How can we produce this picture https://snipboard.io/oVp3Ic.jpg, with added vertex names (e.g. A,B,C etc.) in the simplest way possible? Eventually I'll need to put this picture into a LaTeX file that'll be transformed into PDF.

Thank you!

  • You could use almost any vector image editor, such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Inkscape (which is free). – Billy Kerr Mar 22 at 15:32
  • You could also use practically any raster editor - Gimp, Photoshop, PaintShop Pro - But vector, as Billy suggests, would probably be better due to the resolution independence. – Scott Mar 22 at 17:39
  • I would draw it with a pen, ruler and compass on paper. But what's the actual problem? Should the image be written as text in some graphics definition language that you do not read & speak well enough? Or is getting angles and lengths (especially pieces x and 7cm) right too difficult? Or what? Do you search a general elementary geometry image production toolset and showed to us only a random example which is not at all your actual problem? You'll get voted out if you do not include some details which show the actual problem. – user287001 Mar 23 at 9:33
  • Why dont you use tikz? Then you can edit it iside your TeX markup. – joojaa Mar 23 at 19:39

If you know basics of Illustrator, you can try like this:

  1. For the shapes - Draw your shape and place circles/squares to represent angles and select all and use Pathfinder tool to outline them and then you can select and remove unnecessary segments using Direct Selection Tool.

  1. For text part
