Re: new features request


I think you will like the bezierregions if you become acquainted with them.  You can make straight edges and sharp corners by playing with the segment controls.  The line width is applicable to the border which is exposed when the backgound is a different color.

Hi all,
I just discovered Dia and I'm excited about using it for origami diagramming, such as this example from the internet: . Origami diagramming has a rough international standard seen in books published around the world. Here's an article on a proposed standard dating from 1990: .

I would like to begin using Dia for origami diagramming, but there are a few features that I find missing in it. I would like it to include a rotation tool for rotating objects by any angle, and also it would be nice to be add a border/outline property to lines and arcs instead of just the width and color properties. That way you can make a hollow arrow shape easily by making a thick line of the background color and adding a different border color to it.

I look forward to seeing the next versions of Dia come out soon.

Thanks for all your hard work,
