I am at present in my client's office for the onsite French to English translation of drawings. The drawings are opened in Vis Mockup Version 5.1 and I find the options to be quite awsome.

For example, an A0 drawing is reduced and shown in the computer screen and by using the lens tool, I can select any area and magnify it.

Then I can select text insertion tool and draw a box by the side of the original French entry. A text editor box is opened and I can just type the translation and click OK. The translation comes beautifully and aesthetically placed beside the original. At the end of the day, you have bilingual drawing.

Now the problems:

1. How do I save what I have done? (such as ctrl+S)
2. How do I do translation when the original is in vertical direction and any inclined directioon for that matter?
3. Is there any erasure tool, where I can rub out mistakes and retype?
Presently I have to cover the earlier box with a new one.
