Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This patent application is a continuation-in-part application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/955,622 entitled “Method, System, And Computer-Readable Medium For Creating, Inserting, And Reusing Complex Document Parts In An Electronic Document,” the disclosure of which is expressly incorporated herein, in its entirety, by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Modern word processors enable a user to readily create electronic documents. Many modern word processors include templates to facilitate the insertion of “document parts” which are typical structural elements found in a variety of documents. These typical structural elements include such features as cover pages, headers and footers, and the like. A user of a word processing application program typically selects a desired document part from a template of similarly styled parts created by a template author and then inserts the selected document part in the document. Unfortunately, the creation and insertion of document parts in modern word processors presents a number of drawbacks to both the template author as well as the end user.
  • One drawback associated with the creation of document part templates for use in modern word processors is that the template author generally must undergo the time consuming task of creating each document part from scratch utilizing various graphical software tools to design and format each document part. One drawback associated with the insertion of document parts in a document by an end user is that the end user must depend on template authors to design suitable document parts for insertion (i.e., the typical end user lacks the design skill require to design or modify existing document parts). Another drawback associated with the insertion of document parts by an end user is that the end user must typically perform a series of steps so that the document part will fit the size and layout of the document in which it is inserted. For instance, to insert a cover page a user may perform one or more of the following time-consuming steps: 1. Insert a page break at the top of the document; 2. Center the test vertically in the page by using empty paragraph markers so that the title is displayed correctly; 3. Increase the font size of the title; 4. Add empty space to push text to the bottom of the page where the author's name and date will be displayed; 5. Right align the text and make it smaller.
  • It is with respect to these considerations and others that the various embodiments of the present invention have been made.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It should further be appreciated that the various aspects of the present invention are not limited to word processing application programs but may also utilize other application programs which are capable of processing text.
  • In conjunction with the editing of a word processing document, the word processing application program 10 provides functionality for allowing a user to create, insert, and reuse “document parts” into various locations in the document 24. As defined herein, document parts are preformatted structural elements or layouts which add structure to documents including, but not limited to, the following types and categories: cover pages, mathematical equations, indexes and tables (e.g., Table of Contents, Table of Figures, and Table of Authorities), page headers and footers, pages and sections (e.g., blank pages and two-column pages), personal contact information (e.g., name and address information), images, textboxes, AutoText, and watermarks. The document parts utilized by the word processing application program 40 may be stored in a glossary document 28 in an extensible markup language (“XML”) format. As is understood by those skilled in the art, XML is a standard format for communicating data. In the XML data format, a schema is used to provide XML data with a set of grammatical and data type rules governing the types and structure of data that may be communicated.
  • It will be appreciated that in addition to the categories discussed above, the glossary document 28 may also be used to create document parts and modify existing document parts. It will be appreciated that the document parts discussed above may also belong to a template designed by a professional template designer including customized document parts for use in an organization. The structure of the glossary document 28 will be discussed in greater detail with respect to FIG. 2, below.
  • Referring now to FIG. 2, a structure of an XML schema 200 used in the glossary document 28 will now be described. The XML schema 200 includes a glossaryDocument element 202. The glossaryDocument element 202 serves as a container document for all document parts in the glossary document and includes the child elements DocumentProperties 204, fonts 206, lists 208, styles 210, docPr (i.e., document properties) 212, types 214, and dataBoundXmlDoms 248. Each of these child elements will be described in greater detail below.
  • The DocumentProperties element 204 contains all of the properties used by documents created in the word processing application program 10. The fonts element 206 contains all of the fonts used by all of the document parts in the glossary document 28. The lists element 208 contains all of the lists used by all of the document parts in the glossary document 28. The styles element 210 contains all of the styles used by all of the document parts in the glossary document 28. The docPr element 212 contains the properties for the glossary document 28. The types element 214 contains all document parts types along with their respective categories and parts in the glossary document 28 or in a document parts template. For instance, the types element 214 may contain document part types including, but not limited to: Cover Pages, Headers (e.g., Page Numbers), Footers (e.g., Page Numbers), Letter AutoText, General AutoText, Personal Information, Tables, Textboxes, and Equations.
  • The types element 214 also includes a type element 216 which is a container for one type of document part. For instance, the type element 216 for Cover Pages may include cover page document parts such as academic cover pages, basic cover pages, etc. The type element 216 includes a name element 218 which contains the name for the type element 216. The name element 218 includes the attribute “val” for identifying the document part type. An illustrative syntax for the name element 218 is:
  • <name val=“Cover Pages”/>. If the document part type is a “built-in” type (i.e., a default document part type stored in the word processing application program 10), the name element 218 will display the default document part type name regardless of the name stored in the glossary document 28. The type element 216 also includes an id element 220 which contains the id of a built-in document part type. The id element 220 includes the attribute “val” for displaying the id for a document part type. An illustrative syntax for the id element 220 is: <id val=“{1B748C4B-8173-4380-8470-DAD7035CEFA8}”/>. The type element 216 also includes a categories element 222 which contains all document parts categories under the type, with their respective parts. For instance, the categories element 222 may contain a number of categories for the Letter AutoText type including, but not limited to: Attention Line, Closing, Mailing Instructions, Reference Line, Salutation, Subject Line, and Address Placeholders.
