SVG Native File Format and produces very clean XML code
Sketsa uses SVG as its native file format. SVG is an open standard language for describing two-dimensional (2D) graphics in XML developed by W3C. As being a XML grammar lets SVG benefit from the various XML tools that make it so easy to manipulate, generate, search and edit SVG files. Sketsa also produces very clean SVG XML code. It is not using any proprietary namespaces.
Tool Palette, Canvas, and Visual Design Tool
It features various tools for optimizing content creation, giving designers unsurpassed support for creativity. Its visual design tools allows designer to select, draw, and edit objects easily. It support SVG specific shape tools < rect>, < ellipse>, < line>, < polyline>, < polygon>, < text> and support additional illustration tools such as Pencil tool for freeform shape and Pen tool for curve shape. It also support transform type: rotate, skew, scale, and translate. Designer could easily and visually create or edit SVG artwork.
Designer can quickly inspect and change object properties in one centralized location. The Object Properties contains several categories: Geometry, Stroke, Fill, and Filter. In each of the category you can change the value and automatically shown in the canvas. Depending on the object selected, it allow designer to change the geometry, stroke, fill, or filter effect properties such as geometry attributes, color, stroke width, opacity, fill rule, etc
The resource editor is a centralized location of resources for the current or selected SVG document. It allows you to create Linear Gradient, Radial Gradient, and Filter. This is the place where object reuse is achieved. For example: Gradient or Filter element which could be applied to other SVG elements.
Source Editor with syntax highlighting

The integrated XML text editor allows them to view and edit SVG source code for greater control. It has built in SVG validation to ensure source code change are valid SVG Document.
