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 0042 0043 PLANNED FEATURES 0044 For a list of planned features, check out the TODO file.
