"report problems when using international characters"
As an engineer, I think the layer property is attractive even if I haven't use the function.
the user's experiences after installation need to be enhanced.
The first look of the software has rule on both x and y direction.
I wonder the unit of the rules I image a chart within A4 size. I need a boundary for my layout.
I installed it on my desktop(vista home premium sp2 in Japanese). The first try with Japanese characters finally works after a hard experience to change the IME from Dia's menu and font at chart's properties. Actually I did not know where is the point to make it to accept Japanese characters.
When I made another new diagram, it refused to accept Japanese any more. Sure I tried hard to repeat my experience on the first diagram.
