@mava @imagejan, sorry for the inconvenience. I was able to reproduce the error on Windows 7, I really don’t know what happened, I guess there must have been a mismatch between the launcher (that checks the Batik version shipping with FIJI) and the associated ScientiFig plugin. I just re-updated both and it now works (I mean ScientiFig launches fine). Please note however that ScientiFig is NOT FUNCTIONAL YET (since the last FIJI update). This is because some of the batik libraries used by SF are no longer shipping with FIJI (i.e. batik-codec and batik-transcoder, making the batik library incomplete).
@imagejan Without these libraries FIJI (and my soft) cannot open SVG files that contain Base64 embedded PNGs (here is an example of SVG that used to open fine with FIJI and cannot be read since the last update base64 SVG. I have to see with you what is the best way to proceed now, but first: is the suppression of two of the batik jars intended or just an error ? If it’s intended, I guess I should upload them with my software ? If I upload them, where do you recommend to place them ? In the ScientiFig plugin directory or in the FIJI “jars” directory where all the other Batik libraries belong ? Sorry Jan, for not updating the site, I just forgot (again), but that would not have changed much this time. I have started mavenizing the project for a better integration with another project of mine and this caused a lot of changes and issues, then when I finally got things working I forgot to file an update on github, I’ll do that soon.
@mava @imagejan Once the batik issue is sorted out, I can file an update and ScientiFig will be fully functional again.
@mava, please note that ScientiFig is deprecated, I have finalized another software (that is backwards compatible with ScientiFig) that still relies on the ScientiFig core but is much more user intuitive, better documented and more powerful (it supports among other things image stacks, channels, free placing of images, …). This software is called “EzFig” and it also has its own FIJI update site. I strongly recommend using this tool rather than ScientiFig if you are starting a new series of figures or if you have some free time. This is also an open source project and I’ll create a github page for it when I have time.
