Abstract

Different types of objects are easily and automatically created in a single document by selecting the object type from a CREATE pop-down panel and then pointing to a location in the document. In a document-editing environment, it is desirable to create other than text objects without having to leave the document-editing session. Most editors that allow different object types, such as graphs, spreadsheets, etc., to exist concurrently with text require that these objects be created in a separate application window, placed in a buffer, and then pasted into the document at the desired location. To use these editors, one must have a technical understanding of more than one application, and must learn a detailed method in order to create a document-containing text, graphics and spreadsheets.
