Oh, pipe down, NoOp. I asked once before and didn't get any answers I
wanted to use; I don't remember for sure why I didn't go to yEd then, but I
didn't. I remeber having trouble using some of these for flowcharts. I
didn't keep notes. Perhaps I was holding out for open-source which I
usually prefer. Now I have a more pressing need, and I'm using yEd anyway
and I love it.
The several years was to when I actually seriously tried Dia and gave up.
Why does it matter enough to you to try to catch me out?
