[REBOL] Re: PDF-Maker questions

Hello Robert! On 01-Feb-02, you wrote: RM> 1. How are line breaks done inside a textbox? I can see the RM> use of 'newline, 'p and 'P 'p ends the current paragraph (as any alignment command). 'newline forces a "line wrap", exactly as if the text was too big to fit the current line. RM> 2. Is it correct that textboxes are not positioned one after RM> the other if no position is given?

If 2 is true: How can I find out how big a layouted RM> textbox will be? I have to do some textbox positioning You give it a size. :) (There's no way to know how much space the text will use, however. So you'll have big problems trying to guess where to break pages... Maybe I should implement that asap...) RM> 4. I read the docs to pdf-maker but saw that you use a lot RM> more words in pdf-maker-dor.r Would it be possible to get a RM> short description for these things? Yes, just ask me. :)) Feel free to send me any question you have etc. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila --
