\section{Introduction}
insilmaril@28
    45
\subsection{What is a \vym map?}
insilmaril@28
    46
A \vym map (in short words {\em map}) is a tree like structure:
insilmaril@28
    47
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
    48
	\includegraphics[width=12cm]{example1.png}
insilmaril@28
    49
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
    50
Such maps can be drawn by hand on paper or a flip chart and help to
insilmaril@28
    51
structure your thoughs. While a tree like structure like above can be
insilmaril@28
    52
drawn by hand or any drawing software \vym offers
insilmaril@28
    53
much more features to work with such maps. \vym is not another drawing
insilmaril@28
    54
software, but a tool to store and modify information in an intuitive
insilmaril@28
    55
way. For example you can reorder parts of the map by pressing a key or
insilmaril@28
    56
add various information like a complete email by a simple mouse click.
insilmaril@28
    57
insilmaril@28
    58
\subsection{Why should I use maps? Time, Space and your Brain.}
insilmaril@28
    59
\subsubsection*{Space}
insilmaril@28
    60
A map can concentrate a very complex content on little space e.g. a
insilmaril@28
    61
piece of paper. It helps to use both sides of your brain: the logical
insilmaril@28
    62
side and also your creative side (e.g. by using pictures, colors and
insilmaril@28
    63
keywords in a map, so called {\em anchors}).  It is a technique to
insilmaril@28
    64
organize the way you think: It can help you by developing, sorting and
insilmaril@28
    65
memorizing your thoughts. 
insilmaril@28
    66
insilmaril@28
    67
\subsubsection*{Time}
insilmaril@28
    68
Because you just use keywords and drawings, it is much faster than good
insilmaril@28
    69
old fashioned notes. Your brain memorizes things by associating them to
insilmaril@28
    70
other things -- a map makes use of those connections and stimulates
insilmaril@28
    71
new asccociations. 
insilmaril@28
    72
insilmaril@28
    73
\subsubsection*{Your Brain}
insilmaril@28
    74
In 1960 the Prof. {\sc Roger Sperry} discovered that both hemispheres
insilmaril@28
    75
of the human brain have different tasks (of course both of them
insilmaril@28
    76
basically {\em can} do the same): The left side is specialised in 
insilmaril@28
    77
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
    78
   \item verbal speech and writing 
insilmaril@28
    79
   \item numbers
insilmaril@28
    80
   \item logical thinking
insilmaril@28
    81
   \item analyzing and details
insilmaril@28
    82
   \item science
insilmaril@28
    83
   \item linear thinking
insilmaril@28
    84
   \item concept of time
insilmaril@28
    85
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
    86
while the right side of the human brain is specialised in
insilmaril@28
    87
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
    88
    \item body language
insilmaril@28
    89
    \item visual thinking, day dreams
insilmaril@28
    90
    \item intuition and emotion
insilmaril@28
    91
    \item overview of things
insilmaril@28
    92
    \item creativity
insilmaril@28
    93
    \item art, music, dancing
insilmaril@28
    94
    \item non-linear thinking, connecting things
insilmaril@28
    95
    \item spatial awareness
insilmaril@28
    96
\end{itemize}    
insilmaril@28
    97
In our science oriented society we have learned to mainly rely on our
insilmaril@28
    98
left side of the brain, the "rational" one. In other cultures,
insilmaril@28
    99
especially like the native americans and other "old" cultures, the right
insilmaril@28
   100
side is much more important. maps are just one way to stimulate the
insilmaril@28
   101
other side and make use of additional ressources we all have.

\subsection{Where could I use a map?}
insilmaril@28
   105
Here are some examples, how you can use those maps
insilmaril@28
   106
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   107
    \item to prepare articles, papers, books, talks, \ldots
insilmaril@28
   108
    \item to sort complex data
insilmaril@28
   109
    \item to memorize facts, persons, vocabulary, \ldots
insilmaril@28
   110
    \item to sort emails, files and bookmarks on your computer
insilmaril@28
   111
    \item to moderate conferences
insilmaril@28
   112
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   113
insilmaril@28
   114
\subsection{What you shouldn't do with a map...}
insilmaril@28
   115
A map drawn by somebody shows the way the author thinks. There is
insilmaril@28
   116
no right or wrong in the way it is drawn, so there is no way to critize
insilmaril@28
   117
it. "It is, what it is" ({\sc F.~Lehmann}).

