is an interactive vector drawing program. It is
comparable to the commercial CorelDraw. Sketch supports
drawing primitives like rectangles, ellipses, bezier curves, bitmap
and Encapsulated PostScript images, and text. Objects can be rotated,
scaled, and sheared. Primitives can have fill and line properties. A
number of special effects like blend groups, text to bezier and text
along a path are provided. Sketch supports an unlimited undo
history. Import of xfig, ai, wmf,
cmx and svg files. Exports to pdf,
eps, ai and svg. Sketch is written in
Python with a Tkinter GUI. User scripts can be written in Python.
Sketch provides considerable functionality as an
alternative to dia. It does not use the GTK+ toolkit
and so does not conform to the Gnome look and feel.
