QtikZ is a small application to assist in the creation of diagrams and drawings using the TikZ macros from the LaTeX package "pgf". It consists of a text editor pane in which the TikZ code for the drawing is edited and a preview pane showing the drawing as rendered by LaTeX. The preview pane can be updated in real-time. Common drawing tools, options and styles are available from the menus to assist the coding process.
This package contains the Qt version of the program.
TikZ is a user-friendly syntax layer for the PGF (portable graphics format) TeX macro package. Pictures can be created within a LaTeX document and included in the output using the most important TeX backend drivers including pdftex and dvips.
