How to detect freely-drawn shape on Inkscape or GIMP?

I would like to have the functionality shown in the following video on Inkscape (preferrably) or GIMP:

The user should be able to draw a rough circle, square, rectangle, triangle etc. with a pencil tool and the application should detect its shape and turn it into a crisp shape (vectorized, if possible).

Does this feature exist in either application, either built-in or as a plug-in?


No, Inkscape does not have a tool with the ability to detect the shape of a free-drawn shape and convert it to a vector version of that shape.

There is however, a Wishlist item in the Inkscape bug tracker from 2011 asking for this feature:
