Editor Note: Section 17.224 draw:text-areas


                 Key: OFFICE-1599

          Issue Type: Bug

Section 17.224 draw:text-areas

Ed. Note As defined, the attribute is inconsistent and incomplete. It starts by saying we define a list of text areas. Then it says what happens if a second text area is present. Then we define how to define a text area. As a string? So, we don't have a list, or at least no mechanism for one, possibly assume up to two text areas, and don't define what values define a text area. 

Sven Jacobi says:

textareas::= textareasequence? 

textareasequence ::= textarea ( ' '+ textareasequence )* 

textarea::= position ' '+ position ' '+ position ' '+ position 

position::= formula | modifier | number 

formula::= '?' name 

modifier::= '$' integer 

number::= sign? float | sign? integer 

float::= fractional exponent? | integer exponent 

fractional::= integer? '.' integer | integer '.' 

exponent::= ( 'e' | 'E' ) sign? integer 

sign::= '+'| '-' 

integer::= [0-9]+ 

name ::= [^ ]+ 

Patrick: Yes, but the prose requires:

"If a second text area is available it is used for vertical text." 

Noting that the first text area being for horizontal text is only by implication. 

Nor it is clear how more than two areas (assuming the regex were extended to include what is said in the prose) are to be positioned. 

If this is meant to simply specify the position of one or more text areas in some defined coordinate space (represented by a <draw:enhanced-geometry> element) then why don't we simply say that? 

Sven Jacobi further replies: 

"If text in a shape is drawn and there is no draw:text-areas element, then entire area of the shape is used. 

If the draw:text-areas element is available, then with one exception the first text area is used. And this is the 

exception, if the text is verical and if a second text area is available, the second text area is used. 

I am not sure if it is sensible do to specify a limitation of 2 rectangles, I thought it is sufficient without."
