Review: Bookmark your text files with PageSector for Mac

Never lose your place again with this easy-to-use program.

One of the drawbacks to reading digital documents is that there's often no easy way to mark important parts or note where you left off. PageSector for Mac is a basic program that lets users do exactly that. It's not particularly fancy or sophisticated, but it will allow you to create bookmarks within a variety of different types of text files.

PageSector for Mac's interface isn't the most intuitive thing we've ever seen, but it didn't take too long for us to figure it out. A conspicuous "Open" button makes it easy to get started by opening the file you want to read; we opened both Word and text documents without problems. Users can change the font in which the document is displayed and adjust the size from between 12 and 30 point. Creating a bookmark is as easy as highlighting the desired text and then either selecting the Bookmark option from the menu bar or using the appropriate keyboard shortcut. Curiously, there are labels on the interface for Save, Add, and Delete, but clicking these doesn't seem to do anything. Bookmarks for each section are displayed in a pane on the right, and clicking on them allows users to quickly jump to the bookmarked text. PageSector doesn't come with a Help file, which would have been nice, but the program's not too difficult to figure out with a bit of experimentation. Overall, we weren't particularly impressed with PageSector's features or interface, but it does an adequate job of creating bookmarks in text files.

PageSector for Mac installs and uninstalls without issues. It's not a feature-rich app, but it does exactly what it promises to do.
