AbstractA desktop publishing system is adapted to the interactive makeup and management of documents according to a model, in which model a document is made up of one or more kinds of components characterized by contents, name and properties, and which model represents a number of text columns. For each text column a corresponding component column is at least partially reproduced on the screen. For each component an indication is displayed in the respective component column, the indication being in the form of an identification symbol of this component to identify the start of the contents of the component at the level of said component in the text column.
