Float like a butterfly...cite like a bee?

You're in the middle of writing a paper, thesis, book, etc., and you want to look up a reference, consult the attached PDF, and insert the temporary citation. With Bookends floating citations you can do this without leaving your word processor or even lifting your fingers from the keyboard. Simply double tap a trigger key (Shift, Control, Command, Option, or Caps Lock) and the floating citation window will appear above the document. This is an example from Word, but it works in any application.
