Abstract

The present apparatus relates to word processing systems having interactive display terminals, and more particularly to such systems with terminals having "character box displays", i.e., displays which form the alphanumeric characters through the generation of such characters in "character boxes" on the display and printers which print on a character by character basis. Most conventional word processing systems with interactive display terminals generally operate the display terminal as a character generation or "character box" display.
