About Plugins
for RedTitan EscapeE

Plugins are add-on applications for the RedTitan EscapeE conversion resources system. For example, Barcodes Plugin adds a bar code to the document.

Plugins work by being attached to a "field". To create a field, open the document in EscapeE and sweep out an area of the page then select New field... from the pop-up menu: see Defining fields and tags. If the area contains textual data this is automatically recovered by EscapeE as the "field value" which the Plugin will process. If the area is empty, the Plugin introduces a new feature to the document. See To attach a Plugin.