   126
\vym uses two windows: an editor for the map itself and another one for
insilmaril@28
   127
notes, which are part of the map. Let's call them {\em mapeditor} and
insilmaril@28
   128
{\em noteeditor}: 
insilmaril@28
   129
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   130
	\includegraphics[width=8cm]{windows.png}
insilmaril@28
   131
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   132
Usually you will work in the {\em mapeditor} by just adding new
insilmaril@28
   133
branches, moving around and reordering them. The various ways to do this
insilmaril@28
   134
will be explained in \ref{mapeditor}. You can store additional
insilmaril@28
   135
information e.g. the content of a email easily in a {\em branch}: Just
insilmaril@28
   136
type or copy\&paste it into the {\em noteeditor}. Working with notes is
insilmaril@28
   137
explained in \ref{noteeditor}
insilmaril@28
   138
insilmaril@28
   139
The map itself has always a {\em mapcenter}.  The
insilmaril@28
   140
mapcenter has {\em branches} just like the trunk of a tree. Each branch
insilmaril@28
   141
in turn may have branches again.
insilmaril@28
   142
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   143
	\includegraphics[width=10cm]{branches.png}
insilmaril@28
   144
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   145
We will call a branch directly connected to the mapcenter a {\em
insilmaril@28
   146
mainbranch}, because it determines the position of all its child
insilmaril@28
   147
branches.
insilmaril@28
   148
insilmaril@28
   149
The mapcenter and the branches all have a {\em heading}. This is the
insilmaril@28
   150
text you see in the mapeditor. Usually it should just be one or a few
insilmaril@28
   151
words, so that one can easily keep track of the whole map.
insilmaril@28
   152
insilmaril@28
   153
insilmaril@28
   154
In the toolbar above the mapeditor you see various symbols.
insilmaril@28
   155

	\includegraphics[width=8cm]{default-flags.png}
insilmaril@28
   157
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   158
These are called {\em flags} and can be used to mark branches in the
insilmaril@28
   159
map, e.g. if something is important or questionable. 
insilmaril@28
   160
There are also more flags set by \vym automatically to show additional
insilmaril@28
   161
information, e.g. when a  exists for a  particular branch.

\section{Mapeditor} \label {mapeditor}
insilmaril@28
   164
\subsection{Start a new map}
insilmaril@28
   165
After \vym is started two windows will open: the mapeditor and the
insilmaril@28
   166
noteditor. Usually you will work in both windows, but at the moment we
insilmaril@28
   167
will just need the mapeditor. 
insilmaril@28
   168
insilmaril@28
   169
Select the mapcenter "New map" in the middle of the mapeditor by
insilmaril@28
   170
left-clicking with the mouse. It will turn yellow to show that is
insilmaril@28
   171
selected. There are two ways to add a new branch to the center:
insilmaril@28
   172
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   173
	\item Main menu on top of mapeditor window:
insilmaril@28
   174
	Edit \ra Add new Branch
insilmaril@28
   175
	\item Press \key{Ins}
insilmaril@28
   176
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   177
A new branch will appear and you will be able to type the heading of the
insilmaril@28
   178
branch. Finish adding the new branch by pressing \key{Enter}.
insilmaril@28
   179
%tipp
insilmaril@28
   180
Sometimes it comes handy to add a new branch above or below the current
insilmaril@28
   181
one. Use \key{Ins} together with \key{Shift} or \key{Ctrl}.
insilmaril@28
   182
insilmaril@28
   183
\subsection{Navigate through a map}
insilmaril@28
   184
\subsubsection*{Select branches}
insilmaril@28
   185
To select branches you can use the left button of your mouse or also the
insilmaril@28
   186
arrow keys. Depending on the {\em orientation} of a branch type
insilmaril@28
   187
\key{\la} or \key{\ra} to get nearer to the mapcenter or deeper
insilmaril@28
   188
down into the branches. Within a set of branches, let's call them a 
insilmaril@28
   189
{\em subtree}, you can use \key{\ua} and \key{\da} to go up and down. You can
insilmaril@28
   190
also use \key{Pos1} and \key{End} to select the first and last branch.
insilmaril@28
   191
insilmaril@28
   192
insilmaril@28
   193
\subsubsection*{Zoom a map}
insilmaril@28
   194
While adding more and more branches the size of the map may become
insilmaril@28
   195
bigger than the mapeditor window. You can use the scrollbars on the
insilmaril@28
   196
right and the bottom of your mapeditor window to scroll, but it is
insilmaril@28
   197
easier to just scroll using the left mouse button: Click onto the {\em
insilmaril@28
   198
canvas} itself, the empty space somewhere between the branches. The
insilmaril@28
   199
mouse pointer will change from an arrow to a hand, now move the visible
insilmaril@28
   200
part of the map to show the desired part.
insilmaril@28
   201
insilmaril@28
   202
If you select branches using the arrow keys, the map will scroll
insilmaril@28
   203
to ensure that the selected branch is always visible.
