NAME
       dxpaint - DECwindows bitmap editor

SYNOPSIS
       dxpaint [ flags ]

FLAGS
       Specifies  the color of the window's border (color displays only).  The
       default is the window border color specified by	the  Session  Manager.
       Specifies  the  color of the window's background (color displays only).
       The default is the window background color  specified  by  the  Session
       Manager.	  Specifies  the  display screen on which dxpaint displays its
       window.	If the display option is not specified, dxpaint uses the  dis‐
       play  screen  specified by your DISPLAY environment variable.  The dis‐
       play option has the format  hostname:number.   Using  two  colons  (::)
       instead	of  one (:) indicates that DECnet is to be used for transport.
       The default is :0.  For more information, see X(1X).   This  option  is
       the  same  as the -d option.  Specifies the color of the window's fore‐
       ground (color displays only).  The default  is  the  window  foreground
       color specified by the Session Manager.	Specifies the font used as the
       output font in digital mode.  Any fixed-width font can  be  used.   The
       default is 6x10.

DESCRIPTION
       The  dxpaint  application  allows  you to create and edit bitmap images
       (for example, simple sketches or pictures).  These images  are  treated
       as  a  collection of pixels.  By using different drawing tools, you can
       edit pixels to create lines, shapes, and text.	The  resulting	bitmap
       image can then be saved as a file, printed, or copied to another appli‐
       cation.

       For the bitmap image, the standard  file	 format	 is  Digital  Document
       Interchange  Format  (DDIF).   Therefore,  you  can  also project these
       images on your display with the DDIF Viewer.

       The dxpaint window offers a variety of art tools and basic shapes.  For
       example,	 you  can  work	 with  a  pencil, a paintbrush, a can of spray
       paint, or a paint bucket.  The current tool is highlighted.  To make  a
       tool  current,  click  on it.  Only one tool on the tool palette can be
       active at a time and that tool remains active until  you	 make  another
       selection.

MENUS
       The dxpaint application contains the following menus:

       File Edit Text Options

   File Menu
       The  File  menu	contains the following items: Displays a dialog box in
       which you specify the file to open.  The dialog box displays the	 names
       of  the graphics files in the current directory.	 To specify a graphics
       file not listed, type the file name.  Displays a dialog	box  in	 which
       you specify the file to include in the current picture.	The dialog box
       displays the names of the graphics  files  in  the  current  directory.
       Saves  the picture in the current file. If no file exists, dxpaint dis‐
       plays a dialog box that prompts for the file name.  Saves  the  picture
       in  a file whose name you specify.  Prints the picture using the values
       previously set in the Print dialog box.	If this	 is  the  first	 print
       request,	 the Print dialog box is displayed.  Displays the Print dialog
       box (which allows you to specify	 a  printer,  output  format,  and  so
       forth)  and prints the picture using these settings.  The output format
       can be ANSI2 (sixel) or PostScript.  If you are using an LA50  printer,
       you  must  specify  an  aspect ratio of 2:1.  Quits the current dxpaint
       session and closes the dxpaint  window.	 If  no	 changes  were	saved,
       dxpaint displays a Caution dialog box.

   Edit Menu
       The  Edit  menu contains the following menu items: Undoes or redoes the
       last paint operation.  Clears the selection from the drawing window and

       window onto the clipboard.  Copies the image selected with  the	Selec‐
       tion  Box  tool	to the center of the canvas.  Pastes an image from the
       clipboard into the drawing window.  Erases any area previously selected
       with  the  selection box or scissors tool.  Creates a negative image of
       the selection by displaying  it	in  reverse  video.   Repositions  the
       selection  in the upper left corner of the window and discards the rest
       of the painting.	 Displays a dialog box that lets you  scale  a	selec‐
       tion.  Enter a number less than 100 to shrink the selection or a number
       greater than 100 to expand the selection.  Erases the  entire  contents
       of the drawing window.  Selects the entire contents of the drawing win‐
       dow.  Displays a dialog box that lets you  scale	 the  entire  picture.
       Enter  a number less than 100 to shrink the picture or a number greater
       than 100 to expand the picture.

   Options Menu
       The Options menu contains the following menu items: Displays  a	dialog
       box  that  lets	you choose the size of the drawing window and lets you

       box that provides a selection of designs that you can use as border and
       fill patterns.  The foreground, background,  and	 "none"	 patterns  are
       always  available.   Click on Outline Pattern to signal a change in the
       border pattern; click on Fill Pattern to signal a change	 in  the  fill

       background, and "none") to select it as the  border  or	fill  pattern.
       Displays a dialog box that lets you modify an existing pattern.	Before
       choosing this menu item, you must indicate whether you are  customizing
       a border or a fill pattern by clicking on the appropriate button in the
       Patterns dialog box.   Next, choose the pattern to  edit.   The	dialog

X DEFAULTS
       The dxpaint application uses the values in the .Xdefaults file when you
       logged  in and uses the appropriate resource specification to customize
       the appearance or characteristics of its displayed dxpaint window.  The
       format for a resource specification in the .Xdefaults file is:

       [name*]resource:	  value	 Specifies  the	 application  name or the name
       string that restricts the resource assignment to that application or to
       a  component of an application.	If this argument is not specified, the
       resource assignment is globally available to all X applications.	 Spec‐
       ifies  the resource.  Specifies the value that is to be assigned to the
       resource.

       For more information, see X(1X).

       Because each toolkit-based application can consist of a combination  of
       widgets	(for example, push buttons and a scroll bar), you can form the
       name string by adding widget class and name identifiers to the  string.
       For  further  information  about adding class and name identifiers, see
       X(1X).

       For dxpaint, the available class identifiers are:

       paint main_menu_bar paint_v_scroll_bar paint_h_scroll_bar

       For dxpaint*O, the available name identifier is:

       dxpaint

       The general resources available for dxpaint can be found in X(1X).

       Each specification included in the .Xdefaults file for the translations
       resource	 modifies a key setting for the editor that dxpaint uses.  For
       more information about key and mouse specifications in the
