Have you tried Inkscape? It's free and seems to meet your requirements: You cannot have anchored vertices, where one vertice of the first polygon automatically follows another vertice of the second polygon on translation However, the vertices can be exactly aligned by each other with the snapping tools (see selected switches on the east toolbar) You can ...

From my experience, vectormagic does an awesome job of this, though its not free - the web based version is $7.95 a month (or you can buy tokens for single conversions while the desktop version for windows and linux is roughly 300 US dollars. If its a one off thing, you can get 2 free conversions when you sign up on their site or buy tokens as needed (You ...

Adobe illustrator is rather good at vectorizing images as well. The built-in function for this is called Image Trace and it allows you to set a bunch of parameters that control how well paths and corners are followed, how small a group of pixels has to be to be considered noise and how many colors you want to use in the vectorized version. A down-side of ...

It's not a PDF Viewer, but if you don't have Illustrator available, you might be able to use the same steps in the Inkscape vector graphics editor. Inkscape is free and open source. There's also a portable version that you could carry around on a flash drive. There are several ways that you could reasonably do this in Inkscape: InkScape has the same ...

Sketch ($79.99, on the Mac App Store) is a new Mac application for vector graphics. Because it's a native Mac application, it runs very smoothly and supports Mac-specific things like Retina displays. The fact that it's a young application has two sides: on one side, it's made with (modern) usability in mind, so it much more user friendly than most other ...

I have recently downloaded a new app for my Mac, Super Vectorizer. It does what you'd think, it turns rasters (non cuttable files) to Vectors (as in Silhouette Studio) and allows export to SVG or PDF Vector files. The really good thing about it is the simplicity. It opens fast, gives you a couple of options and then does the job. You can literally take ...

Inkscape allows to edit and export standard SVG, without Inkscape metadata. Try to Save as > Plain SVG.

The only alternative I know of to InkScape is sK1: Source: Wikipedia I've only used it for simple web design SVG editing, but it appeared to work fine. Less features than InkScape, but it does seem to import from proprietry programmes (such as CorelDRAW) a little better than InkScape. It exports to PostScript, and thus to Adobe Illustrator (5.0) rather ...

Probably the yEd will solve your dilemas. https://www.yworks.com/en/products/yfiles/yed/ If you need to play with details, Inkscape will serve well. (https://inkscape.org/en/about/) You can also import some more complicated diagram pattern from Inkscape to yEd, or export diagrams from yEd and finish them in Inkscape.

Currently the best solution for this is inkstitch. It's a rather effective inkscape addon to export embroidery. A lot of the problems with the whole autopuncher thing is the algorithm used is actually rather complex for various shapes especially with things like underlay. Inkstitch is based on a different algorithm that makes the whole autoconvert thing done ...

You could get a good starting point by using Gimp and the G'MIC plugin, take a photo of something related to your product and crop then use the G'MIC engrave filter, add your text any you are away. E.g.: using the above process can give - not bad for 4 mins.

For this sort of thing I would recommend Inkscape: Free Cross platform Vector Drawings so scales well Lots of libraries of shapes PNG, OpenDocument Drawing, DXF, sk1, PDF, EPS and PostScript export formats

I guess “After Effect” is the best choice as a software that allows you to draw vector graphics in the frame and also with a video editing. You can study about the “After Effect” from the Wikipedia.And visit the link given below for free trial version of "Adobe After Effects CC". http://www.adobe.com/in/products/aftereffects.html

Since it looks like LaTex provides support for all(most) all the OpenType font variants, including swash, you can either generate your graphics directly in LaTeX or generate the elements and import into Inkscape then position them. You may need to add some supplementary programs to be able to do the latter with: sudo apt-get install texlive pstoedit

"SVG is an open, XML-based format for vector graphics with support for interactive elements. We're big ...

The simplest way to do this is probably just to export the images from the PDF and see what kind of images you get. I have used PDFMate PDF Converter (free; make sure to uncheck installation of adware in the installer though) for this in the past. All you need to do is to make sure that "Extract all images in PDF files" is selected in the "Advanced Options"...

My recently favorited online editor draw.io does sadly not support drawing organic or chemical compounds, but I looked at the list of Online Molecule editors and searched for one provided SVG export. Maybe more than one support it, but I found one which does support SVG export (although it calls "SVG Image"), and that is the PubChem online molecule editor, ...