insilmaril@28
   204
insilmaril@28
   205
Working with huge maps, the {\em zoom}-function comes in handy: You can
insilmaril@28
   206
use 
insilmaril@28
   207
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   208
	\item from the menu View \ra Zoom
insilmaril@28
   209
	\item the toolbar buttons 
insilmaril@28
   210
		\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   211
			\includegraphics[width=3cm]{zoom-buttons.png}
insilmaril@28
   212
		\end{center}	
insilmaril@28
   213
\end{itemize}	
insilmaril@28
   214
The crossed magnifying lens resets the zoomed view to its original size.
insilmaril@28
   215
insilmaril@28
   216
insilmaril@28
   217
\subsubsection*{Find Function} \label{findwindow}
insilmaril@28
   218
With huge maps there is the need to have a
insilmaril@28
   219
find function. Choose Edit \ra Find to open the Find Window:
insilmaril@28
   220
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   221
	\includegraphics[width=6cm]{find-window.png}
insilmaril@28
   222
\end{center}	
insilmaril@28
   223
The text you enter here will be searched in all the headings and also in
insilmaril@28
   224
notes. Everytime you press the "Find"-button it will look for the next
insilmaril@28
   225
occurence, which then will be selected automatically. If the search
insilmaril@28
   226
fails, there will appear a short message "Nothing found" or a few
insilmaril@28
   227
seconds in the {\em statusbar} on the bottom of the mapeditor.
insilmaril@28
   228
insilmaril@28
   229
\subsubsection*{Scroll a part of the map}
insilmaril@28
   230
A very big subtree of a map e.g. a branch with hundreds of childs makes
insilmaril@28
   231
it very hard to keep an overview over the whole map. You can hide all
insilmaril@28
   232
the childs of a branch by {\em scrolling} it -- this function is also
insilmaril@28
   233
often called {\em folding}. Think of the whole subtree as painted onto a
insilmaril@28
   234
big newspaper. You can scroll the paper to a small roll, leaving just
insilmaril@28
   235
the headline readable.
insilmaril@28
   236
insilmaril@28
   237
To scroll or unscroll a branch and its childs, press the
insilmaril@28
   238
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   239
	\item \key{Scroll} key or
insilmaril@28
   240
	\item press the middle-mouse button or
insilmaril@28
   241
	\item choose the little scroll from the toolbar.
insilmaril@28
   242
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   243
If you select parts of a scrolled branch e.g. using the find function or
insilmaril@28
   244
by using the arrow-keys, it will unscroll temporary. This is shown as a
insilmaril@28
   245
scroll with a little hour glass. If the temporary unscrolled part is not
insilmaril@28
   246
longer needed, it will be hidden again automatically. It is also
insilmaril@28
   247
possible to unscroll all branches using "Edit\ra Unscroll all scrolled
insilmaril@28
   248
branches".
insilmaril@28
   249
insilmaril@28
   250
insilmaril@28
   251
insilmaril@28
   252
\subsection{Modify and move branches}
insilmaril@28
   253
\subsubsection*{Modify the heading of a branch}
insilmaril@28
   254
You can edit the heading by selecting the branch and then
insilmaril@28
   255
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   256
	\item pressing \key{Enter}
insilmaril@28
   257
	\item double-clicking with left mouse.
insilmaril@28
   258
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   259
Just type the new heading (or edit the old one) and press \key{Enter}.
insilmaril@28
   260
insilmaril@28
   261
\subsubsection*{Move a branch}
insilmaril@28
   262
The easiest way to move a branch is to select it with left-mouse and
insilmaril@28
   263
drag it to the destination while keeping the mouse button pressed.
insilmaril@28
   264
Depending on the branch  it will be
insilmaril@28
   265
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   266
	\item moved to the destination or
insilmaril@28
   267
	\item {\em linked} to a new {\em parent} (mapcenter or branch)
insilmaril@28
   268
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   269
If you drag the branch over another one or over the mapcenter, you will
insilmaril@28
   270
notice that the  link connecting it to the old parent will be changed to
insilmaril@28
   271
lead to the  new parent which is now under your mousepointer. 
insilmaril@28
   272
If you release the button now, the branch will be relinked.
insilmaril@28
   273
insilmaril@28
   274
If you release the button in the middle of nowhere, the result will
insilmaril@28
   275
depend on the type of branch you are releasing:
insilmaril@28
   276
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   277
	\item A mainbranch is directly connected to the mapcenter.
insilmaril@28
   278
		It will stay on its new position.
insilmaril@28
   279
	\item An ordinary branch will "jump" back to its original position.	
insilmaril@28
   280
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   281
Thus you can easily rearrange the layout of the mainbranches to avoid
insilmaril@28
   282
overlapping of their subtrees.
