Texidium is being updated. Version 2.1 includes new features and improvements to the user experience. This update is being released in stages as outlined below.

Windows and Mac: January 25, 2018
iOS and Android: Mid-February 2018

What’s Changing

Redesigned margins in Reader apps

  • Notes made in an EPUB will show up in the margins of your book on all platforms, as they currently do in the online Reader.
  • This eliminates the need to click on highlighted text to view attached notes.

Copy and paste notes

  • Users can easily copy all notes they’ve made in an eText to their device’s clipboard.
  • Copied notes can be pasted into a word processor or the body of an email like any copied text.
  • Each pasted note appears along with the chapter and page on which it was made and the highlighted text to which it was attached.

In-app dictionary support

  • Users can look up the definition of a word in an eText with just a couple of clicks.
  • Definitions are taken from Oxford’s online dictionary. They appear in a window within the Reader.

New print restriction options

  • Publishers can impose a limit on how much content can be printed from an eText prior to the deadline for students to drop or add courses.
  • Separate limits can be established for before and after the drop/add deadline.

Willo support for LMS

  • Kivuto has partnered with Willo Labs to provide two key services for schools that distribute resources through a Learning Management System (LMS).
    • One-click access to courseware sites provided by publishers without the need to enter a code
    • The ability to provide a free access period for resources before users are prompted to purchase or opt in/out.
  • Users can be issued trial licenses that automatically expire at the end of the window to drop or add courses. A permanent license is then issued only to users who opted in. This eliminates the need for schools to provide whitelists at the end of the drop/add period.
  • It is now possible to configure book-specific links in schools’ LMS that can direct users straight to a specific page when clicked.
