As Dia is more design oriented than sodipodi i was surprised that he had

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
(infantry/tank/artillery etc).

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.
