CINEMAS-draw is an integrated tool of CINEMAS, where users can prepare figures for publication or otherwise. CINEMAS-draw can be used as a standalone application to prepare figures from scratch, or the graphics can be exported from CINEMAS-view and CINEMAS-plot directly and further drawings can me made.
CINEMAS-draw can export graphics in jpg/png formats with up-to 20X scaling, as well as vector formats like ps/eps/pdf.
CINEMAS-draw is not just a basic ‘paint’ application, some features are:
Special character and mathematical symbols available through GUI.
Mathematical equation(characters based) can be inserted through GUI.
Mathematical equation(Latex based) can be inserted. A separate Latex installation is required.
Drawings are object based. Once drawn, elements can be moved, dragged or repositioned(powerpoint style).
Drawing elements are depth enabled. For multiple superposed elements, can be brought to front or sent to back.
Multiple drawings can be made in tab arrangement, and can be saved on consolidated CINEMAS project.
One can navigate to CINEMAS-draw using ‘Drawer’ button as shown below:
Users can start afresh from CINEMAS-draw or use button, from CINEMAS-view(including its Fermi-surface utility) or CINEMAS-plot toolbar to export graphics from there and further draw on them or use them.
Figures can be prepared by mixing several graphics from CINEMAS-view or CINEMAS-plot. One such example is shown below:
More about CINEMAS-draw¶
Drawings can be made in CINEMAS-draw by:
Starting from a blank page using the icon from CINEMAS-draw toolbar.
Exporting graphics from CINEMAS-view/Fermi-surface/CINEMAS-plot by clicking the icon from their respective toolbar.
The following is CINEMAS-draw parent window, and multiple drawings can be created in multiple tabs, and all of them can be saved in main CINEMAS project file.
From the toolbar:
Add a blank page within CINEMAS-draw by clicking icon.
A click on this button creates a new tab with a blank canvas.
Images from disk can be inserted by clicking the icon .
A shape from the list can be selected and drawn on the canvas, using the icon
Style Options provides properties console, as shown in Fig. 96.
An area on the canvas can be selected for various purposes by using the icon .
Images can be cropped to the selected area by using the icon .
Images can be saved to file with several formats like JPG/PNG/EPS/PS/PDF.
Scaling up-to 30X is available for raster(JPG/PNG) formats.
Available properties are:
Shadow properties with gradient control.
Polygon corner rounding.
Transparent drawings(remove BG).
Depth control of objects(bring to front/send to back). See Fig. 95.
