True, Rev "COULD" be a worthy contender for anything involving text
processing, but not until they add a few of the very basic text editing
tools that end users need.
Individual Paragraphs in Fields
Centering Individual lines of Text
I just created a new BZ #3464 for this request
These three would open a whole host of new applications that could be
built with Rev.
These elementary text editing tools that simple word processors possess
are required for end users to be able to use certain types of text
based applications that can not be created with rev.
I'm not trying to create a new word processor, but text based
management systems are not realistically possible with Rev with it's
present abilities without a tremendous amount of work and then the end
users interface is not natural and intuative. End users need to modify
and format text in these elementary ways. By end users, I mean those
that use our software, not us programers.
With the present tool set, we can't easily create these types of
What other types of text based features would you all find valuable?
Tuviah posted on 9/16/04 in bugzilla 2194 that work was underway for
improved paragraph styles, but that has been over a year and a half
ago. Can anyone from Rev comment on the status of these enhancements?
