Abstract

A method is described to permit users to input a Text document generated by DisplayWrite 2-3.1 (DW2-3.1) and have its Two-level Index structure transformed into the acceptable format for a DisplayWrite (DW4) Composite document. On DW2-3.1 the Two-level Index structure of Text documents created by these Editors are the same. On DW4, Composite documents (i.e., Text and Non-text Objects) are created by the Editor. The Two-level Index structure of these documents is different from DW2-3.1 documents. (Image Omitted) Since several DW2-3.1 users obviously have Text documents that they would like to edit on DW4, then a simple method for achieving this task should be provided.
