How to make/Save a styk.
This part is relatively straight forward, first you can to start by selecting the 'Add Line' either by pressing 'L' or clicking this icon in the Tools pallete or right-click and drag:
After that you can simply drag a line to start your styk figure as shown here:
Now that you have your basic styk, you can add it to your Library to save it. Now in Stykz, to save a figure to the Library, all you need to do is right-mouse click in Windows (or Control-click on Mac), or press Control-L on Windows (Command-L on Mac), and choose 'Add to Library' and give it a name, as shown below:
How to change properties of a styk
Well in Stykz, there are 2 different types of selecting tools, the Select tool and the Subselect tool. To edit styk figures, we will use the Subselect tool.
If you start playing around a bit, you will notice when you click on a styk figure, you will notice a line turns red like this:
We will be calling this a 'segment'. Now you may notice the properties window will be changed to 'Segment Properties'. Now I will quickly run through what each property does.
Hidden tick box.
Quite simple, it hides the selected segments.
Static tick box.
Ohkay, this is a lil' more tricky. Well Dynamic means to move. Static means to stay still. Soooo when the box has not been ticked, you have a dynamic segment as opposed to when the box is ticked then it becomes a static, or in other words, it wont move. The node doesn't even appear.
Example of a static:
Notice how there is no node near the end of the segment.
Example of a dynamic:
Notice how there is a node at the end of the line.
How to fill using Polyfill tool.
This part is rather simple.
- First make your square.
- Now click the poly-fill tool and click your first corner node.
- Then follow the corners around until you see a nice lil fill.
- Choose the color of your fill and your done!
