Warning for of Carelessly Operation

      Disclosed is a method for giving an operator a warning in word
or image processing in case of carelessly deleting or changing a
specified region of an object such as a text or an image.

      In word or image processing, an operator often wants to delete
or change a particular object such as characters, a text, a paragraph
or an image.  When an operator wants to delete or change a particular
object, the operator specifies a region of the object to be deleted
or changed and deletes or changes it by an appropriate action.
However, the region of the object to be deleted or changed is not
always displayed on an effective screen because the operator may
scroll the screen after specifying the region of the object and prior
to deleting or changing it.  While the region of the object to be
deleted or changed is not displayed on the effective screen, the
operator may change his/her mind not to delete or change the object.
In such a situation, the operator may carelessly delete or change the
object.  In order to prevent an operator from carelessly deleting or
changing on object not being displayed, when the operator attempts to
delete or change a specified region of an object not being displayed
on the effective screen, the operator is given a warning from the
system.  The operator may optionally inhibit the system from issuing
such a warning.
