Description goc 2003-06-01 20:08:08 UTC
I'd like to see import dia files, also compressed ones, so as to
easily include them in any documentation.


Thank you!

Reassigned to Betina.

As ooo doesn't have support for dia's shapes, it should embed the .dia document
and edit it with dia when double-clicking on it? For a general approach,
consider gimp .xcf files too.

Comment 6 caolanm 2010-09-07 14:33:47 UTC
The diafilter is now available as for Linux x86 and
Linux x86_64. There are some limits due to the blocker bugs of this issue which
if/when fixed would allow better import quality.

Seeing as a dia filter doesn't make sense without the ability to use the dia
"shape" files to display the format and those are bundled inside dia which is
under the GPL, the filter corresponding needs to be under the GPL as well and so
can't be directly part of which is under the LGPL

closed, implemented.
