Abstract

A program is disclosed which enables a user to input Double Byte Character Set (DBCS) language, that enables a user to specify fonts for DBCS characters and for Single Byte Character Set (SBCS) characters separately, and which also enables a user to specify character point (size of character) for DBCS characters and for SBCS characters separately.

This text was extracted from an ASCII text file.

Changing of Character Points of Text in Synchronization with Font
Change

      A program is disclosed which enables a user to input Double
Byte Character Set (DBCS) language, that enables a user to specify
fonts for DBCS characters and for Single Byte Character Set (SBCS)
characters separately, and which also enables a user to specify
character point (size of character) for DBCS characters and for SBCS
characters separately.

The program consists of the following steps:
  1.  The program provides the capability for a user to change font
and
       character point of inputted text data.
  2.  A user can specify what font is to be used for newly entered
DBCS
       characters, what font is to be used for newly entered SBCS
       characters, what character point is to be used for newly
entered
       DBCS characters, and what character point is to be used for
newly
       entered SBCS characters via the "Text property" dialog panel.
  3.  A user can specify "Same as DBCS font/point" option instead of
       specifying a certain font/point for the newly inputted SBCS
       characters.
  4.  According to whether a character entered is DBCS or SBCS, the
       character is processed using a specified font and point.

      When a character is entered via ZENKAKU mode, that character is
handled as a DBCS character, and font and point assigned for DBCS are
used to format, display, and print the character.  When a cha...
