In order to enable a more richly augmented text environment we have implemented what we call Visual-Meta which allows you to copy of text from a PDF in Reader and pasting it into Author as a full citation which we call Augmented Copy and much more.
Visual-Meta is entirely open for any developer.
The software is Augmented Text, as part of the 'Future of Text Initiative' which also includes the annual Future of Text Symposium, the book The Future of Text and the Visual-Meta approach. If you have any questions or comments, please email us at email@example.com
