Getting Started

There you are...

Translation

To add translated pages.

New pages

To add an additional page just call the page by editing the address in your browser (without ending '/' ). You'll then see a page telling you that this page currently doesn't exist and you can click on "Create" at the top menu. If you don't feel comfortable doing changes in the mains pages, you can start by submitting your changes in the "Discussion" pages ( Alt⇧ ShiftT).

Projects

(in progress) 2015 --> - Rewrite for 1.x series

In order to update the documentation to follow the 1.0 release, a major revision of the documentation is needed.

In some cases, draft work has already been done in the Talk section of the pages.

According the synfigstudio 1.0 single window (and other changes) UI a global review and update of the screenshots must also be done...see howto in next paragraph.

The documentation can be now rewritten directly on the Pages (It's no longer necessary to use the Talk Pages nor the "Rewrite preparation for 0.65" has modification comment has suggested previously)

Where to start

How to do the Screenshots

For complete recommendations on screenshot creation, see the synfig studio documentation : Screen Shots

  • Please make screenshots in default light theme.
  • Please keep image width under ~1000px.
  • Use generic file notation : image_file_name_current.png. Example File:Render_settings_Dialog_current.png ‎used in Render_dialog (to take advantage of the upgrade image system)

Terminology

It's possible (and certain) that around the corners, some terminologies have been updated with all the GUI's recent changes. Some parts of the documentation may not reflect all the changes. If you find some... feel free to correct them in wiki original page (+ your native language?) ! (and add it to this list for helping the translation into other languages)

(todo) 2015 --> - Wikification of Genete's stuff

A lot of documentation resources have been produced by Genete. They are hosted in the cloud. Some of it should be hosted in the wiki, in the dev, or tutorial or .... sections.

please, log here any progress to avoid duplicate work

(done) 2014-2015 - Rewrite preparation for future release 1.0

The documentation can be now rewritten directly on the Page. It's no longer necessary to use the Talk Pages nor the "Rewrite preparation for 0.65" has modification comment has suggested previously.

Have a look at what has already been initiated : http://wiki.synfig.org/wiki/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&profile=advanced&search=rewrite+0.65&fulltext=Search&ns0=1&ns1=1&profile=advanced

According the synfigstudio 1.0 single window (and other changes) UI a global review and update of the screenshots must be done...

(No more useful) Write inside Talk:Pages the new feature that will be available in synfig 1.0 in order to not do visible modification until next release is out.

(No more useful) Suggested work-flow : use "Rewrite preparation for 0.65" has modification comment, and add "Rewrite preparation for 0.65" sentence inside the Talk Page (to get an easy way to retrieve all the pages who need to be updated once 1.0 will be out)

(in progress) 2013 ---> - Terminology rewrite sprint

Have a look in the Forum [1] for more information.
