The act of annotation is only the beginning. Leverage your highlights to enhance your reading experience.

- How It Works -

1. Highlight Text: Literal supports annotations made within web browsers, PDF readers, and more.
2. Import the Highlight: Share the highlight with Literal to import it. Use the selection toolbar to share the highlighted text directly, or share a screenshot of the highlight.
3. Annotate the Highlight: Add context and thoughts by adding tags and notes.
4. Build Bridges, Not Silos: Browse annotations grouped by tags and reflect as ideas evolve in response to new annotations and new relationships between them.
