Remarkable how this list can transform a simple query into a good
discussion so often.
I converted to the OmniGraffle thing a while ago, and think it's the
best GUI app out there for it still. I'll tinker with OOo/Libre on
Dia is a PITA, IMHO, or at least my past experiences were not fun. Felt

Dia just didn't match.
Interested to look into Bjorn's solution. . . that seems to best match
the original question.
