|It would be very helpful if we had OOo terminology, especially OOo Draw terminology, documented in terms of set theory. The document would tell us things like,
"All freeform lines are shapes."
"All shapes are graphics."
"All graphics are objects."
"All text boxes are graphics." Or are they?
Are all objects graphics? I haven't a clue.
I have been using OpenOffice.org for a long time, and, to this day, I don't know the exact meaning of the term "object." All I see are example after example until my eyes sort of start to cross.
Does anybody know if there is a document with the OOo Draw terms, described in set theory? If not, perhaps some kind soul who knows the material could create one.
