I love flow chart apps, very nice when writing papers and such.

Some questions:

Can you save as an arbitrary picture format, such as .png, .bmp, etc?

Is there inbuilt help for centerering objects relative to each others (like in Omnigraffle)?

Any plans on using a gfx engine that supports anti-aliasing?

Like this one maybe I'm going to download it some time, when I need it.

I know I'm going to some time in the future

Great work reminds me of MS VISIO Even though we Amiaga users had suff in the early 80 and 90 that MS Visio is now catchthing up to. I lke this APP some really imperssive Cisco flow charts and Office org charts can be mad with this. Keep up the great work.

Free version will export in .iff only. Full version will support datatypes so will save in most formats.

x,y co-ords for objects are centre-based, so you could set same co-ords for each object. The current drawing system is a rough prototype only. A snap-to-grid function is planned, so a snap-to-centre could be implemented too.

Not at the moment. Just using very straight forward OS calls. (My first Amiga app, y'know)

Awesome. UML and flowcharts is something I use for virtually all software projects, be them work or leisure (is there such a thing as leisure software projects?)

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

@yoodoo2

Excellent work! Applications like this can form a niche/core market - and it looks versatile enough to appeal to several different requirements.

Does the toolbar use the new OS4 toolbar window class? i.e. is it moveable, resizable, doesn't take the focus, etc. Also, is it possible to for the user to choose to use smaller icons?

In any respect, it's an impressive looking bit of software - especially as it's your first OS4 app! Respect!

Uh, no. It's just a few buttons banged together atm.

The icons are loaded a drawer in PROGDIR: . Theoretically the user could replace them with something else, but I've never actually tried to see whether it works or not.

What resolution are you running?

@yoodoo2

On your website it says something about "2 versions for each
supported platform", does that mean we will see non-OS4-versions ? An
68k-one would be welcomed.

Does Mindspace work with floats or ints for positions ?

Do you plan to go soley into the direction of dev-tool/organizer or
will you add feature more suitable for CAD and/or artistic drawing ?

If you at one point decide to use floats (to allow zooming) and have
an interest in antialiasing I might send you my "RBuffer"-class which
wraps the Antigrain-lib into a easier to digest API.

You also mention Bezier-curves for future versions, here I could offer
some easy-2-use routines that not only draw precice curves, but also
make sure that number of calculated points stay reasonable, allow
hit-testing and the determination of what angle the curve follow at
any given point. Mind you, these are in a bit chaotic shape, but
aslong as they work...

And as an afterthough:

Doesm Mindscape support multiple project-windows, or is it one-a-time
?

Main supported platforms are OS4, Linux and Windows. A few people have asked about 68k/MOS/AROS and I would like to offer a 3.x version, but I don't have access to a useful 68k machine atm or the time to set one up. Over the next couple of months I need to bring the x86 versions up to date, so a 68k build might be available around Decemberish.

The original design spec was to build a tool for MindMapping (similar to ConceptDraw/SmartDraw etc) and adding UML/Flowcharts to that is a no brainer especially when positioning doesn't need to be that accurate.

Over the next couple of days I'm hoping to rewrite the main drawing framework to allow proper (paper) page sizes and zooming. Then I need to implement the real object model rather than the rather hacky prototype currently in place. Anti-aliasing and half-way decent accuracy are a way off into the future.

It would be nice to use a cross-platform library like AntiGrain, but I think licensing issues would prevent that.

Just one at the moment, but that will change: multiple projects and views of the same project in design. I need to see if I can come up with some shortcuts to ease the logistics of this across 3 different platforms.

@yoodoo2

The antigrain-licence in short:

"Include a copy of the licence into every archive."

No need to supply sources (even if you changed the lib itself), no
restictions when used for commercial SW.


Guess, why I use it.... ;)

Interesting. I might have to have a play.
