Re: Dia: Why is it so hard to do simple things?

Hmm.  I guess I wouldn't like that.  Dia doesn't do the same work as GIMP and Inkscape.  Why should they be the same?

GIMP is clearly not for the same work, so wouldn't expect the same interface, Inkscape is closer, but I use it differently - always for page size work.  Dia I use for larger than page size, or perhaps more accurately for free form work.  In Dia I have complete flexibility.   I guess if I could load up an F size sheet I could get by with sheet limits.

I would rather have Inkscape features and functions in Dia rather than Inkscape GUI in Dia.

Fine with that.

This behaviour would be more in line with e.g. inkscape or gimp,
or with certain CAD programs, where one works on a limited area.

Anyway, this is not very important to me. I'm already used to
Dia as it is.
