below is a response to a message on the Sodipodi list
As Dia is more design oriented than sodipodi i was surprised that he had
not even considered Dia
I was thinking maybe i will have time to produce more shapes soon.
If you feel like making slightly less serious shapes, I was thinking about
maps shapes (interstate, highway etc) and military shapes
Ooh Tanks, got any example bitmaps? Ill get drawing today and tommorow.
I have been thinking about doing map shapes but i think i need to be able
to click objects to objects (rather than using just grid alignment) before
i could do nicely tiled maps. (i have not given this a lot of thought, i
just dont immediately see how i could produce really nice maps in Dia).
I hope to get a demo copy of Visio in the next day or two so i will be
able to study the inteface and provide some example files.
Do we have anywhere to store files? an archive/gallery or do we just
attach files to bug reports?
you did not expand these acronyms anywhere in your email or on the web
page so i need to make absolutely sure we are talking about the same thing
CAD Computer Aided Design
CAM " " Modelling ???
I believe CAM is usually Computer Aided Manufacturing.
