I miss MacDraw! Replacement suggestions?

I miss MacDraw, a program for doing simple drawings: boxes with text in them, arrows, etc. Basic stuff, stuff I don't want to use a large complicated program for. During the many years since it was around I have never found a program as easy to use. Any suggestions for a current program that will do the same thing?

Thanks!
Dan

I think Paint X might do what you want.

Assuming you want a vector based drawing program, look at OmniGraffle or EazyDraw. The former is great for charts and the later as a general vector drawing program.

Paintbrush http://paintbrush.sourceforge.net
is absolutely great, and it's free! (and REALLY easy!)

MacDraft is still around. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macd...07474926?mt=12

It does the basic stuff well, including proper rulers and dimensioning.
