Citepad is like a magic wand that floats over your screen and inserts legal terms, symbols, and phrases into documents with the touch of your finger.

It does not turn your computer screen into a touch screen, but you "touch" the Citepad virtual keyboard with your mouse and "Voila."

Attorneys often gripe about a relatively small but commonly experienced pain point: the section symbol. The section symbol, though a very small element of legal writing, is needed often enough that it routinely forces attorneys out of their workflow and into unfamiliar parts of their word processing software.

Juristech's new floating keyboard software Citepad is taking a swing at this workflow hassle.

It's interesting, and it's actually quite easy to use . . . Citepad has more of the legal abbreviations for citations . . .

I like a soft keyboard approach. I have a laptop and I'm already forced to have a USB mouse attached to it because I can't deal with the mousepad, but if I had to have another keyboard attached to it, I might as well stick another monitor on it and make it a Frankenbox. So I like a softkeyboard. I think that is for me the better way to go.

New software called Citepad allows lawyers to click on an on-screen keypad to add citation words and symbols. . . . 

The software integrates with WestlawNext Copy with Reference and Lexis Advance Copy Citation to Clipboard, allowing the user to add citations in a few clicks. One click also allows small caps to be turned on or off.

Unlike the LegalBoard, which is an actual hardware keyboard, the Citepad is an application that provides legal-specific buttons on your computer screen. That initial Citepad release worked only on Macs. Today, a new version is coming out for Windows 10 computers. It works identically to the Mac version and can be used with Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, OpenOffice and Google Docs ...



Citepad modernizes legal writing which traditionally relies heavily on the keyboard to execute complex formatting rules. 

“Since we first released the Mac OS X version of Citepad in March, the requests for the Windows version have been pouring in,” Juristech CEO Emily Montgomery said. “Citepad has been popular with law students and solo practitioners who use Macs, and we are excited to bring efficient writing to all legal professionals.”

A company called Juristech has launched the Citepad, the first virtual keypad designed for legal professionals. The software floats over word processing programs, allowing lawyers to insert words, phrases, and symbols commonly used in legal documents with a single click.

The keypad also allows users to toggle between italic and underline formatting with a single click, LawSites reported. It also integrates with WestlawNext Copy with Reference and Lexis Advance Copy Citation to Clipboard.
