Home User Guide Plugins Sitemap. Why is it called JaxoDraw? On which platform does it run? Does it run on Mac OS X? Where do I get help on JaxoDraw? I have a question that is not addressed here.

Where can I ask? Can I build and use JaxoDraw with Java 5? How is the JaxoDraw web site built? How do I do this and that with JaxoDraw? Is there an 'Undo' button? Latex-EPS export or preview does not work. How can I run JaxoDraw from any location I like? Development Can I contribute? I think I found a bug in JaxoDraw. What should I do? When will feature XYZ be implemented? General What is JaxoDraw? JaxoDraw is a Feynman diagram drawing tool.

JaxoDraw was initially meant to be a graphical user interface for J. Vermaseren's axodraw LaTeX package. Since it is written in Java, we prepended the J. The main feature of JaxoDraw that distinguishes it from similar programs is that it offers a complete graphical user interface GUI for drawing diagrams.

For other features, please check the Overview document. Check the Download page of the Quick Start guide for instructions. Yes it does. On MacOSX, you don't even have to install a Java environment, since it comes with the operating system, so you can start using JaxoDraw right away! This FAQ answers some frequent questions already, please read the Getting Started for a quick start guide.

The Reference section and the user guide contain some detailed and comprehensive documentation about JaxoDraw. If these resources don't help you with your problem, or if you think that you found a bug that is not yet documented, you should contact us. See our Contacts page. This is described in the Instructions section of the source download document. From version 2.

Older versions were written and maintained with Java version 1. For Java 5 there are a few minor points to notice, see this news entry. We use maven to build our web site. If you have maven installed, you can just run ' mvn site ' to build the whole site.

Yes, there is an undo and re-do functionality since version 2. The number of undo steps can be configured in the Preferences. If you want to generate output via the direct postscript export menu of JaxoDraw , you should use the postscript text button to create a text, if you want to use the LaTeX - EPS export, use LaTeX text button.

From version 1. This is a workaround that we used ourselves when working with axodraw. There may be several reasons for that. Internal latex compilation is quite a vulnerable operation since it employs the execution of external commands, which means it dependends on your system and set-up.

The first thing to check is whether you have indicated the correct paths for the latex and dvips executables in the Preferences panel you may have to give the absolute paths.

Then try to do a latex export and run latex manually. Check for any error messages. Check that latex finds the axodraw. Refer to the appendix of the User Guide for more information.

If you are running cygwin on Windows, see this separate faq. If you are not using the jar executable and would like to run JaxoDraw from a different location than the program's home directory, you have to tell the java interpreter where it can find the executable.

This is done with the -classpath or -cp option. Going into JaxoDraw Yes, please! Check this document and contact us! First check our bug list if the problem is already documented. Then you should try to identify the problem, whether it is really a JaxoDraw bug, or a limitation of some third-party software latex, axodraw, java or your operating system.

If you are not sure, you should post a question to the JaxoDraw discussion mailing list. Finally, if you are sure that you have really found a bug that is not yet documented, you can directly open a new bug report at our SourceForge bug database you need a SourceForge account for that , or post it to our mailing list.

If it is something you really sorely need, you could politely try to exert some pressure on us. You can also try to pay us. Or try to implement your feature yourself and send us some patches. In any case, you should check this document and contact us about your problem.

The most convenient way to start JaxoDraw depends on your operating system and on how you installed the program. See the installation section for generic instructions on compiling and running JaxoDraw. If you want to compile JaxoDraw yourself from sources, you have to use the ant script build. The binary distributions already contain a pre-compiled jaxodraw. Supposing you have a Java Runtime Environment installed and configured on your system, this will work on any platform. By default, all parameters starting with ' -- ' do not pop up the graphical user interface of JaxoDraw. Furthermore, if you have saved an XML file with a JaxoGraph in an earlier session, you may read in this graph directly on the command line by supplying the file name as an argument the extension of the file has to be.