insilmaril@28
   283
There is another convenient way to move branches, especially if you want
insilmaril@28
   284
to {\em reorder} a subtree: You can move a branch up or down in a
insilmaril@28
   285
subtree by
insilmaril@28
   286
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   287
	\item pressing \key{\ua} and \key {\da}
insilmaril@28
   288
	\item selecting Edit \ra Move branch
insilmaril@28
   289
	\item clicking on the toolbar buttons:
insilmaril@28
   290

insilmaril@28
   293
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   294
%tipp
insilmaril@28
   295
There is yet another way to move branches: If you press \key{Shift} or
insilmaril@28
   296
\key{Ctrl} while moving with the mouse, the branch will be added above
insilmaril@28
   297
or below the one the mouse pointer is over. This helps also to reorder a
insilmaril@28
   298
map.

\subsection{The right side of your brain - colors and images}
insilmaril@28
   301
\subsubsection*{Change color of a heading}
insilmaril@28
   302
You can also use colors to put more information into a map, e.g. use
insilmaril@28
   303
red, green and more colors to prioritize tasks. Again you can
insilmaril@28
   304
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   305
	\item use the menu and choose e.g Format \rq Set Color
insilmaril@28
   306
	\item use the toolbar
insilmaril@28
   307
		\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   308
			\includegraphics[width=3cm]{color-buttons.png}
insilmaril@28
   309
		\end{center}	
insilmaril@28
   310
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   311
The first button (black in the graphic above) shows the actual color.
insilmaril@28
   312
Clicking on it let's you choose another color. You can also "pick"
insilmaril@28
   313
another color by selecting a branch with the desired color and using the
insilmaril@28
   314
"pick color" button. Both of the buttons showing a bucket actually put
insilmaril@28
   315
the current color to the selected branch. While the first one just
insilmaril@28
   316
colors the heading of the selection, the last one also colors all the
insilmaril@28
   317
childs of the selected branch.
insilmaril@28
   318
insilmaril@28
   319
%tipp
insilmaril@28
   320
A very useful function is the "copy color" using the mouse: Select the
insilmaril@28
   321
branch which should get the new color, then press \key{Ctrl} and
insilmaril@28
   322
simultanously click with left-mouse on another branch to copy its color
insilmaril@28
   323
to the first one. Here the childs of the selection also will get the new
insilmaril@28
   324
color, if you just want to color the selection itself, additionally
insilmaril@28
   325
press \key{Shift}.
insilmaril@28
   326
insilmaril@28
   327
\subsubsection*{Use flags}
insilmaril@28
   328
\vym provides various flags. You see them in the toolbar on top of the
insilmaril@28
   329
mapeditor window. (Note: Like all toolbars you can also move them to the
insilmaril@28
   330
left or the right side of the window or even detach them. Just grab the
insilmaril@28
   331
very left "dotted" part of the toolbar with your left-mouse button.) 
insilmaril@28
   332
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   333
	\includegraphics[width=8cm]{default-flags.png}
insilmaril@28
   334
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   335
If you have a branch selected, you can set any number of flags by
insilmaril@28
   336
clicking them in the toolbar. The toolbar buttons change their state and
insilmaril@28
   337
always reflect the flags set in the selected branch.
insilmaril@28
   338
insilmaril@28
   339
Presently \vym uses two kinds of flags: {\em System Flags} and {\em
insilmaril@28
   340
Standard Flags}. The standard flags are those shown in the toolbar.
insilmaril@28
   341
System flags are set by \vym to indicate e.g. that there is additional
insilmaril@28
   342
information in a note (more on this in \ref{noteeditor}). Later versions
insilmaril@28
   343
of \vym may have another kind of flags, which may be edited by the user.
insilmaril@28
   344
insilmaril@28
   345
\subsubsection*{Images}
insilmaril@28
   346
You can add a image to a branch or the mapcenter by clicking with the
insilmaril@28
   347
right-mouse button. A context menu will open, choose "Add Image". A
insilmaril@28
   348
dialog window lets you choose the image to load. 
insilmaril@28
   349
\footnote{Supported image types are: PNG, BMP, XBM, XPM and PNM. It may
insilmaril@28
   350
	also support JPEG, MNG and GIF, if specially configured during
insilmaril@28
   351
	compilation (as done when \vym is part of SUSE LINUX).}
insilmaril@28
   352
While an image is selected in the dialog, you can see a preview of the
insilmaril@28
   353
image.	
insilmaril@28
   354
insilmaril@28
   355
You can position the image anywhere you want, just drag it with left
insilmaril@28
   356
mouse. To relink it to another branch, press \key{Shift} while moving
insilmaril@28
   357
it. To delete it, press \key{Del}. 
