flowframtk application FAQ

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.
