Read

AuthorCafe, as good a Reader as an Editor.

pagetitle_line-1

Long html pages with footnotes and references are never easy to read. Not so in AuthorCafe’s Reader mode. See your edit-tracked content redacted, with best-of-class navigation. Export your project to a variety of formats. Get Page View, and see your content with headers, footers and notes, with all floats placed close to their citations.

Edit-tracked to redacted content

The Reader provides a clean view of the content, minus all those edit tracks and messages left by your collaborators. In AuthorCafe, as you move between Editor and Reader, you land in the same cursor position. Let’s say that you want to make a change to line 3 of paragraph 4 in section 5. Simply put your cursor there and exit Reader, and in the Editor, you will land in the precise position where you put your cursor.

Best-in-class navigation

Long-form scholarly content has never been easier to consume. The percentage indicator at the top tells you your exact position in the content as you scroll through it. When you select content, the indicator displays the entire range of the content. There is search and find, and a Navigation Manager on the right. Here you click through the citations (sections, figures, tables, references, equations, notes and glossary), and see the content one element at a time.

Read on tablets and smartphones

AuthorCafe defaults to the Read mode on the browser that your device supports. As you read, you can also chat with your collaborator. We will soon bring support for writing to tablets. For now, due to their limited screen size, smartphones will be limited to read only.

Page View in html

A patent-pending algorithm in AuthorCafe cookie cuts your long form content, assigns headers and footers automatically, and places cited elements like figures, tables and notes close to where they are cited. You can export/download the Page View in AuthorCafe as html and share it like you’d share a pdf.
