I learned about Gravit on LQ and I think I found the perfect Inkscape replacement with it.

Wish there were some more lightweight options in this category. svg-edit looked interesting. For vector graphics editing (currently no SVG support) figurine looked somewhat lightweight and still useful. Should be possible to add SVG support to some of the older vector graphics editors that support other formats.

I would vote for xfig which is what I use for drawing things for my thesis.

xfig's also an interesting alternative. Wish there were more conversion programs (especially command line) to convert xfig's format to SVG, WPG, etc.

Been an occasional user of inkscape for a dozen years or so. Great tool, but can be a bit slow at times

I never knew the developers were Jamaican.

By the way, it appears that transfig comes with the fig2dev cli program that will convert xfig's files to (among other formats, raster and vector) emf, pdf, eps, and svg(beta) using vector graphics.

I usually export to eps or pdf+tex for use in LaTeX.

Still using Inkscape for vector editing, although when I want a "clean" SVG file I supplement it with hand-editing the SVG file in a text editor.

I don't use it very often, but Inkscape does it.

I use inkscape all the time; great tool; with (the old) jessylink extension you can do presentations straight from the browser after loading the svg-file. Thus bypassing any powerpoint like program; Inkscape gives you far more control and some svg-editing is possible via the xml-editor that comes with it. When ripping pictures from journal-pdfs (if they can't be copied directly): just open the pdf-page in inkscape and delete all unwanted stuff (apart from a reference/copyright of course).

hadn't heard of 5/9 including Pencil, which sounds interesting since it's both raster and vector... maybe could go in the other category someday if that returns, or a new category of both
