 Color Management

  • CMYK, RGB or Grayscale
  • Named colors used to store color definition

  • Selective mask for text or other objects
  • User-defined output printing films (direct tint, Red Light, etc)

 Linear objects

  • Up to 6 line components for one single vector with width, color and line style (dash, dot or plain line) options
  • Asymmetrical curve to get a varied aspect for the superior and inferior sides of the axis
  • Priority to define the overlapping order in the drawing stack
  • Automatic crossings
  • Advanced graphic options for end cap and angles
  • Filling options: hatching, pattern, symbol on curve, screening and holes

 Text objects

  • Unicode, TTF, OpenFont and ATM fonts
  • Any language (arabic, cyrillic, thaï, chinese, etc.)
  • Fill and stroke color

  • Frame option
  • Alignment
  • Option to hide the supporting curve (contour line labeling for instance)
  • Specific tool for sounding

Point symbols

  • Creation with interactive drawing, from an image or from data import (AI, PDF, or CAD/GIS data)
  • Default angle and zoom values
  • Accurate definition of the insertion point
  • Symbols replacement
