Although I have no idea what the above project is about, I can think of
three off-hand :
- making graphical representations of databases/schemas with connectors
between text fields ;
- filling in imported PDF forms ;
- filling in certificates, diplomas, other graphics oriented documents,
etc from a datasource for which Writer is unsuitable.
My business use-case would be the PDF form filling from a database, for
example. At present, I can import a PDF form into Draw which is supplied
to me by an administration, and which contains a particular layout
containing editable fields and images. At present, I can either only
fill those fields manually from within my PDF reader and then print, or
import the form into Draw and copy/paste from my database, which is
particularly irksome and painstaking. Being able to merge data directly
including images (e.g. my signature) would save me a great deal of time.