insilmaril@28
   358
insilmaril@28
   359
If you right-click onto an image, a context menu will open which let's
insilmaril@28
   360
you first choose one of several image formats. Then a file dialog opens
insilmaril@28
   361
to save the image. Hint: This is used to "export" the image, it will be
insilmaril@28
   362
saved anyway in the map itself! You can also cut and
insilmaril@28
   363
copy images, but it is not possible to add objects to an image\footnote{
insilmaril@28
   364
	Images are regarded as "extra feature". It would make working with
insilmaril@28
   365
	the map much more complex if e.g. images could be linked to images.}
insilmaril@28
   366
insilmaril@28
   367
The option \lq{\bf Use for export} \rq controls the output of exports
insilmaril@28
   368
e.g. to HTML: If set to no, the image won't appear in the {\em text}
insilmaril@28
   369
part of the output. This is useful for large images or if images are
insilmaril@28
   370
used as a kind of frame e.g. the famous cloud symbol around a part of
insilmaril@28
   371
the map. Those shouldn't appear in the middle of the text.
insilmaril@28
   372
insilmaril@28
   373
At the moment image support is preliminary: Images will be saved
insilmaril@28
   374
together with all the other data of a map in the {\tt .vym}-file.
insilmaril@28
   375
Later versions will include more functionality like resizing the images,
insilmaril@28
   376
changing its z-value (put it into background) etc.
insilmaril@28
   377
insilmaril@28
   378
\subsubsection*{Frames}
insilmaril@28
   379
A frame can be added to a branch by clicking with the
insilmaril@28
   380
right-mouse button.  A context menu will open, where you can choose the
insilmaril@28
   381
frame. At the moment just a rectangle resp. "No Frame" will be offered,
insilmaril@28
   382
nevertheless you can use images as frames. Have a look at the demo map
insilmaril@28
   383
{\tt todo.vym} as an example, where the mapcenter is a cloud. You can
insilmaril@28
   384
use an external drawing program like {\tt gimp} to create an image,
insilmaril@28
   385
preferable with an transparency channel, so that you can design frames
insilmaril@28
   386
which don't use a rectangular borderline, just like the cloud.
insilmaril@28
   387
insilmaril@28
   388
insilmaril@28
   389
\subsection{Background design}
insilmaril@28
   390
The design of the background of a map and also of the links connecting
insilmaril@28
   391
various parts of the map can be changed by
insilmaril@28
   392
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   393
	\item Selecting Format from the menu
insilmaril@28
   394
	\item Right clicking onto the canvas, which will open a context menu
insilmaril@28
   395
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   396
insilmaril@28
   397
\subsubsection*{Background color}
insilmaril@28
   398
The color is set (and also displayed) as "Set background color".
insilmaril@28
   399
insilmaril@28
   400
\subsubsection*{Link color}
insilmaril@28
   401
Links connecting branches can be colored in one of the following ways:
insilmaril@28
   402
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   403
	\item use the color of the heading of the branch the links is
insilmaril@28
   404
	\item use {\em one} color for all links. The default color is blue.
insilmaril@28
   405
	leading to.
insilmaril@28
   406
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   407
The latter can be set with "Set link color". Check or uncheck the "Use
insilmaril@28
   408
color of heading for link" option to choose one of the two designs for
insilmaril@28
   409
your map.
insilmaril@28
   410
insilmaril@28
   411
\subsubsection*{Link style}
insilmaril@28
   412
\vym offers four different styles for the appearences of links:
insilmaril@28
   413
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   414
	\item Line
insilmaril@28
   415
	\item Parabel
insilmaril@28
   416
	\item Thick Line
insilmaril@28
   417
	\item Thick Parabel
insilmaril@28
   418
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   419
The "thick" styles only draw links starting at mapcenter thick, the rest
insilmaril@28
   420
of the map is always painted "thin".
insilmaril@28
   421
insilmaril@28
   422
insilmaril@28
   423
\subsection{Link to other documents}
insilmaril@28
   424
Presently \vym supports two kind of links:
insilmaril@28
   425
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   426
	\item Document, which will be opened in an external webbrowser
insilmaril@28
   427
	\item \vym map, which will be opened in \vym itself
insilmaril@28
   428
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   429
insilmaril@28
   430
\subsubsection*{Webbrowser}
insilmaril@28
   431
Modern Webbrowsers like {\tt konqueror} are able to display various
insilmaril@28
   432
types of files, both local or in the internet. To enter the URL of
insilmaril@28
   433
any document, right-click  onto a branch or use the Edit Menu
insilmaril@28
   434
and choose "Edit URL". Enter the path to your document (or copy and
insilmaril@28
   435
paste it from your browser). Examples for valid paths are:
insilmaril@28
   436
\begin{verbatim}
insilmaril@28
   437
	http://www.insilmaril.de/vym/index.html
insilmaril@28
   438
	file:/usr/share/doc/packages/vym/doc/vym.pdf
insilmaril@28
   439
\end{verbatim}
insilmaril@28
   440
If an URL was entered, a little globe will appear in the branch. By
insilmaril@28
   441
clicking on the globe in the toolbar or the context menu an external
insilmaril@28
   442
browser\footnote{
insilmaril@28
   443
	The browser can be changed in the Settings Menu.}
insilmaril@28
   444
will be started.
