Extracted a few hundred quotes from several books. Many are Theoretical Definitions.
Need to review them to try to extract some ideas of my own.
Best way for me is to scan through them, adding comments and highlighting key phrases and definitions.
Sample file attached.
Easiest application for me to achieve the editing portion of this work is Word.
Allows me a RANGE of definable styles, and sidebar comments.
Only problem is pagination. Each extraction of text is just a few sentences, at best a paragraph long. I’ve re-sized the pages to make them notecard-like.
Trouble is, there’s no way to get them to paginate like a deck of cards. What I mean is, frozen in one spot, with the succeeding pages and preceding pages just fulling the same area on the screen.
I’ve tried several work arounds - got some good ideas here: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29158467/Word-2016-Reading-View-Workaround-to-Enable-Editing.html
Even trying ALL of these, eventually, the pages start getting out of phase, and you have page breaks in the middle of the screen.
One WAS close! Print Preview Edit mode: it does the pagination perfectly, single stable window. But, you can’t…add comments nor style. Both of which are crucial as I, hopefully! :D, discover some new ideas within these existing ones.
So, here was my thinking - is there any way to write a Macro that will take either existing Page Down / Page Up keys and program them to always render the next page shown as flush against the top of the ruler? So that, clicking the keys, the pages changing never
go down AN INCREMENT, or A THIRD OF A PAGE, but always change to THE NEXT FULL PAGE, with the top of that page displayed as right against the ruler.
If not using the current Page Up / Page Down keys, any keystroke combination. Only so that, in hitting those keys, the pages go by centered, and sort of with the same movement as an electronic deck of cards - one basically repopulating the space of the other.
In Word before 2016 this exact behavior WAS available in Read Mode. Since 2016 Read Mode in Word suppresses editing.
