I found this very sophisticated Draw application created entirely with the Wolfram Language:

https://github.com/shdlbwr/draw

enter image description here

The documentation is available here:

http://community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/963158

When I execute Draw[] I get the following warning, although I am using Mathematica 11.0.1:

enter image description here

When I create a drawing, save it as a notebook file and execute this file nothing happens, no drawing is seen.

Do you have experience with this application? How can I save drawings e.g. in png format?

  • $\begingroup$ Like Nasser, I also don't get the message about a newer version of Mathematica. However, I've encountered it in the past and if you have Mathematica 11 it should be safe to ignore it. The saved notebook file should be opened with the "Open Draw file" button, not by double-clicking it or opening it in Mathematica in the normal way; although this would work, it will show you the expression for the graphics rather than the graphics. $\endgroup$ – C.

I just downloaded and tried it. I think this is what one is supposed to do: 1. After you make the drawing first time, like this:

Mathematica graphics

then save the notebook. But the notebook is not not meant to be the drawing in graphics format of course. To obtain the actual drawing, use the copy graphics to clipboard button

Mathematica graphics

Then paste the image from the clipboard to your any graphics program, say paint.exe and then save it as png or jpg, etc...

Mathematica graphics

The notebook you save, just contains Mathematica code for the drawing itself. Which you open using the menu:

Mathematica graphics

When I open the saved notebook, the drawing is drawn again inside Mathematica Draw app with no problem.

See if this works for you. Btw, I am using 11.0.1 and I do not get the warning you show.

    $\begingroup$ Instead of pasting it into Paint I recommend pasting it into a Mathematica notebook, then you can save it as whatever format you want. If you paste it into Paint you can only export it in rasterized formats, not SVG or PDF for example. Also you can keep working with the Graphics object in the notebook, if desired. $\endgroup$ – C.

  • $\begingroup$ @Nasser: Thank you for the explanation. $\endgroup$ – mrz Jan 9 '17 at 0:37
  • $\begingroup$ @C. E. This is a very good idea ... I did not think about this possibility, thanks. $\endgroup$ – mrz Jan 9 '17 at 0:38
