Excellent, thanks. (Thanks too, Haim, re Dia.)

Yes, I don't care about Visio either in the sense that I'd be happy to abandon it at both places in favor of an open source solution.

Interesting the difference between LibreOffice Draw and OpenOffice Draw -- I had been wondering how those general packages compared.

Thanks again. I like Google's stuff so I'll look into Google Draw (likely also Dia and LibreOffice Draw, just to compare).

Google Draw works OK for my purposes but I don't care about Visio. No vector import. SVG and bitmap export.

LibreOffice Draw can import .vsd files. SVG and bitmap export.

OpenOffice Draw can't import .vsd files.
