Transcript of Dia Flowcharts

Dia Flowcharts Inspired by the Windows program "Visio." Dia depends heavily on a menu on the right mouse button inside the diagram. This menu contains all the diagram-specific actions allowing you to create new canvases, select the tools you wish to use, and set your preferences. Dia contains a plug-in that allows scripting in Python. Menu Blank Canvas Dia is a GTK+ based diagram creation program
for GNU/Linux, Unix and Windows. Dia is a completely free program that you can
download on their website: http://live.gnome.org/Dia
The newest version of Dia is Version 0.97. The program contains most of the shapes associated with
flowcharts. If there is a shape that Dia doesn't have, the program
allows you to add shapes to its menu. I found that the progam was fairly easy to use and navigate. The arrows that connect the shapes stay attached if you decide to move things around. You can also bend the arrows so that they can go around objects instead of through them. There was a small problem with writing text in a few of the shapes. It wouldn't allow you to write in a few of shapes, but if you created a text box and put it in the shape, the problem was solved. Besides the few errors, I found that the program was
easy to use and would suit the kind of work we would
be doing with flowcharts. The program also allows you to use a
variety of colours in your flowchart.
