Subject: Is there some shape repository for dia ?

Hi !

Sorry about the newbie question !

I specificaly want to draw some forms like i deed it in visio and did
not found any more shapes than the ones that came in the distribution.

specifically which shapes?  do you mean like HTML forms?

maybe you can find them here,
http://www.microsoft.com/office/visio/evaluation/indepth/samples.asp
or create a screen shot of the shapes you want and send us a link.

If you are not in a hurry, file a bug report in bugzilla and i will see
what i can do.

Drawing basic shapes is not very hard.  I have a few more shapes done but
not quite good enough that i feel happy submitting them to dia and i have
not put them on my webpage yet.
I would much prefer to help you draw the shapes for yourself, and make
suggestions if you have any problems drawing them.
If you do draw shapes please do tell us about them so that we can include
them in dia.

If someone has a plan as to how Dia is going to eventually handle the
hundreds of shapes that will eventually be drawn for it i would like to
hear them.  Visio has a reasonably sensible hierarchy, individual shapes
get included in multiple sheets which although is a bit redundant makes
things simpler (especially for people like that engineer i mentioned who
used the old style resistor shape to represent a spring).

Better go and do some work...

Sincerely
Alan Horkan
