             Editor's Review

BezierDraw is a Java program for generating geometrical designs with rotational symmetry, suitable for decorations on cards. It uses Bézier curves to do the rendering of the image, and the results can be saved in SVG format, compatible with Inkscape. It is based on an earlier version written in Visual Basic, described at: Bezier Draw website.

To create a new object, use the Select tab and click on an object button. After clicking on it, you will automatically be in Edit mode. The object may not be visible at this point, since it is underneath the mouse. Without clicking on anything, move the hand cursor to the desired location and then click again to place the object. To edit an object, hover over one of the handles until it turns red, and you get a cross-hair cursor. Then drag the handle to change the size or shape. The handles generally come in two types, rectangles to change the location and size and orientation of the object, and circles to change the internal shape. More precise control of the handles is obtained by selecting a text box on the right, and using arrow keys to change the value. You can create clones of an object using the options in the drop-down boxes in the Edit panel. To edit a different object, switch to Select mode and hover slowly over an object until it changes color. Then switch to Edit mode again. You can toggle between Select and Edit modes at any time using the RMB (right mouse button). For more precise control, you can zoom in by as much as a factor of ten using the mouse wheel. Once the drawing is complete, you can, optionally, use the Paint tab to perform a flood fill of selected areas. When done, the drawing details will be stored as a plain text file, and can also be exported to SVG.

The polyLine is a collection of nodes, or vertices, up to a maximum of 49. These are connected by straight lines. The polyLine is distinct from all the other 'stock' objects because the stock objects all have pre-determined shapes and pre-defined handles which are used to change the shape. The polyLine has no such constraints. The operations that are unique to the polyLine are:

Create a new object: Click on the polyLine button to get a 'pen' cursor. Then click multiple times on the draw panel to create new nodes. Terminate with the 'Enter' or 'Escape' key.

Edit nodes:   
Drag the red square handle to move the entire object.   
Drag a green circle to move a single node.   
With a green circle highlighted, use the keyboard arrow keys to move it more precisely.   
Select a different node either by hovering the mouse or by using the 'Page Up/Down' keys. 

There are three polyLine operations that are enabled by holding down the Ctrl key and using the left mouse button:
Rotate object: drag anywhere to rotate the object.
Delete node: click on a green circle to delete a node. You will be asked to confirm.
Insert node: hover over a line segment until it turns red. Then click to add a node. You will be asked to confirm. To insert a node between the start point and the end point, choose the option 'Closed' in the Edit Panel. Then select this new segment and click to add a point.

BezierDraw is a very simple free geometrical figure drawing program which is not required to be installed before you use. Users may carry this ready-to-use 253 KB program in their memory card while they are on move and use it whenever they want for designing purpose. The author of the program must be appreciated for their effort to create this.


Publisher's Description

Vector graphics editor for designing greeting card logos using various closed shapes based on conic sections and spirographs. Written in Java and rendered using Bezier curves.
The editor supports multiple configurable objects superimposed on each other, usually with a radial symmetry, to produce intricate and interesting designs. It uses standard shapes like hyperbolas, ellipses, polygons, cardioids, centered trochoids and vaguely teardrop-like shapes; always as closed objects so they can be filled with color.
The emphasis is on being able to select and manipulate the objects with a mouse, clone the objects easily, and produce radial symmetry about a centre point. The original objects are edited using a monochrome wireframe display which can be printed at high resolution. These objects can then be filled with color using a flood-fill tool. This can be either printed or exported to PNG or SVG format, which is Inkscape-compatible. In all cases, the shapes are rendered using Bezier curves, which are used to approximate the true shape of the geometrical objects.
