What is Zenreader for Mac

Zenreader - collect, organise and combine your knowledge so that you produce great work in less time. Zenreader is used to rapidly build a body of knowledge and evidence from PDF documents and webpages. With Zenreader you read documents, highlight text and images, capture your thoughts and draft excellent evidence-based notes. With one click you then export all of your work to your favourite writing software.

Zenreader is designed with productivity in mind and comes with powerful features to help you manage your work including a note tagging system, note drag & drop, one-click to go from your notes to the original source document, multi-document full text search and trello-like boards. With Zenreader you produce excellent research documents faster than with other tools, whilst enjoying the work more.

What's new in Zenreader

Version 2.1.7:
New Features
  • Highlight Equations and convert them to LaTeX.
  • Added Equation Highlighting mode (pick the f(x) highlighting button from the Reader Toolbar).
  • Once an equation is highlighted from a PDF document, the image is sent to Mathpix OCR which returns the detected LaTeX. The equation highlight appears in the highlight panel.
  •  The Equation highlight can be exported or used within an Outline.
  • If the LaTeX code is incorrect, you may amend it directly by editing the original highlight text (and revert back if needed).
  • This feature requires you to create a Mathpix OCR account with API Credentials ($1 fees) and to provide Zenreader with your API keys (instructions to do this can be accessed from the Preferences screen → Integrations page).
  •  The feature is for Premium accounts only.
Other Changes
  • Added project count label and scrollbar in the projects list view.
  • Updated the tooltip text for the icons on the outliner cards.
  •  When exporting an Outliner the notes of an Image card will appear on the same place as in the Outliner (below the image).
Deprecated Features
  • Temporarily disabled the code that checks for duplicates during the import of bibliographic references: the code for duplicate detection is currently very slow and an immediate performance fix was not found. This will be re-introduced in a future version, pending a re-development of the duplicate matching algorithm. With this feature enabled, a file of 3000 bibliographic references could take upwards of 20 minutes to be imported in Zenreader.
Bug Fixes
  •  Pasting text from clipboard (ctrl+v or CMD+v) on an outline card was not working.
  • Exporting an Outline to Markdown (.md) would freeze when one of the Outline cards had some text in the additional notes section.
  • The BibTeX file parser would not proceed with importing .bib libraries that contained comments and/or BibTeX field values that were wrapped with curly brackets. The file parser was re-written using a pattern-matching approach.
  • Image and OCR Highlighting was not respecting the limits placed on free accounts.
  • Fixed a crash caused by Manually importing a BibTeX citation entry. The crash occurred when the pasted text included the entry with a duplicate entry key.

I came across Zenreader a year ago and I thought it had some very cool features, but it needed some polishing. I recently came back to the app and the developers have done a great job improving the app. This is especially true with regards to the user interface which is now straightforward and easy to use. Shows great promise!

Very good app! The UI is nicely done with a clean look and feel. The pdf highlight and tag features are among my favorite features. They are easy to use and save me a lot of time. I definitely recommend this app. PS: I am using the free version that allows you to have only one project but you can load a lot of PDFs on that project. They offer free & subscription verions
