Re: Default Font and Modifying Programmed DiaObject

Specifically, with the link between sheet files and shapes, the
Flowchart sheet refers to a Box which is a programmed diaObject, but I
cannot see in the sheet file or the shapes dir how Dia knows that it
should be the programmed diaObject.

The only way to modify the default font would be changing the code in
lib/attributes.c. But even than this is not used "application wide", but
only for objects not providing there own default.

Also, I modified the Flowchart sheet svg object .shape files to use my
color palette for fill and stroke, but there are a few elements which
are listed as "Porgrammed DiaObject" that I cannot figure out where to
modify. I would like a consistent fill and stroke color if possible.

The whole directory objects/ is full of implmentations of "Programmed
Objects". If they initialize their defaults with attributes_get_background()
and attributes_get_foreground() their default can be changed with the color
selector in the toolbox.

But if you modified the default object specifc by double-clicking that one
would be used. Delete ~/.dia/defaults.dia to get rid of all objec specific

I also had a hard time discovering the connection between the .sheet
and the .shape files. How are they connected?

Like files and directories.

This is a great program, keep up the good work. It is the best diagram
tool I have used that supports defined connection points.

Thanks ;)
