    Thanks for your reply.

    Inkscape is more likely a photo editor, unlike Visio.

    any other suggestion ?

    Hi
    What sort of layouts are you doing, I use libreoffice and a plethora of network icons..
    For example: https://extensions.libreoffice.org/e...work-equipment

    Visio offers plenty of layouts, Networking, Systems, Workflow, Development, etc...

    Regarding your reply, to use libreoffice and network extensions, is it capable of providing similar functionality?

    Thanks

    Hi
    Yes all very similar. Check the extensions main page for the full list. Fire up LibreDraw and download/import the oxt files.

    Inkscape is not a photo editor. Inkscape is an SVG graphics editor.

    Dia is probably as close as you'll get to Visio. Or you can maybe run
    Visio with WINE, if it's supported.

    That's good news. Tried a couple of years ago, without good results. A customer now relies on Win7 VMs only for Visio, whilst running some other proprietary tailored app using Wine ( it runs on XP, Wine but nothing else ). Already sent out an email to them asking whether they're interested to get rid of the VMs.

    Standard site I go to when looking for an "Alternative to"
    The following links to suggestions for Viso.

    Personally, I've used Dia for diagrams I've whipped up quickly using simple shapes, but I'd be the first to say that it's not anywhere close to Visio when I'm building a complex diagram.

    Not really the same, but I've used impress (The Presentation app) to create diagrams.
    Won't have a large library of objects like you describe, but like many graphics programs you can draw simple shapes, connect them with lines, label everything.
