Line region

Line region

The Line Regions are located within a Text Region, and can be described as polygons, encasing all of the handwritten text in a line. As they are not of immediate importance to the transcribing process, Line Regions should not be corrected. If you would like to change something at the line layout of your document please always do that on Baseline-level. The baseline should run along the bottom of the text line, the letters should sit on it and the descenders go below. Line Regions will be adapted automatically, when you change something at baseline level. There will be a pop-up asking you, if you would like to change the parent line as well, please confirm this.
