Ease of Use Edit
- tabbed editing
Advanced Layout Control Edit
In Nvu, it is easy to create and modify complex layout. For editing tables, there is a ruler for you to easily adjust the width and height of cells. When you are on a cell, there are two floating controls that allow you to easily insert or delete a row or column.
Creating a non-table-based layout is relatively easy. You can make any text block into a layer and control its position and z-index. You cannot change its position in the text-flow without demoting it and promoting it again.
