    Draw for Pros (advanced users). If you're not looking to create complex work you'll be just fine with the equivalent app in Open/LibreOffice. Conversely, if you'd want more then Documents app in OO/LO has to offer, you'd go for Scribus.

    A very useful, intuitive and simple software. Many of it's tools work like other vector drawing programs, capable of high quality results. The down side is that sometimes takes time to start up or gets laggy with various actions.

    Inkscape had a long learning-curve for me, and although I made huge progress, still has many more hidden treasures for me. As I can see the art which others are able to produce with it. Ofcourse, being new at an application with many features always takes a while to fully comprehend. But with Inkscape it is fun to try to discover all of them. The big user-base provides me with ample help when needed. I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming big update. Respect to the developers. Did I forget to mention, Inkscape is 100% free-of-charge !

    Great software! Would be nice if it supported higher retina screen resolutions on OSX.

    As a long time user of vector graphics programs like AI and Macromedia's FreeHand... it is great to see an app which gives the expensive industry standards a real open source competitor! Inkscape is the real deal!

    Very good open source program. I use it often in tweaking figures for journal articles.

    Love it. It reminds me a lot of XaraX. Unfortunately, this release will not print with HP 4000 series printer and Win 7 X64.

    An absolutely fantastic piece of software. Great alternative to a lot of paid ones, and has features some of the paid ones don't. However, it does miss some features & I hate the fact I can't save things like gradients into a separate file easily for loading/using with projects. Otherwise, this is one of my favorite projects ever. 2 thumbs up, either way, and I hope it never disappears or stops being developed. Thank you for all the hard work, to everyone involved in making Inkscape, testing it, running it & fixing it & supporting it! ^_^ Also, please fix problems for people who custom theme Windows. Inkscape doesn't/hasn't played well with it. I think it's always best to use the basic interface without anything special, the way that allows Windows to "skin" things instead. I hate the idea everyone has gotten, that they should be making their interfaces with special "features" (directX maybe? something like that...) and making it impossible to both play well with the OS, and also for people like me to be happy because we aren't forced to have blaring white screens in our face or things we find ugly. I hate NOTHING more than an interface I can't customize or at the very least, make dark & compatible with my system fonts/colors (which are NEVER "default" or anything even close) & more importantly, my eyes! :)

    the interface is not very intuitive you need a step learning curve in my opinion. By the way, It's a great software

    XML editor doesn't work -- I use inkscape 0.48.4 under Windows 7. I cannot edit attributes in the xml editor. Some guys on Launchpad Bug Tracker say this is caused by GTK which doesn't work well with Windows 7. Hope developers can fix this bug which is an annoying spoiler to this near-perfect program.

    First off and most importantly it's free. A free alternative is always preferred to doing something illegal or paying actual money for something that I use for a week long project every once in a while. I've been using this since about 2010 on and off maybe every 3 or 4 months I might open it up to tinker with something non professional and its certainly a very capable program and the only open source vector program that I know about. I don't know what the "ghaststeam" reviewer was talking about but if I had to really guess I'd say that he either downloaded it from a third party site and didn't get it from a link from Sourceforge. He charges that it is mostly bloated but I don't know with what. It is a small download even with the Windows installer coming in at around 33mb. His charge that "the downloads are fake for the most part" leads me to think that he did a search for it and picked some bad links because just typing in inkscape into google gave me this site as the top result... He says that he tried to get this working.... that he has MAJOR hardware problems as a result of trying to use Inkscape. Maybe he is using 1989 hardware or something I only installed it and it worked fine with no problems installing or using and definitely no hardware problems. He also charges that Inkscape: "sucks RAM like crazy" I have a 4.5mb .svg open right now and itis using 183.3 mb. I can't compare that with any other paid program but It doesn't hurt my 16GB of memory at all and as a matter of fact my Firefox is pulling over 300mb of memory "uses too much disk space" I was quite surprised to find that Inkscape uses 151mb on my Windows 8.1 computer but that is not consequential at all.... especially considering that some of my apps on my Android phone are that size and larger. "has small malware programs" I have used this program on and off since 2010 and have never encountered any type of malware (Again possible that he downloaded from a site that makes a habit out of taking free open source applications and attaching malware and viruses to them) He says "Don't believe everything you see(ratings, fancy pics, downloads, etc.)! This program made me go the extra mile to fix the hole it made on my system. The source code is also copied(checked with Copyscape) - do not bother with this hopeless scam." This paragraph makes me believe that for some reason he is just trying to bring down a good program. It is easy for me to use for the purposes that I need. It has the features that I need for the free price The UI could use a little better design imo and I have no idea about the Support since I have never had a problem with it. Download it and use it yourself.

    Inkscape is a revolution in graphics design! - Very small footprint (i.e.: system resources, memory, and disk space) - Very small downloadable install file. - With huge library of effect filters, extensions, and panels.. - It's Free of charge. No license fee, no trial, no limited version. - It's opensource, no hard-to-fix hidden bugs, everyone can report bugs, and developers can read the 'open' source, discover the bug and fix. I love this opensource application, and use it all the time for all my professional design needs, with great results appreciated from all the work team.
