File menu commands
Opens raster images of the following formats:
- PBM, PGM, PPM
Vectorization is only available for black-and-white and palette
images of up to 256 colors. Images with greater color depth (e.g., 24
bpp TrueColor) must be converted to black-and-white with the Raster|Change Palette
Save Raster As
Saves raster images. The program supports the following output
Closes current raster.
Select TWAIN32 Source
Selects TWAIN32-compatible image source (scanner).
Launches scanning image with selected scanner.
Save Vector As
Saves vector data to file. More...
The program supports the following file formats:
- AutoCAD DXF
- AutoCAD DXB
- ArcView Shapefiles
- MapInfo MID/MIF
- Windows Metafile (WMF)
- Windows Enhanced Metafile (EMF)
- ASCII XYZ
- Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG)
- Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
- Adobe Illustrator (AI)
Save Selected Vectors As
Saves only the vector objects that have been selected with the
Edit|Select Object command.
Backup to VFF
Saves vectors to internal format. "VFF" stands for "Vextractor File
Format". This format is used for storing vector data between sessions.
The VFF file name is the same as the raster file name; this allows you
to link the
raster and vector images. When you open a raster file, the program will
search for and then open the corresponding VFF file (if it exists). The
VFF file is created in the same folder with the raster file. The search
will be also limited
with the folder where the raster file resides. You can manage creation
of the VFF file via the Edit|Edit Options menu.
Open Coordinate Reference
Opens a point-of-reference file (*.grp) or World-file with reference
coefficients. The World-file's extension depends on the raster file
type; the program generates it as follows: it takes the raster
extension's first and last letter and then appends "w".
- Image file: image.tif - reference file: image.tfw
- Image file: image.bmp - reference file: image.bpw
Save Coordinate Reference As
Saves current coordinate reference as:
- File with the *.grp (Geo Reference Points) extension.
- World-files (*.tfw, *bpw, etc.)
A grp-file is a plain-text file that contains records of this type:
Raster_Y World_X World_Y
records set correspondence between an image's raster coordinates system
and the world coordinates system.
0 0 1000.0
0 1000 1000.0 2000.0
1000 0 2000.0 1000.0
