Veusz is a powerful, yet easy-to-use tool developed by Jeremy Sanders and is designed to help Mac users in producing PDF or Postscript files. The application is written in Python programming language and uses Numpy in order to manipulate data. It comes with an appealing interface and a nice GUI, that enables users to work with buttons rather than text-based commands. This feature-rich application basically allows the Mac users to illustrate the connection between two or more variables. It provides support for text files, FITS and CSV files and allows Mac users to view and edit them within the interface. As accessible as it is, in order to get the most of the tool, the users are required to have basic programming knowledge.

The tool comes with an easy-to-use menu that will allow both advanced users and beginners to quickly get themselves familiar with the product. It also provides a self-explaining tutorial in order to improve the accessibility of the tool. The customization of the tool allows the users to make changes upon the overall use of the tool, but it also provides various options regarding visual aspects and colors used. Using this tool will not burden your Mac, as it has a low resource consumption and allows you to use it simultaneous with other applications.

All taken into consideration, it is safe to say that Veusz is a handy tool for creating SVG, PDF and Postscript files; it is free and it comes with appealing interface and various customizations.
