TpX 1.4 is on CTAN TpX is a lightweight, easy-to-use graph­i­cal ed­i­tor for Win­dows plat­form for cre­ation of draw­ings and in­clu­sion them into LaTeX files in pub­li­ca­tion-ready form. It can also be used as a stand-alone ed­i­tor for vec­tor graph­ics. The out­put is a file (with ex­ten­sion .TpX) con­tain­ing the draw­ing as LaTeX code or as an \in­clude­graph­ics link to an ex­ter­nal file cre­ated by the pro­gram. User can choose be­tween sev­eral out­put for­mats. TpX saves its own data in TeX file com­ments so that the draw­ing could be loaded into TpX and edited again. This in­ter­nal TpX for­mat is based on XML and could be un­der­stood and edited eas­ily. TpX can im­port EMF/WMF pic­tures cre­ated by other Win­dows ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing many ap­pli­ca­tions pro­duc­ing sci­en­tific graphs. It also can im­port sim­ple SVG pic­tures. In most cases the re­sult is nice, though some­times im­ported pic­ture needs some man­ual edit­ing. So TpX can be used as a EMF-to-any and SVG-to-any con­verter.
