I think that this is something for a new thread.

As I often have in the past, I would like to mention that I very  
happy with Intaglio:

1. I suffered for many years with Canvas and Intaglio does painlessly  
all that Canvas did or didn't do.

2. Moreover, what I like very much from the point of view of  
including figures in LaTeX is that once I have made a Graphic in  
Intaglio and Saved As … Graphic.Intaglio, I can Save A Copy As …  
cropped pdf in another folder which Intaglio remembers.

I can then include Graphic.pdf in LaTeX and edit  Graphic.Intaglio  
which I just have to Save A Copy As … and the LaTeX file is updated.

3. Intaglio can also save in SVG which, in addition to be more  
conform to the GNU FreeDocLic, has the additional advantage that it  
can be read by, say, subethaedit and the resulting code can then be  
included directly in the LaTeX code instead of a \includegraphics  
line. Then, when you typeset, the pdf is created on the fly and  
automatically inserted.

4. Support is superlative. Some of the above features were created  
once I was able to make a case for them.
