If it uses source code from kivio your licence is illegal...

If it doesn't use any source code from kivio you could at least change the name of your program ...

- Zoom in/out works
- Zoom on an item works
- Layers works (back/forward)
- Copy/paste works
- No print preview
- No way to change colors to "Rational style" by default.
- Works like Visio in black and white monochrome (no color)
- Provides Flowchart only
- Easy access to coordinate tuning
- Some keyboard shortcuts, but not for every menu item.
- Close icon is weird? (looks like open)
- View menu is empty
- Arrange menu is empty
- No way to group stuff around

- Stencils are in Kivio XML + PNG icon,
good but would have been better if it was based on SVG.

- Stencils would have been better with an augmented SVG grammar,
such that editor could more easily import new rastered stencils.

- No way to create stencils from KivioMP, must be done manually?

- The stencils are way more intuitive than Visio XML format perhaps.

- No way to combine existing stencils item into a new stencil.

- Stencils are sold seperatly 5-10$/each

- Units are in "pt" by default?
- No way to change units.
- The units x/y/spacing toolbar cannot be span on two toolbar rows (Qt bug!?).

- Does not support mixing of rich text within a label.
- Font color does not work once the dialog is closed.

- Provides less features by default then:
Schematics
http://www.hypergraphics.co.uk/Schematic.shtml
or Microsoft Visio
or Rational Rose
or Rational Rose XDE

The interface is mostly a strip down version of Microsoft Visio.

The connectors functionality works like Visio not like Rational Rose.

If you are looking for a featureless and portable version of Visio
that works on most platform for less than 100$, this is it.