  • The categories element 222 also includes a category element 224 which is a container for one category of document part. The category element 224 includes a name element 226 which contains the name for the category element 224. The name element 226 includes the attribute “val” for identifying the category. If the document part type is a “built-in” category (i.e., a default document part category stored in the word processing application program 10), the name element 218 will display the default document part category name regardless of the name stored in the glossary document 28. The category element 224 also includes an id element 228 which contains the id of a built-in document part category. The id element 228 includes the attribute “val” for displaying the id for a document part category.
  • The category element 222 also includes a docParts element 230 which contains all of the document parts under a category. The docParts element 230 may also serve as a container for all of the document parts in a template. The docParts element 230 includes a docPart element 232 which contains a single document part. The docPart element 232 includes a docPartPr element 234 which is a container for all of the properties for the document part and a docPartBody element 246 which is a container for the content of the document part itself. The docPartPr element 234 includes several child elements which will be described in detail below.
  • The docPartPr element 234 includes an id element 236 for the document part and a name element 238 which contains the name for the docPart element 232. The name element 238 includes the attribute “val” for identifying the document part. An illustrative syntax for the name element 238 is: <name val=“Cover Page 1”/>. The docPartPr element 234 also includes a description element 240 for containing a description of the document part. The description element 240 includes the attribute “val” for describing the document part. An illustrative syntax for the description element 240 is: <description val=“Cover with centered title and name”/>. The docPartPr element 234 also includes a pStyle element 242 which contains the style of the document part. The pStyle element 242 includes the attribute “val” for identifying the style of the document part. An illustrative syntax for the pStyle element 242 is: <pStyle val=“Title”/>. The docPartPr element 234 also includes an insertOptions element 244 which contains insertion options for the document part. The insertion options include allowing only content, paragraphs, pages, or sections to be inserted in the document part. An illustrative syntax for the insertOptions element 244 is: <insertOptions>content</insertOptions>.
  • Referring now to FIG. 3, an illustrative routine 300 will be described illustrating a process for utilizing the XML schema in the glossary document 28 to define document parts for use in an electronic document. It should be appreciated that although the embodiments of the invention described herein are presented in the context of the word processing application program 10, the invention may be utilized in other types of application programs that support text processing.
  • When reading the discussion of the routines presented herein, it should be appreciated that the logical operations of various embodiments of the present invention are implemented (1) as a sequence of computer implemented acts or program modules running on a computing system and/or (2) as interconnected machine logic circuits or circuit modules within the computing system. The implementation is a matter of choice dependent on the performance requirements of the computing system implementing the invention. Accordingly, the logical operations illustrated in FIG. 3, and making up the embodiments of the present invention described herein are referred to variously as operations, structural devices, acts or modules. It will be recognized by one skilled in the art that these operations, structural devices, acts and modules may be implemented in software, in firmware, in special purpose digital logic, and any combination thereof without deviating from the spirit and scope of the present invention as recited within the claims set forth herein.
  • Referring now to FIG. 3, the routine 300 begins at operation 310, wherein a user opens the glossary document 28 to access the schema containing the document part elements discussed above in FIG. 2. In particular, the glossary document 28 may be opened in the word processing application program 10 view and edit the schema elements corresponding to document parts. It will be appreciated that in alternative embodiment of the invention, the schema or portions thereof may be obtained from a third party source and opened using a conventional text editor. In this manner, document parts may be edited and/or created without having to load the word processing application program 10.
  • The routine 300 continues from operation 310 at operation 320 where the global formatting element in the schema receives formatting for all of the document parts to be defined. For instance, a user may assign a font to the fonts element 206 so that a consistent font is applied to each document part defined in the schema. The routine 300 continues from operation 320 at operation 330 where the types element 214 receives one or more document types to be defined in the schema. In particular, a user may enter the types (e.g., Cover Pages, Headers, Footers, etc.) for each document part to be defined.
  • The routine 300 continues from operation 330 at operation 340 where the categories element 222 receives one or more categories for the document part types defined at operation 330. In particular, the categories element 222 allows a user to assign document types to categories. For instance, a user may assign a “Date and Time” category to the General AutoText document type.
  • The routine 300 continues from operation 340 at operation 350 where the DocPartPr element 234 receives document part properties for a document part. In particular a user defines a single document part by navigating to the DocPartPr element 234 and entering user values in the name element 238 to name the document part, the description element 240 to describe the document part, the pStyle element 242 to assign a style to the document part, and the insertOptions element 244 to define the type of content which may be inserted into the document part. The routine 300 continues from operation 350 at operation 360 where the docPartBody element 246 receives content (e.g., text) for the defined document part. In particular, the user may enter the content for the document part in the docPartBody element 246.
  • The routine 300 continues from operation 360 at operation 370 where the user decides if there are more document parts to be defined in the schema. If there are more document parts to be defined, the routine 300 returns to operation 350. If there are no more document parts to be defined, then the routine 300 then ends.
  • Based on the foregoing, it should be appreciated that the various embodiments of the invention include a method and apparatus for utilizing an extensible markup language schema to define document parts for use in an electronic document. It will be appreciated that by using the schema disclosed herein has a number of advantages over a user interface for defining document parts in an electronic document. One advantage is that the schema allows a user a more flexible way to define document parts without using the user interface. Another advantage is that utilization of the schema also enables a user to more efficiently add document parts to a collection or to create multiple templates by simply opening a file and inserting the appropriate XML directly into a glossary document.
  • The above specification, examples and data provide a complete description of the manufacture and use of the composition of the invention. Since many embodiments of the invention can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention, the invention resides in the claims hereinafter appended.
