New objects like
paragraphs etc., can be added or removed, which will be shown in the tracker for
later checking and to inform master-copiers. If the objects change any counters, it
will immediately be reflected in the document by automatically re-numbering
the objects and fixing the cross-references when you compile the document
Synchronized pre/post-edited sources
Pre- and post-edited document sources along with tracker window with hyperlinked list of edit changes are available. Authors can make a last minute checking and confirmation of all edits or discard any change at their will. [More on Pre/Post-edited Sources]
No need for another proof
Since authors edit directly on the LATEX sources and view the final output as in print/web, no need to request a revised proof or to wait for it which reduces production time. They can download their edited output in PDF format if they want.
One-to-one link between source TEX file to PDF and back are available which makes it easier to navigate from source to the corresponding location in PDF and vice-versa. The user need to compile the sources once for this feature to take effect. [More on Navigation]
Although, authors can edit their sources at their will, author’s TEX code will be validated immediately during proofing process. Hence, chances for making errors by authors are almost non-existent.
A convenient tracker of copy-editor made changes with choice to Reject/Accept the changes is available. Default is Accept. [More on Tracker]
PDF generation can optionally be stopped at an error or can be continued till end of the job without stopping at errors to facilitate authors’ preferred style of debugging. [More on Error-Stop/Non-stop]
Notes, requests, comments, etc.
Any number of notes, requests, comments, etc., can be added to the document sources by clicking at line number. [More on Author Notes]
At the end of the editing job or whenever they want, authors can generate a PDF from their edited sources which is exactly like the one when finally printed in the journal.
The editor in Neptune renders document source in a well-structured, pretty-printed and human-readable format which will prompt even the non-LATEX authors to try editing in the source.
- PDF output has active hyperlinks and bookmarks.
- Any number of Undo/Redo will be supported.
- Facilities available to add comments, instructions, etc., to queries directed to authors.
- Search/replace and regular expressions are supported.
- Neptune works well with Raspberry Pi which saves a lot of energy and goes with our environment-friendly production technologies.
