Abstract

The editor of choice concept allows a PC user to specify one of the following editors: DW3, DW4, or DW36. Therefore, no matter which editor is selected, the user is presented the "Work with Documents" display as the interface to the editor. The user will select (create, revise, view) for a particular document, and the next display will be the edit display for the host or the PC. This concept is based on the profile options display, the host program, and the PC program. In the Profile Options Display, the user selects one of the editors (DW4, DW36, or DW3). This display allows the user to specify the path information needed to execute the DW/4 or DW/3 program. The DW/4 user may also specify the default format for saving documents to be RFTDCA (architected revisable form text) or FFTDCA (architected final form text).
