uberED - Getting started - GRAPHICS
To use Scalable Vector Graphics
(SVG) some "reference points"
must be added to the page. The
small red arrows designate a fixed
location on a page.
A circle Vector Graphic uses a
single reference position as a center
point. A line requires two reference
This is an unfilled "shape" connecting a series of
6 unique points. The path is "closed" by returning
to the start point. The path is stroked using a 1px
red pen in straight lines.
The same series of 7 reference positions are
used to draw a polybezier shape stroked in a 3px
green pen and filled with yellow
The "Arrow" is not an
intrinsic SVG element.
UberED creates this
element using poly lines.
uberED - Getting started - GRAPHICS - Text caption
Text in column is composed left to right and aligned to a baseline. It cannot be rotated.
A "text caption", however may be used to display text associated with a reference point at
an angle at 0° to 360° to the natural display direction. The text anchor point may be
specified as start, middle or end aligned.
UberED getting started - FAQ
Q. My document has some blank pages how do I remove them?
A. Right click to engage the property editor and find "DOCUMENT" in the drop down box. You can
edit the number of pages here. You can set the TITLE and the PAGE SIZE defaults here too!
Q. I type a number of spaces and the editor ignores them - how do I do spacing?
A. UberED uses HTML conventions - multiple spaces are ignored. If you really need extra spacing
between words insert a NON BREAKING SPACE using the EDIT menu.
Q. Can I do special characters?
A. Yes - if the current font supports them. Remember that if you are publishing the HTML file on a
web site then you must choose a font that is likely to be supported for all users. UberED stores
the special characters in the HTML in UTF8 format. You can select a UNICODE keyboard from
the EDIT menu.
Q. Can I edit the HTML?
A. Yes - but the sub-set of HTML5 supported by UberED is very limited. Understand the XML tree
Q. I want to align a number of elements. Is there an easy way?
A. When you highlight "left" and "top" values in the property editor, a drop down box may be
selected that lets you choose values from other elements. The LEFT and RIGHT MARGINS can
also be used as alignment guides. The margins may be moved by dragging the small blue arrow
directly above the dotted blue line or editing the document properties.
Q. How do I edit an graphics element?
A. Right click on a reference point used to construct the graphic. The drop down list in the
property editor highlights the associated graphics using a point icon.
In this example, POINT34 is used by both the
circle 10 and the line 11 graphics.
