HowTo / Notes

Native alternatives for non-windows platforms
There are some good alternatives to this application that might exist for your platform. You'll find a list on the main page of this application.
Set gdiplus to native in winecfg. (There is no need to install it with winetricks, as Visio installs its own version.)
