Although FrameMaker drawing tools are primitive, keep in mind that if your documents are ever going to be translated, the Translator will need to access the Flow chart labels and translate them too. If the flow chart is done all in Frame, it's easier for the Translator. If it's in Visio, the Translator has to have a copy of Visio, translate the flow chart, create the .png and reimport it. They will charge you extra money for that.
Just something to keep in mind. I switched from using Illustrator for callouts to using Frame, for that specific reason.

They are poorly drawn and pretty much crap. I re-drew them many years ago. Some people on the list have tried them out. If anyone found them useful, maybe they will comment. If you're interested I'll try to find them. I've not used them in quite some time. - web At 11:16 AM -0700 9/13/06, Beth Prince wrote: >Hi, all, >I need to make up some flowcharts to import into frame.
