Opening Flames

Flames are stored in Xml files with .flame or .flam3 extensions. They can be opened in Fractorium from either the menu, dragging n dropping, or pasting. If more than one is opened at a time, it will be combined into a single file.

The drag n drop and paste methods can behave in two ways.

Append

This will append the new flames to end of the currently opened flames.

Replace

This will replace the current flames with the new ones. Be very careful doing this because it will overwrite whatever you are doing.

Menu

Click File | Open and select the flames you want to open. Be very careful doing this because it will overwrite whatever you are doing.

Drag n Drop

Drag and drop one or more files from the file explorer to replace the current flames. The default behavior is to append, so hold Ctrl when dropping to replace.

Paste

This method is most useful when collaborating with other artists. Copy the full text of a flame Xml and paste it into Fractorium with Ctrl + V to append to the current flames. Press Ctrl + Shift + V to replace them.
