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. Object sets may be moved into positions on a page such that more than one object set is occupying a single displayable area on the page. The editor also supports footnoting. The types of footnote available include footnotes at the bottom of the page or footnotes at the end of the document. Currently, a footnote consists of textual data only. There are times when a user desires to put graphic information in a footnote. A typical example would be the use of mathematical symbols.
