Bug Description

It would be really interesting to have a "flowchart mode" in Inkscape, allowing easy use of a pre-set of shapes and connectors. (see attached screenshot from MS Visio for the example)

It would allow to use inkscape instead of dia and MS Visio.

maybe this should be converted into a question.

Eduardo > I know this tutorial (and I posted the bug after reading it). What I miss is some predefined shaped that I can connect easily, just like in Dia. People switching from Visio often tell me that it's something they are missing.
