Tgif - Version 4.1 Patchlevel 30 Release Notes

Version 4.1 Patchlevel 30 Added Features/Bug Fixes
  1. There's a bug with measure tooltip that certain X servers would generate extra Expose events while others would not. The result is that rubber-banding does not work when measure tooltip is enabled. The simple solution here is to make the default value of Tgif.UseMeasureTooltip to be false. Also, the default values of both Tgif.MeasureTooltipXFollowMouse and MeasureTooltipYFollowMouse have been changed to false, also. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch <> for pointing out the problem.

  2. Fix a bug with exporting text objects in PS format when the text object is scales or sheared such that its width or height is 0. This bug is detectable by gs6.0. Thanks to Ingo Jankowski <> for pointing out the problem.

  3. Fix a bug with printing text objects in black&white PS file with UseGrayScale enabled. Thanks to Jurgen Rusch <> for pointing out the problem.

  4. To build "tgwb", instead of using Imakefile.tgwb, use a new and easier to maintain file called Target.tmpl.

  5. Add -usexlib commandline option to force tgif to ignore the -DUSE_XT_INITIALIZE compile option and use Xlib only. This is useful when the system resource file for tgif is not installed properly or messed up and needs to be bypassed.

  6. Add a new X default, Tgif.NoMinWinSize, so that tgif can be started without a minimum size when it is set to true (which is the default value). The problem with the previous tgif is that, by having a minimum window size, some window managers will show the wrong window size when tgif is being resized.

  7. Support the importing of JPEG files in the Import submenu of the File Menu. Add a new X default, Tgif.JpegToXpm, so that the import filter can be replaced. By default, it is set to "djpeg -gif -color 222 %s | giftopnm | ppmtoxpm".
