FlowframTk – Vector graphics application with support for flowfram.sty

FlowframTk is a graph­ics ap­pli­ca­tion writ­ten in Java de­signed for use with flowfram and pgf, 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 ’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 doc­u­ments with the pgf pack­age;
  • a class or pack­age that loads the flowfram pack­age;
  • a PostScript file;
  • a PDF file;
  • a PNG im­age file; or
  • an SVG im­age file.

Al­ter­na­tive text can be spec­i­fied to use when ex­port­ing to a file (e.g. if the text con­tains sym­bols or if it should be set in maths mode).

Map­pings can be used to spec­ify what font dec­la­ra­tions should be used when ex­port­ing to a file.

To in­stall, down­load and run the in­staller ap­pli­ca­tion flowframtk- ver­sion -in­staller.jar (where ver­sion is the ver­sion num­ber).

This ap­pli­ca­tion re­places the now ob­so­lete JpgfDraw.
