Writing / Research Tip Tuesday

Today's tip comes to you from Elise C. and features a great, free program to play with. Check it out!

"I'm using this great plot mapping system right now that is free to download called Dia. Here is the link to download it. http://sourceforge.net/projects/dia-installer/ It can be used for anything you need to map and it's all customizable including shapes, colors, arrow placement. It's really fun to fiddle with."

Thanks Elise! I had trouble downloading the program from your link, but this one worked great. Dia seems like a lot of fun (and an absolutely awesome outlet for my procrastination skills) but so far I'm a bit overwhelmed. Can't wait until I have more time to play with it.

Does anyone else use this program? Have any tips or tricks to share? If you download it, please come back and let me know how you like it!

  1. I haven't tried it, but I might have time to play with it this weekend...hmmm.

  2. I downloaded it, and started checking it out, but will need some solid time to really give it its due. I think there is a pretty serious learning curve to it. (These are the exact shapes that always foul me up when I'm doing chore charts and graphs for my kids--I'm hoping the program will make it easier...)
