• Table of Contents
• Numbered Headings
• References/Bibliography*
• Formatting of citations
- Author supports export with citations in the body text as (author, date), superscript number or in regular or hard brackets. Hard brackets, like this[1] allows those who read your document in ‘Reader’ to click on that number to bring up the full References information.
- The automatically created Reference section can be listed by occurrence or alphabetically.

Advanced Views

• Concept Map: Think freely without being constrained by the traditional columns of text.
• Magic Margins: In full screen the margins behave like the Dynamic View where you an add notes.
• Instant Outline: Pinch on your trackpad to fold the text to see just the headings. Pinch further in or out to see more or less headings
• Advanced Find: If you only want to see sentences with a specific keyword, select the keyword cmd-f to hide all the sentences which do not have the keyword will be hidden. Click on a sentence to jump to it, cmd-f again or ESC to return to the regular view

Modern & Minimalist

• Reduces eye strain and supports native macOS Dark Mode.
• ESC to go into and out of full screen. It seems like a detail but is very helpful when going between focused writing and interacting with many documents.
• Time Machine integration for continuous backups with versions on Save.
