(Oct 26 2017 3:28PM) : [[ This document was originally shared only with Mr. Tufte only, an intended demo of NowComment, so this and all my other comments were addressed to him. I've now opened up the document to be public rather than be private as is NowComment's default. ]] [Edited] more

Very appropriate that you got the first words!

You can scroll or pause the NowComment video stream at any point to make a comment, then resume watching; it’s a very interactive process.

A header in the right column shows the timestamp… clicking on the header takes you to that place in the video stream.

(Oct 26 2017 3:16PM) : I wanted to you use a bit of your own material as a demo document for you on the NowComment software's multimedia capabilities. more

NowComment comments have 3 fields:

1. a “main point” field that’s limited to 255 characters, so readers of heavily commented documents can skim through the comments to see what they do or don’t want to read more of.

2. an optional 2nd field that gives you as much space as desired to elaborate, give examnples, identify tangents, etc.

There’s also an optional tag field (in Advanced Options).

This is an example of a comment on a particular area of an image (rectangle drawn by the user defines the area). Areas can overlap with each other. Comments on particular areas are segregated from comments on the image as a whole (the same way comments on text sentences are segregated from comments on the paragraph as a whole and from the document as a whole).
