SciFlow is providing you with a text editor that allows you to write your scientific paper without complications - at least for the writing part. For this purpose we have picked specific features, like citing, equations and headings. All of these features are usable through the icons that are displayed in the editor. 

We have gathered an overview of all those icons in this article.

Take into consideration, that some features will forward you to another article, giving you further assistance. 


   1. bold                                       7. enumeration                       13. tables
   2. italic                                      8. indent                                 14. equations
   3. superscript                           9. outdent                               15. hyperlink
   4. subscript                             10. footnotes                            16. undo
   5. block quote                        11. citations                               17. redo
   6. list                                       12. figure                                   18. special characters

If the icon is greyed out, it does not have any purpose under the current cursor position. For example, you can not add a picture while writing inside of a heading.


  1. Document outline - a menu that will list all the headings chronologically.
  2. Authors - invite new authors and view all your currently collaborating ones 
  3. Comments - write and view those comments which are present in the selected text passage
  4. Library - upload and view your references
  5. Templates - export your document with one of our templates
