Text in a Chartist document may use any number of the fonts available from your printer. A Chartist document is one or more pages in size. The orientation of pages depends upon the settings for your printer. Within a Chartist document there may as many as 4000 symbols. A symbol is a polygonal shape with optional text or graphics inside it. The text inside a symbol may be in any of the fonts available from your printer. Multiple fonts may be used for the text inside a symbol. Lines may be drawn between symbols. The lines are routed automatically, with influence from the user as to symbol entry and exit points. Lines may be drawn with or without arrowheads, in different thicknesses, with solid, dotted or dashed pen styles, and with three different routing styles (straight, curved, square turns). When symbols are moved around the document, any associated lines are rerouted and redrawn as necessary. Lines may also be labeled with text.
