Request for option to include shape definitions in output files
Submitted by ell..@..nt.com
Can we have a file option which results in all shape definitions being included in the output file?
At the moment a downsteam processor of dia files cannot get details of the connection points of shapes in order to semantically understand the diagram. Some of this information is in .shape files, but some information on the basic shapes seems to be hardcoded into dia and not available outside.
Of course, the next RFE would be to accept these shape definitions in an input file.
This would make it significantly easier for other applications to generate diagrams for dia to display and edit.
