FlowframTk Home page: https://www.dickimaw-books.com/software/flowframtk/ Nicola L.C. Talbot (https://www.dickimaw-books.com/) ABOUT FLOWFRAMTK ================ FlowframTk is a graphics application written in Java designed for use with flowfram.sty and pgf.sty but can also be used to create standalone image files. You can use FlowframTk to: * Construct frames for use with the flowfram package. * Construct shapes using lines, moves and cubic Bezier segments. * Edit shapes by changing the defining control points. * Add symmetry to shapes. * Convert shapes into patterns (rotational, scaled, spiral) * Incorporate text and bitmap images (for annotation and background effects). * Display text along a shape. * Extract the parameters for TeX's \parshape command and for \shapepar (defined in the shapepar package). * Pictures can be saved in FlowframTk's native binary format (JDR) or native ascii format (AJR) or can be exported as: - a pgfpicture environment for use in LaTeX documents with the pgf package - a LaTeX class or package that loads the flowfram package - a postscript file - a PDF file - a PNG image file - SVG image file * Alternative text can be specified to use when exporting to a LaTeX file (e.g. if the text contains symbols or if it should be set in maths mode). * Mappings can be used to specify what LaTeX font declarations should be used when exporting to a LaTeX file. This application replaces the now obsolete JpgfDraw. ABOUT JDRVIEW ============= Jdrview is a Java application for viewing JDR or AJR files. It is primarily intended as a convenient way of viewing images created when developing applications that create JDR or AJR files. (The JDR and AJR formats are documented in flowframtk-*.pdf) ABOUT JDRUTILS ============== Jdrutils is a suite of command line applications for converting to or from AJR or JDR files. This consists of: ajr2jdr : AJR to JDR converter ajr2tex : AJR to TeX converter (creates pgfpicture environment) eps2jdr : EPS to JDR converter (still experimental) jdr2ajr : JDR to AJR converter jdr2eps : JDR to EPS converter jdr2png : JDR to PNG converter jdr2svg : JDR to SVG converter jdr2tex : JDR to TeX converter (creates pgfpicture environment) There currently isn't a command line tool to convert AJR/JDR files to a LaTeX package based on the flowfram package. This can only be done via FlowframTk's export tool. See the documentation for further details. REQUIREMENTS: ============ The J2SE Runtime environment version 8 (JRE 8). This can be downloaded from: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/ INSTALLATION: ============= Download and run the jar installer flowframtk-xx-installer.jar where xx is the version number. EXAMPLE FILES: ============= Example files are contained in the examples directory. Some of the examples contain links to bitmaps. If links are stored as absolute paths, they will not be found in which case you will be prompted for a new location. You can either select the png file from its new location, or you can discard the link. LICENCE: ======= This material is subject to the GNU General Public License. See the file LICENSE for details.
