Great drawing editor, thanks a lot!
Awesome editor with LaTeX support
I've been using Ipe for as long as I've been using Latex (since 2007). Best way to have your figures beautifully harmonized with your article or book written in Latex. The program have enough tools for you to make any figure that may be needed for scientific purpose.
Although the interface can be a bit confusing first, once you get the hang of it, the program works very well. The LaTeX integration is superb. I use Ipe for all of my drawings to be included in LaTeX files, and it is very easy to have the same font in your document and figures (just copy the preamble of your document into Ipe).
I have been using IPE since version 6. The author has improved it over time, and it produces top quality, low disk size EPS, PDF of accurate images (using snap functions), containing mathematical formulas typeset in Latex. Rarely I also use PDFtoIPE (go to downloads) to edit a PDF image that was not created by IPE. Thank you Otfried.
