Dia replacement?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Can any one recommend a replacement for Dia? I find its lack of support for rotations very restrictive. I'm not looking for a general purpose vector graphics program but a diagramming application. Specifically, something that contains templates/stencils for circuits, logic, etc. It's more of an updated (more "user-friendly") xfig

doesn't openoffice-draw offer such a thing? (don't have Ooo-draw on my box in order to check it)

OpenOffice Draw doesn't have the templates (that is, premade pictures/symbols). That is, if you want to draw a resistor you have to create 5 lines zig-zagged yourself.

Have you looked at InkScape? It seems pretty good, tho' it is more of a general purpose program.

 

THAC rpms has updates for InkScape if bleeding edge is needed.

 

Hope this helps.

spinynorman,

I've looked at Kivio and it has imported Dia's templates. Apparently, however, it does not support rotation too.

 

arctic,

I've looked at OOo Draw before posting here and find its connectors excellent. Unfortunately, as DragonMage pointed out, it doesn't have templates. Fortunately, there's a logic template (actually only an sxd) in ooextras so I used it in this case. However, I'll encounter this same problem again in the future when I use circuits.

 

siege,

I use InkScape actually for general purpose vector graphics

 

I might create templates (at least for the ones I use) for OOo Draw and post it in ooextras in the future when I have the time and motivation
