Subject:Interactive diagrams? From:"Ned Bedinger" <ned -dot- b -at- charter -dot- net> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Fri, 20 Feb 2004 12:53:54 -0800
I have a new documentation project: creating interactive color wiring
diagrams from existing b&w hard copy.
I'm pretty much resigned to recreating the diagrams in a package that will
do what I need. I've done similar work in Visio, and I like Visio's ability
to go from graphic to database to graphic, but I could squeak by without
that extra capability.
Since I don't have the software already, I'm wide open to suggestions. My
preference is for something in the shareware or public domain.
Does anyone know of a useful tool? Thanks a big bunch for any suggestions.
