0001 FEATURES
0002 here are some nice Kig features i'd like to show off :)
0003 - More than 40 various nice objects: from the easiest ones ( points ),
0004   up to lines, circles, conics, cubics, and more. See the Objects
0005   menu...
0006 - Macros: the power of constructing new objects using the builtin
0007   ones. If you want to try, open macrotest.kig, then click the 
0008   button to the left of the fullscreen button, select the three
0009   corners of the triangle, then click the button again, click the
0010   circle, click the button again, type in a name.  Then check out the
0011   new type with the other circle types.  You can't really see the
0012   difference between built-in types and macro's
0013 - I've given quite some attention to making Kig as intuitive to use as
0014   possible.  It has various unique features like the nice RMB menu's,
0015   the intuitive construction mode, etc.
0016 - is a KPart: try opening macrotest.kig from konqueror, if it doesn't 
0017   work yet, open your kcontrol, then go to "File Browsing"->"File
0018   Associations", click add, group:"application", name:"x-kig", open
0019   the "embedding" tab page for the new type, click "add", find
0020   "KigPart" (if you installed Kig correctly (did you get the
0021   "--prefix" on your configure right?) , it should be there), and add
0022   it. then try opening macrotest.kig again
0023 - Kig supports various file formats...  See the filters directory.
0024   Currently Kig has read-write support for native files ( which is an
0025   imho clean xml format ) and for the older version of the Kig file
0026   format; read support for KGeo, KSeg and, partially, for Dr. Geo
0027   and Cabri files. This is an area where we plan working on...
0028 - Kig can export a document in several formats: the most common are
0029   images, and you can choose among the types supported by Qt and KDE.
0030   Moreover, the other supported formats are: XFig files, and SVG and
0031   LaTeX documents. These are useful since not all other programs
0032   support Kig files yet... ;)
0033 - Kig is very compatible with the program it was intended to replace,
0034   KGeo.  It supports all of its Object types and most of its file
0035   format... 
0036 - There is a very flexible mechanism for supporting TextLabels with
0037   variable parts..  Check out the text label wizard for more
0038   explanation... 
0039 - nice support for Locuses, inspired by KSeg's version of this.  Check
0040   the documentation and examples/locustest.kig for more info..
0041 - flexible transformation facility
