Release Notes – Annotate PRO Web Editor

Did you know you can edit your Annotate PRO library directly from a web browser? You don’t have to be ‘inside’ Microsoft Word 2016 or the Google Chrome Extension.

The link is: You can always reach it from the Edit Your Library choice in the Annotate PRO menu on our home page.

Just remember to REFRESH Annotate PRO in Word or Google Chrome:

  1. Word 2016:
    1. Click the Refresh button on the Insert taskpane. This will pull down any changes from the server and update your search box, favorites buttons etc.
  2. Chrome Extension:
    1. Visit the Edit page, choose a Comment Group, and click Update Comment Library. Same thing: this will pull down the latest and sync your entire library. We’ll consider adding a Refresh button to our Chrome Extension. It’s less necessary though, because the Edit view in Chrome is, essentially, the full browser experience.

Here are the Release Notes for the web library experience. Comments always welcome!

March 15, 2017

This is the first release of the web view, designed particularly to help our Microsoft Word users because:

  • Editing in Word is a little limited – you can make taskpanes larger, but it requires extra steps.
  • Our poor Windows users are stuck using Internet Explorer 11! Ouch…2013 wants its browser back! Providing direct web access means you can use your favorite browser to update, then simply use Annotate PRO for Word 2016 to insert comments.
