# tkz-euclide — for euclidan geometry

Release 3.0§c 2020/04/06

## Description

`tkz-euclide`

is a package (latex) which allows you to draw two-dimensional geometric figures, in other words to create figures of Euclidean geometry. It uses a Cartesian coordinate system orthogonal provided by the `tkz-base`

package as well as tools to define the unique coordinates of points and to manipulate them. The idea is to allow you to follow step by step a construction that would be done by hand as naturally as possible.

## Licence

The scontents package may be modified and distributed under the terms and conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License, version 1.3c or greater.

## Requirements

The package compiles with utf8, pdflatex and lualatex, loads and depends on updated versions of:

## Installation

The package `tkz-eculide`

is present in TeXLive and MiKTeX, use the package manager to install.

You can experiment with the `tkz-euclide`

package by placing all of the distribution files in the directory containing your current tex file.

The different files must be moved into the different directories in your installation `TDS`

tree or in your `TEXMFHOME`

:

doc/cheatsheet_euclide_2.pdf -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/cheatsheet_euclide_2.pdf doc/cheatsheet_euclide_1.pdf -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/cheatsheet_euclide_1.pdf doc/Euclidean_geometry.pdf -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/Euclidean_geometry.pdf doc/TKZdoc-euclide.pdf -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/TKZdoc-euclide.pdf doc/README.md -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/README.md doc/examples/*.* -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/examples/*.* doc/sourcedoc/*.* -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-euclide/sourcedoc/*.* code/*.* -> TDS:tex/latex/tkz-euclide/*.*

## How to use it

To use the package `tkz-euclide`

, place the following lines in the preamble of your LaTeX document:

\usepackage{tkz-euclide}

The line `\usetkzobj{all}`

is no longer required with `tkz-euclide`

but you can use it with other packages.

If you use the `xcolor`

package, load that package before `tkz-euclide`

to avoid package conflicts.

## Documentation

Documentation for `tkz-euclide`

is available on `CTAN`

. You have two cheatsheets about tkz-euclide in the archive. Use `texdoc tkz-euclide`

.

## Examples

All examples given in documentation will be stored on `CTAN`

as standalone files, ready for compilation. You can use the main.tex file to load and compile an example.

The archive contains a litle document about Euclidean Geometry with four examples.

Other examples, en français, are on my site: http://altermundus.fr

## Compatibility

The new version of `tkz-euclide`

is *not* fully compatible with the version 1.16 but the differences are minor.
