On this page, we will go through an overview of the Raptor tool components. Let’s get familiar with the components of Raptor before building a flow chart using the tool. The main components of the Raptor tool are:
- Workspace Area
- Menu Toolbar

The Workspace area is where flowcharts and UML diagrams are created and run. Initially, this area contains Start and End symbols in the main tab.
The Raptor menu consists of several choices that let the user perform several actions.
Major actions like opening a new file, saving the flowcharts to the hard disk, running the flow charts, etc.
The symbols area consists of flowchart symbols that are used in building a flowchart.
- Assignment symbol
