This article describes a means of pasting text data from another application, with scaling to a user-specified rectangle. This function is achieved under the circumstances that a display device is able to display characters in an arbitrary size. This system consists of a Common Data Area (CDA) which is used to store data cut from another application, module A which takes in the text data, module B which specifies an area to which the text is to be pasted, module C which controls the text data and its related information taken into the document, module D which is the main routine and handles other data (native text data), and module E which displays/ prints the text in a required character size. First, another application puts text data in CDA.
