Dia Diagram Editor Review

Dia is a program to draw structured diagrams like flowcharts
A review of Dia Diagram Editor by Tina de Pierre

If you are looking for free software to create flowcharts or visual demonstrations, then Dia Diagram Editor is a good open-source program which provides many drawing tools.

When you first run Dia, you may be a little bit overwhelmed by the amount of features the program offers, but a quick tour of the program and its features, along with the help documentation, should help calm your fears.

Dia Diagram Editor starts off with a blank file which includes grids. Once you get started, you can use layers and drawing tools to create the images you would like. The editor is most suitable for flowcharts and diagrams.

Some of the drawing tools included with the package are circles, boxes, lines, arcs and others. You may also add text elements to your images and toggle snap-to-grid. Keyboard shortcuts are also supported and a good thing to learn if you plan on using Dia Diagram Editor on a regular basis.

We're always a fan of well-coded and stable free software and Dia certainly fulfills that criteria.
