Maybe you have already found your free Web-based SVG editor among the apps so far but if you haven't, here is more. DrawSVG is a fully standards-compliant SVG editor with many features.
What I really like about it is that it looks like a web application (i.e. menu on the left click to open submenu etc.) rather than the appearance of a desktop application brought to the web. With DrawSVG you can draw, modify, and render objects. This includes drawing basic shapes, Bezier curves, straight and curved text, numerous stroke and fill styles, etc. You can also export your SVG to PNG.
The functionalities are organized into three categories of tasks:
- Tasks to manage documents (40 tasks, opening, saving, etc.)
- Tasks to draw elements (35 tasks)
- Tasks to modify the selected elements (99 tasks)
Each task is associated with a user profile
(basic or expert), visit
this links (document,
editors) to explore them.
See showcase tool to review tasks in many use cases.
User documentation is also available.
Below are main features ordered by usual themes.
