Separation of form and function

The separation of form and function is part of the innovative layout concept that VIVA already invented for layout programs in 1990. In this way rectangles, circles, ellipses and Bézier objects may be displayed as graphic, image or text objects. Other layout programs (e.g. QuarkXPress® or Adobe® InDesign®) have adapted this concept, so that today millions of users benefit from the concept that was originally developed by VIVA.

Team Publishing

With the optional “Team Publishing” module, editing systems may be created simply and quickly in which several people work simultaneously on one document. In the development of the module, the requirements of both larger and smaller publishers were considered.

Footnotes and Endnotes

Create footnotes and endnotes by document or chapter, which may appear at the end of the page, at the end of the layout or at the end of the story. Define in which and over how many columns footnotes and endnotes are displayed.

Virtual Drives

With virtual drives you can ensure that users can only open documents or images from an ODBC or MySQL Database or a Web drive, and under certain conditions only save them there. As an additional option, all local drives may be deactivated.

Different Layouts

Define several layouts within a text frame and change the column layout of the text with different widths and gutters for each column.
Define and apply Layout Style Sheets with different text column layouts.

Text Frames, Rules & Backgrounds

Apply frames to single or a group of paragraphs, lines, words or characters. Apply rules to single or a group of paragraphs, lines, words or characters. Apply colored backgrounds for characters or whole paragraphs and/or define a frame. Embed graphic, text, table or image objects in the text and define the runaround behavior (one side, both sides, etc.)
