XFig is a menu-driven tool that allows the user to draw and manipulate objects interactively in an X window. The resulting pictures can be saved, printed on postscript printers, or converted to a variety of other formats (e.g. to allow inclusion in LaTeX documents or web pages) using the transfig program.

This package contains the xfig program itself.

You should think about installing the transfig package to export the graphics to several common formats. You should also think about installing xfig-doc, which contains the documentation and xfig-libs, which contains several clip art libraries.

This was my favorite SVG editor back in the 1990s. It taught me the concept of an object-oriented approach.

An antiquate UI but still the best drawing tool for creating figures in latex documents. In particular I need its ability to overlay figures and text in the latex fonts

The UI is terribly antiquated, but it's still one of the best free vector plot programmes.
