We've all spent time reading through long documents and passages in textbooks and periodicals, whether it's for work or when performing research for a term paper. Back in the day, you could use a ruler or piece of paper to guide your eyes while you read - today, most of the documents that we read are in electronic format on a computer screen, and the ruler just keeps falling off of my monitor!

Line Reader is your helpful reading ruler for a new generation. With Line Reader, your mouse pointer is magically transformed into handy reading software, a line that moves with your mouse to help you keep track of your spot in any long online document or webpage! Say goodbye to headaches and vertigo caused by constantly adjusting your focus to maintain your spot on your monitor! Plus, you have complete control over the size, width, and color of your reading line. It's a document viewer on steroids!

Ease of use, thy name is Line Reader.

Line Reader doesn't just help you read documents line-by-line. The app also helps you to keep track of entire paragraphs, such as those found in assembly steps and recipes. Just one click will flip your reading line from horizontal to vertical - just move the line from one paragraph to the next as you complete each step!

With helpful bonus features such as a Magnifier Window, Measurement Window, Highlighter tool, Side Lines, Screen Shapes and a Tag Along Window that holds important information such as appointments, memos, or pictures, you'll be amazed at the utility and effectiveness of Line Reader!

Ely S. One of these tiny, but very useful programs which one can find at BDJ's:

I was playing around with different screen liner programs für quite some time, but this one is the most convenient for speed reading on-screen texts, book marking when the phone rings, eye relaxation etc.

In comparison to other programs, it places the ruler globally over the screen, no matter what program or document is opened. No further need to use different programs or to copy long text into a speed reading editor. Besides, the mouse pointer holds its functionability for the corresponding window below (eg in PDF programs).

For speed readers, one can adapt the reading ruler marking/reading eg 5 lines at once, and moving the lines by adaptable short keys.

My proposal: It would be very nice to have a function whichs automatically moves the screen ruler in a certain - without touching the mouse or keys (eg 700 words or 70 lines per minute).

One has to try the numerous options and functions to find out the best way how to use it. Very colorful, but self-explanatory interface - but one needs only to read between the lines :-)

jack ho Does ONE of your "SINGLE USER LICENSEs" allow me to use the program on all three of my PCs ?

In other words, is it really a single-user license (SUL) or is it actually a single installation license (SIL)?

Constantin Florea A single license allows you to install and unlock the application on a computer and laptop. We've updated the license policy in "The Fine Print" tab of this page to reflect this and we've also added a few more details to it so it may be more accurate.

jack ho I'm afraid that it's still unclear.

Does ONE of your "SINGLE USER LICENSEs" allow me to use the program on all computer AND a Laptop?
Nov 29 2013 at 12:20pm Copy Link
Constantin Florea It is a single computer AND a single laptop.

Constantin Florea @Norman Fisher - You can do what you have described using the "Shapes" functionality (see the "Shapes" tab in Line Reader). The shapes are windows which you can drag around the screen and which stay on top of all the other windows. This means that you can use them as bookmarks for remembering different places on screen.
