NAME
       kxstitch	- cross	stitch pattern creator and editor by KDE

SYNOPSIS
       kxstitch	[file]

DESCRIPTION
       KXStitch	is a program that lets you create cross	stitch patterns	and
       charts. Patterns	can be created from scratch on a user defined size of
       grid, which can be enlarged or reduced in size as your pattern
       progresses. Alternatively you can import	images from many graphics
       formats which will allow	you to reduce the number of colors and to
       restrict	the conversion to full stitches	or optionally use fractional
       stitches. You may also use an image as a	background. These imported
       images can then be modified using the supplied tools to produce your
       final design.

       There are many tools to aid designing your pattern, from	open and
       filled rectangles and ellipses, filled polygons and lines and
       backstitching. Additionally cut,	copy and paste can be used to
       duplicate selected areas. Selected areas	can also be rotated 90,	180
       and 270 degrees anti clockwise, or mirrored horizontally	or vertically.

       There is	also a pattern library that can	be used	to store small and not
       so small	portions of patterns that can then be reused in	other
       patterns. The patterns in these libraries are stored in a hierarchical
       list that makes it easy to sort and navigate them to find the ones you
       want. These pattern libraries can also be used as alphabets by
       assigning a character to	each one. By using the Alphabet	tool, each key
       press is	searched for in	the current library and	if present, the
       associated pattern will be inserted in the pattern.

       When your ready,	you can	print out your design in several formats.
       There are options to print out cover sheets, instructions and a floss
       key including amount of thread used and number of stitches.

ARGUMENTS
