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!

Brian Westerman Unfortunately, the installation asks to install .net 2.0, the current framework version is 4.5 so this must be a pretty old piece of software.

Had it not asked to install .net 2.0, I would probably have tried it and possibly even bought a copy, but installing a downgraded .net seemed like a really bad idea, so I stopped the trial and deleted the product installation file.

Mybe when they get it updated I;ll look at it again.

Albert Jester Brain, you don't need to install .NET 2.0, The current version of .NET can handle any .NET functions needed by the software.

By the way, I have several licenses of Line Reader for my PCs. It is great when having to read PDF files, Excel spreadsheet and long document files.

Ron I have used this software for years and it has never given any trouble. It hasn't been updated (Though my vesion says 2.8) but I don't really know what they would add because it does about all it needs to do. Just my opinion......

Brian Westerman It may be true that the current version of .net can handle the software, but there are two reasons why this is an issue (for me). 1) if the person had not updated the software since .net 2.0, then they really can't care about maintaining it very much, and 2) If the software would work with the current .net, wouldn't it have already checked that it was there and not tried to install the older version?

It's not a matter of if it will work, but if you are going to pay for software, the seller should at least keep it updated. .net 2.0 was from 2006 to about 2009, that was 10 years ago.
