If you have the need to quickly pull together a simple view for a diagram, document or drawing, there’s no need to spin up a modelling tool or wrestle with Vision (or more likely wrestle with your IT department to get them to install Vision for you!) Look no further than UMLet (That’s https://www.umlet.com/ ) 

I’ve been using it for years but just thought it a good idea to mention it here.

It’s pretty simple to get the hang of, and using text based programming makes it really easy to copy and paste areas of your diagram. Take a look at a simple Sequence Diagram I pulled together in about 5 minutes:

Which have the underlying code of:

SUBMITTER~id1|SERVICE (Private)~id2|SERVICE (Public)~id3|SIP (Private)~id4|SIP (Public)~id5|COMPOSITOR (Public)~id6|EVALUATOR (Public)~id7

Enjoy!
