Tried to do a stupid simple thing on a computer: make book shelf dividers for my kid. Just big letters one per line, with dotted cut lines, a few per page. Tried LibreOffice Writer, LibreOffice Draw and just couldn't do it. It must be simple, and I used to do things like that 20 years ago just fine (probably with MS Office or Visio or whatever).

Software in the whole is largely a failure with very few exceptions where people actually still care.

@isagalaev I used to use Draw to print CD covers back in the day, wasn't that hard. Did you try Inkscape?


@angdraug no, I've finally subdued Draw. By manually placing all 26 letters and lines between them. Grid snapping even worked more than half the time…
