    2 Brief Characteristics

    This service unit defines the requirements for tools applied for the editing of results (text and graphic) in the sense of a uniform documentation with appropriate layout.
    During the development process it is possible to generate incomplete documentation. The possibility also exists of generating partial documentation (different level of detail, points of interest, etc.) by means of direct selection. These service units cannot only be used in connection with the development documentation but also to generate suitable manuals to be handed over to the end user. Furthermore, the service unit can be utilized for the generation of other documents (e. g. Status Reports).

    3 Requirements

    3.1 Requirements for Interfaces

    SUI04.I.1 Input interface to SUI05 - Editing of Texts It is possible to integrate text edited with SUI05 from the object management without further transformation.
    In this case, the term "Without Further Transformation" refers to: umlauts and tabulators are adopted or automatically converted, the formatting information remains stored.
    SUI04.I.2 Input interface to SUI06 - Editing of Graphics It is possible to integrate graphics edited with SUI06 from the object management without further transformation.

    3.2 Requirements for the Methods Support

    none

    3.3 Requirements for Functions

    SUI04.F.1.2.4 Connected paragraphs
    SUI04.F.1.2.4.1 Paragraph text It is possible to specify that all lines in a paragraph are only printed together on the same page.
    This way the effort required for page breaks can be considerably reduced.
    SUI04.F.1.2.4.2 Continuation paragraphs It is possible to specify that the succeeding paragraph is printed on the same page.
    SUI04.F.1.3 Document formatting
    SUI04.F.1.3.1 Page size It is possible to specify the size of a document page.
    SUI04.F.1.3.2 DIN A4 DIN A4 is supported in portrait format.
    SUI04.F.1.3.3 Layout
    SUI04.F.1.3.3.1 Multiple use In order to achieve a uniform layout it is possible to specify character and paragraph formatting separately from the actual document and-when generating a document-to refer to the predefined layout.
    SUI04.F.1.4 Later format change
    SUI04.F.1.4.1 Individual changes It is possible to change a specified formatting at a later time.
    This refers to character, paragraph, and document formatting.
    SUI04.F.1.4.2 Range It is possible to change the specified formatting of several connected characters or paragraphs simultaneously at a later time.
    SUI04.F.2 Page editing
    SUI04.F.2.1 Page break
    SUI04.F.2.1.1 Automatic Automatic paging is possible.
    SUI04.F.2.1.2 Forced It is possible to specify the position for a page break.
    SUI04.F.2.2 Headers/footers
    SUI04.F.2.2.1 Unrestricted layout Unrestricted layout for headers and footers is possible.
    SUI04.F.2.2.2 More than one line It is possible that headers and footers consist of more than one line.
    SUI04.F.2.2.3 Chapter-wise modification It is possible to change the content of headers and footers separately for individual chapters.
    SUI04.F.2.2.4 Integration of graphics It is possible that headers and footers include graphics.
    SUI04.F.2.3 Pagination
    SUI04.F.2.3.1 Automatic Automatic pagination with Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ...) is possible.
    Further pagination options are: roman (large and small), alphabetical.
    SUI04.F.2.3.2 In headers or footers It is possible to integrate the page numbers optionally in headers or footers.
    SUI04.F.2.3.3 Text before/after page number It is possible to specify preceding or trailing text and/or letters to the page number.
    SUI04.F.2.3.4 Optional begin The user has the possibility to define the first number for the pagination.
    SUI04.F.3 Document structuring
    SUI04.F.3.1 Previous structuring It is possible to generate a previous document structure into which text and graphics can be integrated at some later date.
    SUI04.F.3.2 Later structuring It is possible to generate the document structure at a later time.
    SUI04.F.3.3 Numbering It is possible to generate automatically the numbering of the document structure.
    SUI04.F.3.4 Arabic numbers The numbering of the structure is possible with Arabic numbers in dot notation (e. g. 1.2.1.4).
    SUI04.F.3.5 View change It is possible to switch between structure view and document view.