insilmaril@28
   445
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   446
	\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{flag-url.png}
insilmaril@28
   447
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   448
If you want to keep bookmarks in a map, you may want to copy the heading
insilmaril@28
   449
as URL: Right click onto the branch and select "Use heading for URL".
insilmaril@28
   450
insilmaril@28
   451
\subsubsection*{\vym map}
insilmaril@28
   452
To link to to another map right click on a branch or choose "Edit \ra
insilmaril@28
   453
Enter \vym link". A file dialog opens where you can choose the map. A
insilmaril@28
   454
branch with a link is marked with 
insilmaril@28
   455
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   456
	\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{flag-vymlink.png}
insilmaril@28
   457
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   458
Clicking this flag in the toolbar or in the context menu of a branch
insilmaril@28
   459
will open the map in another tab (see \ref{tabs} for working with
insilmaril@28
   460
multiple maps). To delete an existing link, just press the "Cancel"
insilmaril@28
   461
button.
insilmaril@28
   462
insilmaril@28
   463
Technical note: Internally \vym uses absolute paths, to avoid opening
insilmaril@28
   464
several tabs containing the same map. When a map is saved, this path is
insilmaril@28
   465
converted to a relative one (e.g. {\tt /home/user/vym.map} might become
insilmaril@28
   466
{\tt ./vym.map}. This makes it fairly easy to use multiple maps on
insilmaril@28
   467
different computers or export them to HTML in future.
insilmaril@28
   468
insilmaril@28
   469
\subsection{Multiple maps} \label{tabs}
insilmaril@28
   470
You can work on multiple maps at the same time. Each new map is opened
insilmaril@28
   471
in another {\em tab}. The available tabs are shown just above the
insilmaril@28
   472
mapeditor. You can use the normal cut/copy/paste functions to
insilmaril@28
   473
copy data from one map to another.

\section{Noteeditor} \label {noteeditor}
insilmaril@28
   489
If you want to save more text in a branch e.g. a complete email, a
insilmaril@28
   490
cooking recipe, or the whole source code of a software project, you can
insilmaril@28
   491
use the noteeditor. Since version 1.4.7 \vym supports formatted text in
insilmaril@28
   492
the noteeditor.
insilmaril@28
   493
insilmaril@28
   494
\subsubsection*{States}
insilmaril@28
   495
Before you can type or paste text into it, you have
insilmaril@28
   496
to select a branch in the mapeditor. Note that the background color
insilmaril@28
   497
of the noteeditor indicates its state:
insilmaril@28
   498
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   499
	\item black: no branch selected
insilmaril@28
   500
	\item grey: no text entered yet
insilmaril@28
   501
	\item white: text is already available
insilmaril@28
   502
\end{itemize}	
insilmaril@28
   503
To show you in the mapeditor itself that there is a note with more
insilmaril@28
   504
information for a particular branch, a little note flag will appear next
insilmaril@28
   505
to the heading of the branch. See the lower branch on the right side:
insilmaril@28
   506
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   507
	\includegraphics[width=8cm]{branches-flags.png}
insilmaril@28
   508
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   509
insilmaril@28
   510
\subsubsection*{Import and export notes}
insilmaril@28
   511
The note is always saved automatically within the \vym file itself.
insilmaril@28
   512
Nevertheless sometimes it is nice to import a note from an external file
insilmaril@28
   513
or write it. Use "File\ra~Import" and "File\ra~Export" to do so. 
insilmaril@28
   514
insilmaril@28
   515
\subsubsection*{Edit and print note}
insilmaril@28
   516
Editing works like in any simple texteditor, including undo and redo
insilmaril@28
   517
functions. You can delete the complete note by clicking the
insilmaril@28
   518
trashcan. Only the note itself is printed by clicking the printer icon.
insilmaril@28
   519
insilmaril@28
   520
When pasting into the editor using the X11 copy\&paste mechanism, the
insilmaril@28
   521
editor will create a paragraph for each new line. Usually this is not
insilmaril@28
   522
wanted, so there you can convert all paragraphs into linebreaks by using
insilmaril@28
   523
Edit~\ra~Remove~Paragraphs or \key{ALT-X}.
