GraphPaper (Hüslipapier)

By Manderim

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Draw simple vector art with lines, arrows, boxes, symbols and text like on a graph paper and export them to the following file formats:
- ASCII art

Perfect for simple diagrams, technical drawings or code documentation. Quick and intuitive!

By the way: It works great with a drawing tablet!

You find tutorial videos and some examples on the website.

There is also a free application "GraphPaper Viewer" which allows to view, print and export GraphPaper documents (.hpd)

This application originally was called "Hüslipapier" which is swiss-german for "GraphPaper".

Unlike other applications, GraphPaper stores the contents not as vectors but rather more as a series of symbols. Nonetheless, the application is capable of easily creating vector-graphics out of these symbols. Currently, the file formats EPS, SVG and PDF are supported which are the most common technologies for scientific publications and web-graphics.

Additionally, it is possible to automatically convert the symbols to ASCII-Art and (if desired) to prepend comment symbols. This makes it easy to write documentations for your software.
