I used Inkscape a couple of time… just for fun, and I was impressed. However, last week I used it for some work-related stuff.
I wrote a paper, and the core of it was a numerical analysis of a set of differential equations. The solution was plotted, but the 3D manager of the software I tried was not wonderful, and the referee complained because the axis were not label.
Here the chaos began:
- My plots were PDF files,
- Somehow, the data files and program codes were missing!!!
- After two months, I did not wanted to spend more time re-programming and running simulations.
Thus, the idea came to me, What if… I use a graphical program to insert the labels?
And I did!!!!
I tried first with GIMP, but it is a bit cumbersome… and the worst part is that I did not know hot to add LaTeX symbols. Meanwhile, Inkscape has and extension to render LaTeX formulas.
I’ll be coming back to Inkscape. It’s great, so make sure to include it in your first aids kit.
