In addition to conventional open file dialog capabilities, the Sense Open Document dialog incorporates an integral web browser.

When Sense is used In conjunction with its separately installable Html Plugin, web-page text may be directly saved as a local Sense document for reference from a "Master Sense Document" within an authoring workflow: attribution details automatically assigned to this new document may include access date and page URL.

The Master Document's ViewPoints assumes the role as Reference Manager: items may be added into its categorized hierarchy from any (not just from the web) intermediate / secondary source documentation by:

  • Manual inclusion of either a whole document or selected fragments.
  • Keyword / Phrase Search through the documentation.
  • Category Search through Marked Text - secondary source documentation may be pre-analysed for text of special significance and marked with a topic based category.

Attribution (Primary Source) details will need completion for Reference Managed (ViewPoints) items to provide the necessary information for in-text citation and bibliographic listing that may vary between Citation Styles (eg APA, MLA) and source type (eg book, online, journal).
