FlexMax is a Stick Figure Drawing Tool for yoga teachers to create posture images.
FlexMax originated from the needs of Yoga teachers. Time and again they need images showing body postures (Asanas)
for course scripts, student handouts, yoga class minutes, or publications.
Shooting photographs is expensive. Producing good drawings is difficult. CDs with lots of Asana images are available
on the market, but as a rule, they don't contain exactly what is needed in a particular context.
FlexMax solves this problem. It is the perfect tool for producing line-drawings of body postures. FlexMax is based
on an Asana representation scheme used by T.K.V. Desikachar and other yoga teachers. This representation scheme
combines good readability with easy drawing.

Tips and Tricks:
- Use the Mouse Wheel
Working with FlexMax is much more efficient when you use the mouse wheel for turning the parts of a figure. And if your mouse should not have a wheel - you can buy a wheel mouse for little money in any computer shop.
- Set Startup Figure
You can use a figure of your liking as the startup figure. In FlexMax, click on your figure, then in the right window part click on Figure... and select Use this object as template for new ones. Now whenever you start FlexMax, or whenever you select New from the Figure menu, this figure will be shown. Thus you can e.g. use a startup figure which already has your preferred grayscale and line widht. Or, if you are working on a series of variants to a base position, select the base position for startup.
