I'm using LaTeX and it happens that I need to draw some figures.
I've been unable to find a program that really suits me, so I would like to know which one(s) you use.
I'm actually using Ipe, and I find it's quite good but It seems a bit immature and it's missing a couple of handy features
like snapping an enpoint of an object, say a line, to another, so when you move the second the endpoint follows.
On the other side i like how you can snap things to almost everything (also angular snapping!) and the ability to insert latex code directly into the generated eps file.
I've also used tikz but I find unpratical to write code to generate a figure you could have done more easily and in less time with a graphical editor.
My first attempt was Dia but it's buggy and crash prone and embedding LaTeX expressions doesn't work well. A positive note is the large amount of symbols which I don't really need TBH.
This post doesn't come from a real need since I'm currently able to do what I need, also I know I could just code something I want into Ipe or write my own drawing program. I'm just looking to share opinions/suggestions
