Do you need a custom shape or drawing? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
You love LibreOffice and OpenOffice, but you still use Visio to make drawings. Why? Because none of the shapes you need are easily available. Until now.

Download the file you need. Open it in LibreOffice or OpenOffice. Copy the desired shape using Ctrl+C, and paste special as Drawing Format into your own drawing. That's all! (If you need additional help, see the tutorial.)
To resize a shape, click it, hold down the Shift key, and drag one of the handles.
If you need a shape, or a shape in a different color or with more glue points, please contact me.
If you notice something good or bad about these images, let me know.
