Chrome Extension

I am planning on signing up for the Pro Version as I have an awful lot of research to do/store before I can start the writing. It mentions that there is a Chrome Extension to enable saving stuff direct from my browser but I can’t seem to find this when searching for Papyrus Author in the Google Extension store. Is it called something else?

Hey, welcome to the Community!

The Chrome Extension can be found through the Research settings in Papyrus Author Pro.

  1. Go to ‘Preferences’


  1. Select ‘Research’ from the menu on the left and click on 'Google Chrome add-on…’

Add Chome add-on

Creating new research databases is limited to Pro version of Papyrus Author, but you can view an example database with the free version in ‘Example Documents’

  1. Go to ‘Guide’ and select ‘Example Documents’

Example documents

  1. In ‘Example Documents’ you’ll find an example database. Just double-click on the blue ‘Database’ text to access it, or open the ‘Gods (My Research)’ document to view how research data looks in The Navigator. You can’t edit the database with Papyrus Author Free, but you can review how it saves research entries.


Additionally we have a great tutorial video going through the Research function in our YouTube page.

You can find the full documentation on Research in our Wiki for additional info.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can help with!

Thank you Sam. Will give it a try.
