[reportlab-users] Visual Editor.

This would work well for importing static layouts and page backgrounds. 

I am trying to get Sketch/Skencil working on Windows, as it can both draw, and import a wide variety of formats. The problem to date was that it was Unix only, but now it's PYGTK based and allegedly works. We must support Windows users (like me). 

But it does not help when trying to design a data-aware, flowing document like a database report. For that you need a totally different concept - more lilke an IDE with many views. 

What is the relative need for both?

Wouldn't maybe a more quick approach like a simple converter for existing 
formats be a useful alternative? For example a script that converts a subset 
of SVG to reportlab commands. If it would extract just the basic elements 
like lines, curves and so on, you could draw your graphics with standard 
software like Freehand.

I am also very interested but I have a time problem and also my programming 
skills are not too famous...
