Jpgfdraw is a vector graphics application written in Java, with a graphical user interface (GUI). In order to run the application you must have the Java2 Platform, Standard Edition Runtime Environment (JRE) installed (at least version 1.5). Jpgfdraw is based in part on Acorn's !Draw application, but was tailored specifically to produce files containing pgfpicture environments for use with Till Tantau's pgf LaTeX package. In Jpgfdraw, you can:
- Construct shapes using
line, move and cubic Bézier segments.
- Edit paths by modifying
the defining control points.
- Incorporate text and
bitmap images (for annotating
and background effects).
- Text and paths can be combined
to form a text along path effect.
- Extract the parameters for TeX's
and for the
defined in Donald Arseneau's shapepar package.
- Construct frames for use with
the flowfram package.
- Pictures can be saved as or
loaded from Jpgfdraw's native
JDR (binary) or AJR (ascii)
- Pictures can be
- a LaTeX file containing
a pgfpicture environment for inclusion in a LaTeX document;
- a single-paged LaTeX document containing the image;
- a LaTeX2e package based on the flowfram package;
- an Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) file;
- a PNG file;
- a scalable vector graphics (SVG) file.
- a LaTeX file containing a pgfpicture environment for inclusion in a LaTeX document;
