The text colour can be one of the following:
- No colour. A
transparent text area is not painted on the
canvas, but it does have a bounding box. When
exporting to a LaTeX document, transparent
text areas have their text set in the argument of
- A single colour. This can
be specified as RGB (red green blue),
CMYK (cyan magenta yellow black),
HSB (hue saturation brightness) or
grey scale. The alpha value changes the opacity
(maximum value is solid, zero is completely transparent, and a
value in between produces a semi-transparent effect.
- A two-tone
gradient is used for the outline. This requires
a start colourand an end colour. The shading may be linear or
radial: if linear, you need to specify a direction using one of the
direction buttons; if radial, you need to specify the starting
location using one of the buttons provided.
FlowframTk can't implement paint shadings for text when using one of the LaTeX-related export functions. You can choose how FlowframTk should treat text paint shadings via the TeX Configuration Settings.
Note that the colours you see on the screen may not exactly match colours produced by your printer due to the non-invertible mapping between colour spaces.
The colours are specified as integer values between 0 and 100, or between 0 and 359 in the case of hue. You can type in the number in the appropriate box, or use the slider bars, or you can click on one of the predefined colour buttons.
