I am unable to fall asleep till I put up this…My spouse remains to be up at 1:20 AM engaged on a bibliography for a HUGE doctoral paper. All ya’ll going by academia know the sensation…Within the meantime, she took a break to casually point out the shortcomings of MS Phrase’s bibliography database system, and the redundant boring retyping of all the identical authors, titles, and publishers.
However this late at evening, I make the connection that programming environments have been auto finishing textual content for years. It is simply the way it works. Learn the included headers, while you begin typing, pop up a menu of potential matches till you choose one or end typing. Why cannot this be the way in which to put in writing bibliographies?
So, my apologies for a LMGTFY query, however once I do actually google that, I get solely tutorials telling you fill out the reference instruments in Phrase. Actually, I believe one thing like this could be a sport changer for a lot of…and if it isn’t been created, why not?
Textual content Doc, outline a “bibliography” namespace, the place the total citations exist in a syntax based mostly on the formatting tips. Every new line is just about a operate definition, which has an abbreviation space. Then all through the doc, while you insert a quotation (parenthesis or footnote) the textual content editor begins polling the bibliography, and supplies you with all that intuitive autocompletion that does not screw up…we rely on it, now it is time to share the wealth.
So I am actually virtually flabbergasted if any such use for Clever Code Completion hasn’t been applied in some kind. Any concepts or ideas?
