Abstract

Automatic regeneration of object sets based on object set types and upon intermingling of different types of object sets facilitates later integrated information processing. Different types of information such as text, tables, graphics, etc., are defined as object sets. However, object sets are often intermingled. This will occur when an operator: 1) selects an object different from the one currently being edited; 2) selects a Get action and specifies an object different from the type selected before selection of Get; or 3) copies or moves an object from one object set into a different type of object or object set. When intermingling is called for, regeneration of object sets is in order to facilitate further integrated processing.
