Abstract

Disclosed is an editing support system which overlays texts after editing on texts before editing. With this system, text before and after editing are printed in different colors in contrast. Using color filters which are transparent for one of colors used in printing, editors can compare texts and layouts before and after editing easily. With this system, editors can compare not only texts but also layouts on a paper.

Editing Support System using Color Contrast and Color Filters

      Disclosed is an editing support system which overlays texts
after editing on texts before editing.  With this system, text before
and after editing are printed in different colors in contrast.  Using
color filters which are transparent for one of colors used in
printing, editors can compare texts and layouts before and after
editing easily.  With this system, editors can compare not only texts
but also layouts on a paper.

      This system uses three colors for the three part of a document
under editing.  For example, it uses black to print texts which are
not affected by editing, green to print texts before editing which
are affected by editing, and red to print texts after editing which
are affected by editing.  If a text is added, it is printed only in
green.  If a text is deleted, it is printed only in red.  If a text
is moved, it is printed in green and red in different positions.
Fig.1 shows a sample output of this system.  (To show the concept of
the system, Figures are printed in black and white in this document.)

      If editors use a color filter which is transparent for green,
texts printed in black or red are visible.  The editor can see texts
and layout before editing in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get).
Fig. 2 shows this image.  If editors use a color filter which is
transparent for red, texts printed in black or green are visible.
