Re: Selecting appropriate widgets -- advice please

Thanks for the helpful advice.

I looked a cairo, decided it was too complicated and low-level for what
I have in mind. I’m going with DrawingArea for the main ‘canvas’. At the
moment, I’m keeping my objects in Pixmaps so I can draw text & lines on
them and copying those into a Pixbuf before drawing on the DrawArea so I
can add an alpha channel.

Next, I have to figure out how to drag & drop them. This is a slow
process at the moment as I don’t have much free time.
