    Research output: Contribution to journalConference paperpeer-review


    The WaRMreader[4] method of using XY-pic for placing labels over importedgraphics was presented at TUG’99in Vancouver [3]. Central to this methodis the use of a .bb file, which contains information concerning “marked points”within the graphic, as well as specifying the bounding-box.A plugin module has been developed, for use with Adobe’s Illustrator[2](vers. 9, and later), which makes it easy to specify the desired marked points,and store the corresponding information within a .bb file. This information isvaluable markup which could be used also for different purposes, with othersoftware packages.In this talk we demonstrate some possible work-flows for using the new plugintool. Also, we describe the work done to convince the Illustrator DevelopmentTeam, at Adobe Systems Inc., that such a tool is a simple and useful addition totheir software.
