I would like to ask if and what experience exists with SVG editors (drawing tools) other than Inkscape for creating Fritzing parts. Are there any others in use that are good for this specific task?
The background for this question is that I started with Inkscape (1.0) when creating my first part and … it was horrible. Which is a pity, because I know Inkscape from years ago, and I had already used it on a Mac and really liked it. Fantastic tool. But running the newest version on my Mac was a shock: it is reaaaallly slow and laggy. To the point of unbearable.
Had I not found the tip on the interwebs to configure Inkscape to start in low resolution, I would have probably given up. Now it is okay to work with.
That is why I decided to push through and not spend time on trying out other options, e.g. Affinity Designer. But I do wonder if other people have found other SVG programs that work well for the specific task of creating SVGs for Fritzing parts. The one thing I think is very valuable in Inkscape for this, is the XML editor. Something not present in Designer, which is why I did not go and try it out.
I know that people are using Illustrator, so that seems to be one way to go. (But to be honest, the price has become a bit steep for creating a Fritzing part now and then).