insilmaril@28
   524
insilmaril@28
   525
\subsubsection*{Fonts}
insilmaril@28
   526
The noteeditor is ment to be used for simple notes, not really as full
insilmaril@28
   527
featured text editor. Because of many requests \vym supports now
insilmaril@28
   528
formatted text in the noteeditor\footnote{
insilmaril@28
   529
	\vym uses the QRichtText format, which is basically a subset of the
insilmaril@28
   530
	formatting provided in HTML.}
insilmaril@28
   531
Two default fonts are supported which can be set in the Settings menu.
insilmaril@28
   532
One is a fixed width font, the other has variable width. The fixed font
insilmaril@28
   533
is usually used for emails, source code etc.\ while the variable font is
insilmaril@28
   534
used for simple notes, where one doesn't need fixed character widths.
insilmaril@28
   535
Both fonts can easily switched using the following symbol from the
insilmaril@28
   536
toolbar:
insilmaril@28
   537
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   538
	\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{formatfixedfont.png}
insilmaril@28
   539
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   540
In the Settings menu both fonts can be set and also which font should be
insilmaril@28
   541
used for default. 
insilmaril@28
   542
insilmaril@28
   543
Additionally to the default fonts any font installed on your system can
insilmaril@28
   544
be used. Please note, that the chosen font also will be used for HTML
insilmaril@28
   545
exports, so you should only use fonts which are available generally.
insilmaril@28
   546
insilmaril@28
   547
\subsubsection*{Colors and formatted text}
insilmaril@28
   548
Colors and text attributes (e.g. italic, bold) can 
insilmaril@28
   549
be set with the buttons above the text. 
insilmaril@28
   550
The text itself is divided in paragraphs. For each paragraph the format
insilmaril@28
   551
can be set (e.g. centered, right). A paragraph is ended when a
insilmaril@28
   552
\key{Return} is entered. If you just want to begin a new line, press
insilmaril@28
   553
\key{CTRL-Return}.
insilmaril@28
   554
insilmaril@28
   555
\subsubsection*{Finding text}
insilmaril@28
   556
The noteeditor itself has no Find function, use Find in the mapeditor,
insilmaril@28
   557
which will also search all notes (see \ref{findwindow}).
insilmaril@28
   558
insilmaril@28
   559
\subsubsection*{Pasting text into note editor}
insilmaril@28
   560
Often you will paste text into the editor from another application e.g.
insilmaril@28
   561
an email. Normally \vym will generate a new paragraph for each new line.
insilmaril@28
   562
This usually is not what you want, so you can choose from the menu
insilmaril@28
   563
insilmaril@28
   564
\paragraph{Edit \ra Convert Paragraphs:}
insilmaril@28
   565
This turns paragraphs in selected text (or all text, if nothing is
insilmaril@28

\section{Hello world}
insilmaril@28
   575
\vym can export its maps in various formats and can import data from
insilmaril@28
   576
outside (though import is still limited at the moment).
insilmaril@28
   577
insilmaril@28
   578
\subsection{Export}
insilmaril@28
   579
The format in which the map will be exported can be chosen with
insilmaril@28
   580
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   581
	\item File \ra Export \ra {\em format}
insilmaril@28
   582
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   583
\vym offers both HTML and ASCII export.
insilmaril@28
   584
insilmaril@28
   585
\subsubsection*{Image}
insilmaril@28
   586
\vym supports all image formats which are natively supported by the
insilmaril@28
   587
QT~toolkit:
insilmaril@28
   588
BMP, JPEG, PBM, PGM, PNG, PPN, XPM, and XBM.
insilmaril@28
   589
For use in websites and for sending images by email PNG is a good
insilmaril@28
   590
recommodation regarding quality and size of the image. \vym uses QTs
insilmaril@28
   591
default options for compressing the images.
insilmaril@28
   592
insilmaril@28
   593
\subsubsection*{ASCII}
insilmaril@28
   594
Exporting an image as text is somewhat experimental at the moment. Later
insilmaril@28
   595
this will probably done using stylesheets. So the output may change in
insilmaril@28
   596
future versions of \vym.
insilmaril@28
   597
insilmaril@28
   598
\subsubsection*{HTML}
insilmaril@28
   599
Before a map is exported as HTML, it will be first written as XML into a
insilmaril@28
   600
directory (see \ref{xmlexport}). Then the external program {\tt
insilmaril@28
   601
xsltproc}\footnote{On SUSE Linux {\tt xsltproc} is installed by
insilmaril@28
   602
default.}
insilmaril@28
   603
will be called to process the XML file and generate HTML code.
insilmaril@28
   604
%A script then will transform the XML
insilmaril@28
   605
%version. 
