Libreoffice Visio


LibreOffice already imported Microsoft Word forms reasonably well - much had improved over the years - and from LibreOffice 6.3 on it is also possible to add Word form controls. After setting the options Tools Options Writer Compatibility Reorganize Forms menu to have it MS compatible, the Forms menu in Writer changes. LibreOffice Draw module is one of the best open source alternatives to Microsoft Visio. With the help of it, you can either choose to make a quick sketch of an idea or a complex professional floor plan for presentation.

I love to make new diagrams for networking designs. This task occupies a lot of my time on my job working as a networking engineer.

In past I’ve used Microsoft Visio for that kind of tasks, but as I’ve made a switchover to Ubuntu as my primary Operating System, I had to find an alternative drawing program for making the diagrams. The best solution I’ve found was OpenOffice Draw (now is called LibreOffice Draw). I’ve continued to use Cisco network Topology icons – they can be easily used in LibreOffice – you just have to do copy/paste from folder where they are stored. I prefer to use the small blue colored ones – you can download them in JPEG format directly from the following link:

They really look clean and are very small in size so a lot of them can fit on one network diagram:

So here is an example of a networking diagram I made with LibreOffice Draw (Virtual Private Dial Up Network with L2TP used for tunneling PPPoE sessions between Network Service Provider and Local ISP which owns the local loop – you can read more on this matter on Cisco’s site here:

I've created a series of Visio 2003 flowcharts, which management wants to be able to edit and return to me. However, no one has Visio installed, and they've asked me to find a way for them to open the Visio file, make changes, and send it back to me. Is that possible in LibreOffice?
