mode". It is a really, really cool feature which makes creating flows very much faster. Why didn't anyone think of this before! For this alone I strongly recommend this application.
