Personally, I use Stone Create, because I can line things up visually

document, for future modifications; just select the components of your 
page that you want for the final figure, then drag the PDF out of 
Create's image well (this description won't make sense unless you try

produced, so you can put the PDF you just exported back into Create and 
move the equation around, add more labels, or whatever.
