fig2vect – Yet another Fig to vector converter

This pack­age is now dis­tributed as part of the dk­tools bun­dle.

The fig2vect pro­gram con­verts fig­ures from jFig, XFig and WinFig to , EPS, PDF, TeX and SVG.

Pro­gram high­lights:

  • De­signed for use with LaTeX/pdfLaTeX. Han­dling of spe­cial text is left up to LaTeX, for non-spe­cial text you can choose whether or not to use LaTeX.

For text han­dled by LaTeX you have three choices:

  • Use the fonts ex­actly as spec­i­fied in the Fig file.
  • Con­vert to use fonts in the same fea­tures (serif/sans-serif/monospaced, nor­mal/bold, up­right/italic), which al­lows use of the same font fam­i­lies in the graph­ics as in the doc­u­ment where the graph­ics is in­cluded.
  • Write no font se­lec­tion com­mands (text con­tains com­mands it­self if nec­es­sary).

In op­er­a­tion:

  • X-splines are ap­prox­i­mated by a se­quence of Bezier spline seg­ments.
  • Fill pat­terns are drawn by vec­tor graph­ics op­er­a­tions.
  • Image width and height are found by in­spect­ing graph­ics el­e­ments (ex­cept texts), the pa­per for­mat name is not used here.
