WinFIG 4.9 Ranking & Summary
WinFIG 4.9 description
WinFIG 4.9 offers users an effective and beneficial vector graphics editor application. The file format and rendering are as close to Xfig as possible, but the program takes advantage of Windows features like clipboard, printer preview, multiple documents etc.
It is based on earlier Amiga program called AmiFIG. The intention is not just to copy or clone Xfig. He tried to improve the user interface, so experienced Xfig users probably realize that the look&feel is not identical and some things work differently. =
Just like XFig, WinFIG has become quite popular among academic users for it's ability to use LaTeX syntax for texts as well as exporting to PSTricks, embedding PostScript or PDF into LaTeX or producing pure LaTeX output. So there is quite a range of options to fit WinFIG into a LaTeX environment, but of course it's not limited to that.
- Compose drawings using ellipses, circles, polygons, splines, arcs, arrows, images, text objects
- Draw solid, dashed or dotted lines with miter, round or beveled joins
- Use colors and patterns
- Manipulate your drawings by moving, stretching, flipping, aligning
- Create compound objects
- Arrange objects in different layers to control the order in which they overlap
- Use grid and magnet and constraints for geometry (e.g. to create LaTeX compatible lines only)
- Export to box, CGM, EMF, epic, ge, GIF, IBMGL, dxf, JPEG, LaTeX, map, MetaFont, MetaPost, PCX, PDF, pic, pictex, PNG, (Encapsulated)PostScript, ppm, pstex, PSTricks, shape, sld, SVG, tk and others
- Smart links to support diagram techniques, i.e. for creating connections between nodes.
- He added one more snapping mode in addition to snapping to grid. Now you can also snap to vertices. Both modes can be combined. There may be even more modes in the future.
- The canvas color can be changed.
- Bug fixes:
- The tip of an arrow extended a little bit over the end point of the line. The effect was increasing with the zoom factor.
- When magnet was on, the selection frame would be invisibly aligned to the grid before selecting objects.Objects could therefore be outside the frame when the frame was very close to them.
- Windows 2K / XP / Vista / 7 / 7 x64
