Abstract

A real-time multiple data editor provides integration of all data on a single page in relation to each other in dynamic editable form. The page may contain both text and non-text object sets including images, graphics, tables, annotations, and handwriting. Text, tables and graphic object sets have a space before and space after attribute which allows the user to determine the amount of spacing between each object as each object is placed on the page. The user defines the amount of space before and/or after the object in either inches or millimeters. The editor also provides the user the multiple fonts. Objects which consist of text character data can change the font attribute of that object. The size, style, and design of the selected font determine the amount of space allocated on the page for each character.
