Drawit 3 6 update
Pieter Omvlee has released the latest version if his vector-drawing application, Drawit 3.6. This latest version is claimed to offer significant increases in speed and decreases in memory usage. Bitmap layers can now be exported for editing in other applications. Drawit includes a vector tool for creation and editing, along with a number of template shapes including shapes, circles, stars, rounded rectangles, polygons, and more.
ColorImage filters are fully supported, in addition others such as Shadow and Stroke. Users can add an unlimited number of filters to each layer while still retaining the ability to change individual vector points. Groups of layers can be moved and styled as an individual unit or share the same mask.
The Position function draws a visual overlay on the document indicating the relative position of layers and the distances between them. The program supports vector Boolean operations, text to vector conversion, and several export formats. Drawit 3.6 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and is available from the company for $40.
