[K12OSN] Tux Paint - OO Writer Code to link them needed.



I've been looking at this from a different view point.  We have been using Sunburst's EasyBook Deluxe.  I would love an Open Source Program that would do what EasyBook does but even better.  It would be a desktop publishing program.  Specs include:
1.) Allow the user to enter Title and Author to generate automatically a Cover and a Title Page
2.) Allow the user to enter Publisher/Copyright info with either a default edit or a customize edit to generate a page with that info.
3.)Layout options for each page that include picture boxes and text boxes that are re-sizable.  Layout suggestions include but not limited to:
a.)picture box on top, text box on bottom b.) text box on top, picture box on bottom c,)small picture in upper left hand corner, text area upper right hand corner and bottom d.) small picture in upper right hand corner, text area upper left hand corner and bottom e.) small picture in lower left hand corner, text are top and lower right hand corner, f.) small picture lower right hand corner, text area top and lower left hand area, g) picture box in middle of page, text area above and below.  Ideally, layout items would be accessed via a small icon illustrating the layout.
4.) automatically # pages (not counting Cover, Title Page, and publishing info)
5.) font/size choice like standard word processing program
6.) Bold, Italics, Underline like standard word processing program
7.) Option to import graphic from programs like TuxPaint and Gimp into the picture boxes
8.) Print or upload to website
 
Nice if we could get it:
9) formatting options to include half page books both left to right and top to bottom and printed in correct page order to make a book, and landscape orientation for full page books.
 
So, anyone want to take this on?
