Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DIR-220) Architectural overview
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2007 19:41:33 GMT
I have to admit that I also mainly use Inkscape for doing pretty diagrams
these days.  Inkscape has connectors which follow contours and follow shapes
when moved just like Visio and Dia, and has the benefit of being SVG based
so you can use the vectors in other artwork without exporting bitmaps and
suffering from pixelation upon scaling.  It may be just slightly more work
if you have never used it before, but it is pretty easy to make good looking
graphics once you get going.

I have attached a simple diagram that I made in about 2 minutes with
Inkscape.

+1 for Inkscape.
