Abstract

Margin-defining operations are avoided by using existing margin attributes when flowing text around graphics. Information types such as text, graphics, tables, etc., are defined as object sets, and attributes are used to define length, margins, etc. Since margins are already defined for graphics, there is no need to define margins for text when the text is to be flowed around the graphics. By using existing margins, operator time and attention are reduced.
