Is there any Postscript editor which have drag drop functionality.


I need to design a form in post script. Is there any editor or IDE for Postscript. I am new to Postscript. Is there any postscript editor which have drag and drop functionality(as dreamweaver in which we can drag drop things and code is written automatically by the editor)

It's usually not postscript that is edited. It's a pain. You can work in any format and then print to file (giving something.ps) or some such.

I'm not sure if you mean Encapsulated Postscript images (.eps) or generally Postscript (.ps). In the first case, the well-known Gimp should be enough; it can export to postscript, among many other formats.

If you want something more general, I would suggest LyX. LyX is actually a "what-you-see-is-what-you-mean" document processor; you can call it a front-end to LaTeX, if you wish (but it's more than that.) In any case, it is a convenient way to write documents in a friendly way (including embedded figures, tables, algorithms, etc) and can export to postscript directly. Given what you said, I believe this is what you are looking for, and it is available in basically any Linux distribution out there. The downside (if any) is that, in order to use LyX, you will have to install LaTeX as well, which is a large package.

There might be other solutions as well, such as "printing" to postscript as business_kid mentioned.

LyX is about as good as it gets!

I agree completely, and I believe original poster should look there before trying anything else (and probably won't look further.)
