What are morphs?
Last updated at 4:02 pm UTC on 4 October 1999

  1. Morphs are objects with a graphical representation. Morph in Greek means shape or form.
  2. Any morph can have component morphs (called submorphs).
  3. A morph with submorphs is called a composite morph.
  4. Any morph may be grabbed, moved, rotated, duplicated, resized or deleted.
  5. All morphs are contained within one topmost morph - the WorldMorph.
  6. Morphs support drag and drop direct manipulation.
  7. The cursor is represented by the HandMorph.
