I know about saving to file via the graphic devices, and I do use the cairoSVG for example. But I'm looking for a minimum interactivity, such in the windows Gui where you resize your graphic and when you like it you click on "save as..." The problem is that you only have emf as vector option, and emf files are poorly imported by OO.
