Comfort, Reliability and Speed

The Papyrus engine is so powerful, thousands of pages can be loaded, edited, and reformatted in the blink of an eye. Your manuscript, complete with footnotes and images, stays as it is – even when you switch between Mac and Windows. The software is compatible with all standard document types, such as .doc, .docx, and .rtf files.

Papyrus also takes fiddly formatting tasks off your hands. Various book-ready styles, a table of contents, index, and bibliography can be generated effortlessly.

Save Snippets On The Pinboard.

The dark-grey area around your page is the Papyrus Pinboard. This is where you can store anything you want to keep an eye on – such as images or sticky notes – or text snippets to keep for later.

Not sure if a paragraph is working, but want to hang on to it for now? Thinking of adding it to a later chapter, once you finally get there? Save it as a text snippet. Simply highlight the text and drag it onto the clipboard. When you’re ready to use it again, drag it right back into the manuscript again.

Grammar And Spelling: Checked.

Papyrus Author tidies up your writing with a built-in proofreader that offers helpful suggestions for improvement. In addition to catching typos, the software’s intelligent grammar analysis scans your syntax and punctuation, searching for misused commas and twisted sentence constructions.

Papyrus comes with spelling dictionaries for both American (US) and British (UK) English. To customize your dictionary, add words with a click. Turn on Papyrus Autocorrection to have spelling mistakes fixed automatically.

Papyrus Author proofreads your text swiftly and suggests corrections

To lighten your workload, Papyrus cleans up spacing and punctuation issues. When you cut and paste an excerpt, Papyrus automatically makes sure there’s no superfluous blank space left behind. And at the spot where you paste, the software will ensure there’s proper spacing on either side of the moved excerpt.

If punctuation marks become superfluous when text is moved, Papyrus automatically deletes unnecessary commas. This means you’ll never have an orphaned comma left in front of a period. (“,.”)
