Raptor is a great tool for learning flowcharts and programming skills. However, the tool has some disadvantages. In this post, we will look at some disadvantages of the Raptor flowchart tool.
The flowchart tool only supports Windows operating system platform. There is no support for other platforms like Linux, Mac etc. We have to simulate the tool with simulating compatibility environments Wine, etc.
There is not template support. To draw each flowchart, we have to start from scratch
start – end symbols.
The Yes/No branch is just the opposite. The Yes branch in Raptor is on the left side.Most of the other tools branch the True conditions to the right.
No Cloud Integration
There is no support to store the flowcharts online. Flowcharts are saved on the local machine. There is no cloud integration. Single point of failure, if the computer fails
to start, all the flowcharts are gone, unless you have some backup strategy in-place.
No community support for the tool. We have to search online and other documentation to fix the errors.
No straightforward date support and functions to work with dates. We have to compute using existing Current_ functions.
Errors in Raptor flowchart. Debugging the Raptor flowchart is somewhat difficult. Some errors doesn’t point the symbol where the error occurs.
