Wandering Letters

This model illustrates how to build a word processor where each of the letters acts independently. Each letter knows only which letter comes before it. When the letters or margins are moved, the letters find their way back to their proper locations.

For detailed instructions on using the program, take a look at the info window from the Wandering Letters model.
