AxPoint bits

[ #3344 ]

Spent the last few days (after my mamoth refactoring bit, which doesn't seem to be working 100% - no shock there) working on AxPoint. A couple of people had asked me if there was a way to do tables and some rudimentary graphics. I had to say no.

So I added tables and graphics (using the SVG syntax). Now I just need to add a bit of CSS parsing wizardry to the graphics so you can get a little bit more than just thin black lines. AxPoint is turning into quite the little presentation tool!

  • I recently put a Debian net install presentation together for the local Linux users group and Axpoint saved the day! It was simple and the end result looked great! I had them put up a page explaining how I used it. You can find it here [flux.org]

    • Nice looking presentation!

      I'm also seriously thinking about doing some form of <notes> tag, so you can add notes to the slides, then provide a notes output method that, like powerpoint, will do the slides with the notes underneath on A4 paper. But that's a fair bit of work because all the sizes are hard coded at the moment, so I'd need to rework it a bit, I think. That is unless the slides would fit verbatim on A4... Hmm...
