Re: Chen-ERD and Crow's Foot Diagrams?

Actually, just thinking on a fast and dirty way to handle this for Crows
Footing rather than completely reinventing the wheel with DiaCanvas.

While it isn't really "proper" support for the model and only the
diagram, I was wondering if it was possible to just add the types of
"endings" (ie. the crow's feet and such) to the start and ending line
options pulldown lists and handle it that way?

Just seemed like a fast easy way to support Crow's Feet and it is what
they happen to do in Visio anyway?

Anyone see any major obstacles to changing Dia to work that way?

I apologize if it is a repeated request. I imagine it would be quite

However, I would be willing to try and undertake this if someone could
point me where to begin (ie. a description of what's involved etc.) in
terms of programming/editing. I imagine it's not so difficult as just
requiring a lot of slog work (ie. nothing brilliant required as the
is basically already done).

and er, I didn't know what DiaCanvas2 was and the DiaCanvas widget
on the Dia site appears not to work.

It's at:
