SYNOPSIS

figurine [ options ] [file...]

DESCRIPTION

figurine is an X11 program for the interactive generation of vector graphics in the Fig file format used by xfig(1) (version 3.2). The transfig(1) package is used to generate the final output format, see fig2dev(1) for details of which output formats are available. The Fig files are compatible with xfig(1) and all other programs capable of reading Fig 3.2 format files.

If Fig files are specified on the command line, they are opened in figurine. Non-existent files on the command line will be opened as new Fig files.

OPTIONS

The options below can be specified as shown on the command line, and are also settable as X resources (see X(1) for a description of how to set X resources).
-display display
  Set the X display to be used
-geometry geom
  Set the geometry of the tool window e.g. -geom 400x300
-tlcolor color
  Set the light color used in the toolkit widgets.
-background color
  Set the background color used in the toolkit widgets.
-brcolor color
  Set the dark color used in the toolkit widgets.
-handlecolor color
  Set the color used for the object handles.
-font font
  Set the font used in the toolkit.
-rulerfont font
  Set the font used in the document rulers.
-screenppi ppi
  Set the screen pixels-per-inch value. This is often reported inaccurately by the X server. Experiment with this value until a screen inch is correct (use a ruler !). On my monitor, 97 is an accurate value at 1024x768.
-undolevels val
  Set the number of undo levels. The default is nine; more means more flexibility, but higher memory usage. A value of 0 disables undo/redo.
-notooltips
  Disable the floating tool tips.
-nocompoundoutlines
  Disable the dashed boxes that surround compound objects. This has no effect on the actual file contents.
-guidelines
  Enable cross-guidelines that follow the cursor in the document window.
--version
  Display the version number on the terminal and quit immediately.

USAGE

The interface has been designed to be considerably more flexible and intuitive than xfig(1). Switch between the types of objects you can draw using the main tool window icons (or use the right mouse button on a document window). The first icon, the Edit tool, is where existing objects in a document are resized, rotated, and changed. For further details, refer to the HTML documentation.

ENVIRONMENT

figurine recognises the following environment variables :
FIGURINEDIR
  The directory containing the HTML documentation, e.g. /usr/share/figurine
BROWSER
  The browser program preferred by the user. This is used to view the HTML documentation when the menu option Help->Contents has been selected. The value must refer to an X11 program, but if you want you could do BROWSER="xterm -e lynx" or similar.

FILES

/usr/local/share/figurine/index.html
  HTML documentation describing the use of figurine.

This man page is current for figurine-1.0.5.
