    • Entirely free. Easier to use than Inkscape, better with vectors than Krita, and available on more platforms than Sketch. It's a little slow and gummy when you've made a very complicated picture, but it's honestly the best possible alternative I've found. Thank you, and thanks to Gravit. rvanarsdaleMay 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It is a simple yet powerful vector editing program suitable for vector artists, web designers, publishers, logo designers, etc. It also features non-destructing boolean operations (better pathfinder), showcase mode, multiple strokes and fills, global palettes, and more, surprisingly without any clutter.
