flowframtk application FAQ

Search: Category:
Search Tips

This is the FAQ for the flowframtk application. See also the flowframtk manual and the old jpgfdraw FAQ.

General Queries

Why the name change?

FlowframTk was previously called JpgfDraw (Java pgf-code generating drawing application). The old name confused some people because the first three letters "jpg" made them think of jpeg images, which was inappropriate for a vector graphics application. There are a lot of drawing applications that can generate code for use in LaTeX documents, so I decided it would be better for the new name to reflect the application's connection with the flowfram package.

Canvas accelerators (key presses) don't work

Make sure the canvas has the focus (try clicking on the canvas or on a tool button or try using TAB to switch the focus). If the preamble panel has the focus, only the preamble accelerators will be recognized.