insilmaril@28
   606
A dialog allows to set various options:
insilmaril@28
   607
\begin{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   608
	\item {\bf Include image:} If set, \vym will creat an image map at
insilmaril@28
   609
	the top of the HTML output. Clicking on a branch in the map will
insilmaril@28
   610
	jump to the corresponding section in the output.
insilmaril@28
   611
insilmaril@28
   612
	\item {\bf Colored headings:}
insilmaril@28
   613
	If set to yes, \vym will color the headings in the text part  with the
insilmaril@28
   614
	same colors like in the map.
insilmaril@28
   615
	\item {\bf Show Warnings:}
insilmaril@28
   616
	If set to yes, \vym will ask before overwriting data.
insilmaril@28
   617
	\item {\bf Show output:}
insilmaril@28
   618
	This is useful mainly for debugging. It will show how the processing of
insilmaril@28
   619
	the XML file works by calling the external {\tt xsltproc}.
insilmaril@28
   620
\end{itemize}
insilmaril@28
   621
Additionally the paths to the CSS and XSL stylesheets can be set. By
insilmaril@28
   622
default on SUSE~Linux they will be in {\tt /usr/share/vym/styles}.
insilmaril@28

%\paragraph{Show output:} This is used for debugging. \vym uses an
insilmaril@28
   650
%the external script {\tt vym2html.sh} to preprocess the XML-data. Then
insilmaril@28
   651
%\vym calls {\tt xsltproc} to generate the HTML page by using various
insilmaril@28
   652
%{\tt .xsl} stylesheets and {\tt wireframe.css}. If you run into problems
insilmaril@28
   653
%here, changing paths in {\tt $\sim$/.qt/vymrc} might help.
insilmaril@28
   654
insilmaril@28
   655
\subsubsection*{XML} \label{xmlexport}
insilmaril@28
   656
The map is written into a directory both as an image and as XML. The
insilmaril@28
   657
directory is set in a file dialog. If the directory is not empty, you
insilmaril@28
   658
will be questioned if you risk to overwrite its contents.
insilmaril@28
   659
insilmaril@28
   660
It is possible to export different maps into the same directory. Each
insilmaril@28
   661
file generated will have the map's name as prefix, e.g. {\tt todo.vym}
insilmaril@28
   662
becomes {\tt todo.xml}, {\tt todo.png}, {\tt todo-image-1.png} and so
insilmaril@28
   663
on. This is useful if e.g. for a website several combined maps have to
insilmaril@28
   664
be stored in the same directory.
insilmaril@28
   665
insilmaril@28
   666
\subsection{Import} 
insilmaril@28
   667
At the moment \vym can read a directory structure. This is mainly for
insilmaril@28
   668
testing \vym e.g. to easily create huge maps used for benchmarks (yes,
insilmaril@28
   669
there is still room to optimize \vym ;-)
insilmaril@28
   670
insilmaril@28
   671
Many other applications meanwhile can export their data using XML, so
insilmaril@28
   672
volunteers to write import filters are welcome.
insilmaril@28
   673
insilmaril@28
   674
\subsection{File format}
insilmaril@28
   675
\vym maps usually have the postfix "{\tt .vym}" and represent a
insilmaril@28
   676
compressed archive of data. If you want to have a
insilmaril@28
   677
closer look into the data structure, just uncompress the map manually
insilmaril@28
   678
using
insilmaril@28
   679
\begin{verbatim}
insilmaril@28
   680
	unzip vymfile.vym
insilmaril@28
   681
\end{verbatim}
insilmaril@28
   682
A directory named {\tt vymfile} will be created containing further
insilmaril@28
   683
directories both for {\tt images} and {\tt flags}. In the {\tt vymfile}
insilmaril@28
   684
directory you will find the map itself, usually named {\tt vymfile.xml}.
insilmaril@28
   685
insilmaril@28
   686
This file can be loaded directly into \vym, it does not have to be
insilmaril@28
   687
compressed. If you want to compress all the data yourself, use
insilmaril@28
   688
\begin{verbatim}
insilmaril@28
   689
	cd vymfile
insilmaril@28
   690
	zip -r vymfile.vym .
insilmaril@28

\section{History of \vym}
insilmaril@28
   700
\subsection{Future}
insilmaril@28
   701
There are lots of features which might find their way into \vym.
insilmaril@28
   702
Together with \vym you should have received a directory with example
insilmaril@28
   703
maps e.g. on SUSE~LINUX this is
insilmaril@28
   704
\begin{center}
insilmaril@28
   705
	{\tt /usr/share/doc/packages/vym/demos}
insilmaril@28
   706
\end{center}
insilmaril@28
   707
where you find the map {\tt todo.vym}. It lists quite a lot of things to
insilmaril@28
   708
be done in future. If you have more ideas, contact the author at
insilmaril@28
   709
{\tt vym@insilmaril.de}.
