1. The text wrapping is untouched and original in this doc engine. A separate Letter wrapping is possible.
2. Microsoft Word didn't save any paper format in a (.doc) file. It only exists as column width. That's all.
The height of a doc is open ended too. So a doc with 120 pages is a looooong data stream and 30000 pixels heigh.
The displaying tool must separate every page itself with a more or less huge algorithm and without knowing the paper size.
I have presumed 842 x 595 pixels per page.
So, will you be modifying your/this program's code to get it to load/save an already prepared .doc file with ALL the text/characters, and ideally any/all image data, that were in it originally, as there's no point in creating a program that cannot handle any imported document correctly?
Also, having an option to save the text (copy) from a document would be an advantage, rather than just allowing it to be viewed, and/or then saved as a PDF, where some of the data can be extracted (copy) as an external feature of VPDF or APDF or a screen grabber or whatever program might be advantageous to do what your program might feature to save having to carry out these additional, and probably would be seen as somewhat unnecessary stages.
I say that, because if you make a program capable of viewing an "alien" format then surely all the possible editing/saving features should be built into it, to take advantage of the fact that it is now viewable/saveable within MorphOS, to transfer the data to a MorphOS application to utilise the data/document?
(I have taken the liberty of amending your text so it reads as I believe you intended it to be read, AFAIK. Also, while I know, and appreciate, your first language is obviously Deutsch/German I feel it would be better for me, and maybe others, to read it without stumbling over small errors/spelling mistakes, which are completely understandable - I also cut down the reply to the significant points, removing my previous quotes, for brevity)
** - v1.1 is supposedly now released, on MorphOS Storage, and Aminet, but checking the version information indicates it's still v1.0, even though the WMF.library is included. This program seems to be BubbleDoc in another form, with similar issues/limitations to BubbleDoc
