Text-Objects

In the text of an object you can use special characters and the ANSI character sets. Characters or series of characters can be printed in sub- or superscript. Text can contain lines, arrows and symbols. See Text Objects.

Field functions are especially coded strings in text fields. They can be used to update information in documents automatically. They can be used with table or text drawing objects.

Example: The file name is displayed as a text box in a UniPlot document page. If the document is saved under a new name the field is updated and displays the new name.

Solution: Create a text box and type the following text: @f{documentname}. Instead of the string @f{documentname} the file name is displayed, e.g. c:\test.ipw.
