Works great on my Macbook Air Mountain Lion. I am looking for the Diagram solution on my Mac, originally, I choose Libreoffice, but it's too fat. Then I try Dia and now it's my favorite.

I use it to create diagrams and export in several formats, such as png and eps. I is simple and easy to use.

Hi, First I struggled because I thought the paper sizes did not match, but when setting all margins to zero then everything works fine. Great tool! (especially when it's free.) Note: I like to use very small symbols to make many of them fit on one page for flow charts. Small arrow bottom ends looks like a rotated square in stead of a circle but when printed to pdf they are round and look fine. Henk

Definitely daily pal on drawing simple diagram. More importantly it is in public domain.
