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. When editing a long document, it is necessary to use a search function in order to go to points in the document that need to be changed. This is often a tedious and time consuming process. The solution to this problem is to allow the user to specify a named object or object type in the "GO TO" function. In the case of a named object, the user can go to a named table, picture, paragraph, etc.
