I'm working with LibreOffice Draw as an alternative to Visio.

One of the things I'd like to do is to setup custom galleries with shapes that I've created.

On my personal workstation this is easy enough as I have PNGs and I've pulled them in.

My question is this:

Can I somehow export my personal galleries and share them with friends/colleagues so that they have the ability to use the same gallery instead of creating the gallery from scratch again?

If this is possible, how do I do it?

Also, is there something that will allow me to add things like connectors to custom images in my custom gallery?

When having the same quest as you I found this website. It contains a couple of custom Open Office shapes. Each of these come in the form of an .odg file.

To create a custom 'library' you open Draw, import some images from file, add some glue points to them and save as a .odg.

To use these libraries one should open the library in one instance of Draw and create a drawing in another instance. You can copy and paste these shapes to use them.
