Simple Signal Flow with OpenOffice Draw

Check out the video to see how I use OpenOffice draw:

*check the licensing requirements of OpenOffice draw, as your usage might require a paid version.

What is your favorite drawing tool, and is there a single feature that makes it more useful to you?

    The program I use for all my drawing needs is AV Snap. It is a free program developed for the AV industry but can be used for any drawing application.

    ProAV School should do a training video for this program because it is very powerful and free. Or maybe you could talk to the developer to see what resources are available.
