	Hi Rene, hi John! From Omnigraffle you can easily create vector based 
graphics and export them to pdf (along with a myriad of other formats), 
so this could be exactly the application you're looking for, tough it's 
not free. A couple of months ago I started a similar thread on this 
list, as I was looking for a way to create logical flow charts and 
include them in my LaTeX docs. Out of all the suggestions I received, 
Omnigraffle was by far the best one for that goal, along with being a 
very well thought graphics program that's gonna get you safe to your 
dead line whenever Photoshop and Illustrator are either out of reach or 
plain overkill. I've learned to appreciate Omnigraffle's long list of 
useful features and wonders, so I would easily recommend it!

	Hope that helps! Regards,...
