the problem with what you suggest, is that the charts wont be able to be changed dynamically by the user embedding a static image, doesnt provide any ability to update/correct/alter the content of the chart, from within the wiki, which is what wikis are for

is there anything i can do now, to be able to design/create and edit flowcharts inside zim ?

Probably I should add a config option in zim to specify export commands for various file types. E.g. it would specify the command to convert a .dia file to an image file. Then embedding a .dia file in zim should be transparent: show as an image in zim, but edit the .dia file itself when clicked.

When implemented generic, could work for any application that has option for commandline export to some image format.

        Well, it would be really easy to write a plugin that opens
        the image with application that has created it. Very similar
        to what we do with the equation editor. Equations are also
        images, but when you edit them, the related latex file is opened.


    P.S. if you use an editor that saves SVG images, e.g. Inkscape
    (which is not optimized for flowcharts, but can do them as well),
    you can simply insert the images and use the "Open With" menu
    item to open again with the editor of choice.

    Quick search on freecode.com <http://freecode.com> doesn't show
    up much tools for this. Maybe there is a niche for a simple SVG
    editor that is optimized for flowcharts and similar diagrams ?
