NSText to determine where to break lines, lay out portions of text, and so on. An
NSText object typically defines rectangular regions, but you can define exclusion paths inside the text container to create regions where text does not flow. You can also subclass to create text containers with nonrectangular regions, such as circular regions, regions with holes in them, or regions that flow alongside graphics.
Instances of the
NSText classes can be accessed from threads other than the main thread as long as the app guarantees access from only one thread at a time.
