It’s finally here! Alert users of WizFolio would have caught the not-so-little hint that we dropped a few days ago regarding the upgrade of WizFolio’s citation generator, WizCite. Since then, we have been in the final stages of preparation and I am pleased to announce that WizCite 4.0 is now up and running.
Among the many exciting new improvements, there are a few features which I would like to highlight:
- WizCite 4.0 is now integrated within Microsoft Word 2007/2010 as an add-in custom pane
Data is accessed over the internet through the interface of the add-in instead of relying on Internet Explorer. This enhances the stability of WizCite and promises a simpler and more efficient citation process.
- Cite in multiple ways
Convenience is a major theme in this upgrade, with users being able to cite in three different ways, most notably by dragging and dropping the relevant citations into the document itself.
- Dockable WizCite panel
The WizCite panel can be docked at either side of the window, at the bottom, or as a free floating panel (see below for picture). This introduces a layer of flexibility into the product which users will find useful, particularly when inserting, deleting and/or modifying citations.
Tips and Tricks
- Users have quick access to their WizFolio accounts by clicking on their names. (Note: WizCite 4.0 is cite-only, which means that should you want to change items and/or perform database searches, you will have to do it through the web browser.)
- Users can double click on an item to open its preview panel
- Individual panels within the WizCite pane can be resized by dragging their borders
While WizCite 4.0 is currently only developed for Microsoft Word on Windows operating systems, we have plans to develop the corresponding versions for Mac and Linux as well within the next few months. So continue watching this space for more!
