NAME ^

 vptk - Perl/Tk Visual resource editor (canvas edition)

SYNOPSIS ^

 vptk [-help]

   -h[elp]  - show this help

DESCRIPTION ^

  1. General considerations
  =========================

  * The project supply toolkit for Perl/Tk canvas design
  * End-user may be not familiar with Perl/Tk

  2. User interface
  =================

  * All data stored in Perl/Tk include-file form
  * Most functions accessible both from pull-down menu,
    toolbar panel and by keyboard shortcuts

  3. Restrictions
  ===============

  * No infinite scaling for graphic objects
  * One-level undo only (maybe increased?)

  4. Main features
  ================

  * Widgets stored in Perl/Tk include-file format
  * All basic canvas objects supported: 
    line, poly, curves, oval, arc, chord, rectangle
  * Object editing by using selection bars
  * Objects order supported
  * Toolbar ballons and status string
  * File setup: description, background color, output precision
  * Constraint support for uniform figures
  * Arc/Pie support
  * Cursor changes on selection/object
  * Undo for all artwork modifications (incl. drag/resize)
  * Group select (for move/duplicate/erase only) - with massive undo
  * Help & HTML documentation
  * Unlimited undo/redo
  * Post-script print
 
  5. To be implemented
  ====================

  * Point remove (in polygons)
  * Figures type conversion (oval-circle,square-rect,line-polyline,
  line-curve,polyline-polygon,polygon-splash)
  * Cursor position display (on/off)
  * Strict checks of 'points' list (pairs, minimal number, constraints)
  * Add/remove objects to/from group selection with shift+click
  * NumEntry for numeric values

  6. Known bugs
  =============

  * transformations produce wrong results when scale is not 1:1 - blocked
  * dragging uniform figures sometime produce 'non-uniform' results
