The update for ConceptDraw PROJECT brings it to version 10.0.1 and is featured with the set of improvements and fixes. ConceptDraw PROJECT v10.0.1 has been enhanced with Improved recurring task usability that helps easily schedule project tasks that occur on a regular basis.

Mac users who are working with larger projects will appreciate the enhanced scroll performance, which is important when dealing with large task lists. In addition, those of them with a passion for Apple technologies will like the improved representation of the application in Dark Mode. Also, the update includes a pack of quality issues fixes.
