The fragment is a part of a multiline text shape or a text paragraph. All text of a fragment is typeset equally. Fragments allow to contain pieces of text with different font, color or have a different decoration (bold, italic, underlined,...).

A fragment may refer to a paragraph throug a GoToAction. In this case the text may contain fields that will be replaced by properties of the referenced paragraph.
