NAME

       flipbook - multi-frame editor and viewer derived from drawtool

SYNOPSIS

       flipbook [-bookgeom] [-slideshow sec] ['X-params'] [file]

DESCRIPTION

       flipbook  is  a  program  derived  from  idraw/drawtool  that supports multi-frame graphic
       display.  The zeroth frame is always visible as the background frame, and in front  of  it
       is displayed the current frame (1 thru n).

       The Frame menu controls the frame display mechanism.  The operations are:

       Menu Item       Keyboard        Description
       -------------- --------  -----------
       Move Forward   ^F              move forward one frame
       Move Backward  ^B              move backward one frame
       Goto First Frame                move to the first frame
       Goto Last Frame                 move to the last frame
       New Forward      F              create new frame in front of the current
                                       frame and make it the current frame
       New Backward     B              create new frame in back of the current
                                       frame and make it the current frame
       Copy Forward     X              copy current frame in front of itself
       Copy Backward    Y              copy current frame in back of itself
       Delete           D              delete current frame (the zeroth frame
                                       can never be deleted)

       By  default  a  flipbook  document  is  positioned  on the first frame when opened (if one
       exists).  "Move Backward" can be used to move to the background frame when  positioned  on
       the first frame.  "Move Forward" then returns to the first frame.

       The  New command creates a document with only a background frame.  The "New After" command
       can then be used to initialize the first frame  ("New  Before"  does  not  work  when  the
       current frame is the background frame).

       flipbook  save/restores  its  documents  with  a document format specific to flipbook (and
       possibly programs derived from flipbook).  Idraw format drawings can be imported  via  the
       "Import  Graphic"  command  (under  the  File  menu).   The  rest  of the flexibile import
       mechanism of drawtool is supported as well.  "Export Graphic" exports  currently  selected
       graphics in idraw or drawtool format.  The Print command (under the File menu) generates a
       multi-page Postscript document, one page per frame except for the zeroth  frame  which  is
       always the background.

OPTIONS

       "-bookgeom"  brings  up the flipbook in landscape mode, with a 906 by 700 pixel page size.
       Useful for viewing illustrated books prepared in this mode.

       "-slideshow sec" continuously plays the contents of  a  flipbook  file  with  "sec"  delay
       between frames (currently only available when built with ACE).

       Also see "-help" for more options, and the comdraw, drawtool, and idraw man pages.
