LaTeXDraw

LaTeXDraw

LaTeXDraw is an open source graphical drawing editor for LaTeX, a document preparation system and document markup language for high-quality typesetting. LaTeX is often used for technical or scientific documentation, particularly because it generates well formatted papers with beautifully crafted formuale, but the system can be used for any form of publishing.

LaTeXDraw uses the graphical LaTeX language PSTricks for producing either:

  • PSTricks code that can be integrated into LaTeX documents.
  • PS/PDF pictures that can be included into LaTeX documents without any compilation constraint.

LaTeXDraw has the usual drawing tools (lines, rectangles, circles, Bezier curves) and can resize, rotate, move and join objects using vector transformations. LaTeXDraw uses SVG as its file format and figures.
