Chapter�22.�KOffice Components Overview

Keep in mind that all these components can integrate very well into each other. So basically a spreadsheet can contain anything from charts to presentations, reports and even text documents. Likewise almost any component can contain almost any other.


The textprocessing component, but it includes many aspects of a desktop publishing application. This creates a rather unique mixture of features that makes interesting layouts easily possible.


The spreadsheet component. KSpread is a scriptable spreadsheet program which provides both table-oriented sheets and support for complex mathematical formulas and statistics. Features include Hyperlinks, cell data validity checking with configurable warnings/actions, scripting and specific cell customization.


The presentation component. It can be used to create on-screen presentations or to design and print transparencies. Features include embedding images and clip-art, easy working with objects, and the ability to make HTML or XML slideshows.


The flowcharting and diagramming component. Additional stencil sets can be used for custom needs, there is a plugin framework for additional functionality, and even UML diagrams are possible.


A vector-drawing application.


The painting and image manipulation component. Krita contains both ease-of-use, fun features like guided painting, as well as high-end features like support for 16-bit images, CMYK and even OpenEXR HDR images.


The appropriate component for creating business reports, which is accomplished with an advanced designer that it has. Features include report printing in postscript, full control of fonts, colors, text alignment and wrapping, as well as open report definition files (with the layout stored as XML).


The component for project management, allowing for the planning and scheduling of various projects.


The data management component. It can be used for creating database schemas, inserting data, performing queries, and processing data. Forms can be created to provide a custom interface to your data. All database objects -- tables, queries and forms -- are stored in the database, making it easy to share data and database design.


The chart drawing component; it is used to embed charts into one of the other KOffice components. It's easy to use, highly customizable allowing all of the parameters to be changed, and has a flexible layout.


A formula editor which provides the basic input facilities and support functionality that appears in other KOffice applications. Some of its features include intelligent cursor management, multi-level undo support and advanced syntax highlighting.
