It might work well to use the latest executables you can get for DRAWTREE
from our ftp site on a Mac (so as to avoid some bugs) and then select the 
MacDraw PICT output option.  Then use MacDraw on the result and draw in the
bar yourself.

The same can be done with PC Paintbrush on DOS or Windows, and with the
Xfig draw program on Unix.
