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. A command bar is displayed at the top of the screen. Within the command bar are commands that the user can select. One of these commands is the CREATE action, and when this command is selected by the user, there is displayed in a pop-down panel several options from which the user can select depending on the type of data being created.
