There are other tools that enable a user to edit traditional Visio drawings; however, is it possible to edit Visio drawings used as visual overviews in DataMiner, for example using the Skyline stencils and Advanced Editing options, with these other tools?
Thank you for your help.
Most of the Visio alternatives I have seen are limited to diagram/flowchart drawing, while Visio has a lot more possibilities, and is highly extensible with new shapes. You can find a lot of stencils around the web, while some of the alternatives are limited to an included set of shapes.
Next to that, some of the alternatives only allow creating a 'static' diagram, and have poor or no support for shape data. As all of the configuration for use in DataMiner is done using shape data, such alternatives cannot be used to create or edit drawings for use in DataMiner.
