word processing

Text processing comprises text-oriented programs, editors and systems with which texts can be created, edited, structured, designed and output in dialog with the computer.

Text creation can be done by input from the keyboard, as well as by transferring a text file from a memory or by scanning. Text editing includes editing and correcting writing as well as text preparation. This includes all possibilities of text manipulation such as cutting, copying and pasting by means of an editor, the use of design elements for page layout with all typographic features such as determining the page format, the choice of font and font size, font alignment, highlighting, etc.
