Hi Christopher,

welcome on this list! And thanks a lot for your idea ...

Yes. I think it might be useful.

like this here:

It's don't think that it is difficult to achieve. I would create the
templates if someone else implements them

Mmh, I think it would be just great to have this in LibreOffice, but
then it'll require some more work (I fear, a lot of work!). The idea of
SmartArt is to provide:
      * make it easy to apply changes afterwards 
      * provide easy-to-use theming capabilities

For example: If you work on an organization chart, then then it is easy
to add another item "in the middle" and Microsoft Office will take care
to move all the other dependent items. Same for all the other structural
elements you've presented in the picture linked above. Consequently, the
"Smart" in "SmartArt" refers to their programmability - it is not just
graphics (see also [1]).

I don't know whether/how to ask the developers for that. It's a huge
task ... It seems that we are not even able to provide this via the
Gallery, since the gallery doesn't support ODGs. Sigh.

But, what we currently miss, are high quality templates - some guys here
started to create some. Maybe they need some help. And this would be as
important as having SmartArt capabilities.

What do the others think?
