Frame Orientated Layout

Tempus-Word NG is based on a frame orientated layout similar to DTP programs. But contrasted to the usual method of “draw frame - connect frames - flow text” you create a general frame layout that is used automatically during text input. The positions of all layed-out frames is repeated automatically on all pages with this layout. You can create as many layouts as you want. Every layout contains individual definitions for left and right pages.

Free frames offer the ability to vary the layout. These frames are anchored “logically” within the document. If you add text, these elements are re-formatted automatically in such a way that context and relative placement to the accompanying text is kept. This saves you time if you change the length of the main text as there is no need to reorganize frames by hand, as is usually necessary in DTP applications.
