Scribble, Highlight, and E-post-its on Articles!

Post by I-MAG » Thu Oct 19, 2006 9:08 pm

Raison d'etre:
One of the arguments the apponents of e-publishing raise is that in e-publishing there is no possibility to:

1- scribble,
2- underline words,
3- highlight importatnt parts,
4- and add post-it notes to write personal notes on what you read.

This is a valid observation, and little has been done to overcome it.

So, I suugest that this feature is made available to members (or a group of them so that the server does not get loaded).


Examples:
1- Adobe Professional Edition allows you to add notes, underline, highlight ...etc. I love it. But this is PDF not a web-based thing.


2- A living example from websites is this :

Watch the demo:
http://www.questia.com/ginger/indexTools.jsp
Go to the tool menu in the right upper corner of the flash, then choose "tool demo" from the middle menu, and choose "highlight" and "add note" and watch them.



Saving:
- These could be saved in a table linked to each members profile. And the person can checks his/her notes list and the articles to which s/he added hlighlights or underlines.

- The admin can choose to limit this feature to some mebers only if it takes much of the server's capacity.
