Abstract: Electronic documents such as PDFs are becoming increasingly popular as we move further towards the notion of the paperless office. The harsh truth however is that e-documents differ greatly from their physical paper counterparts, with many users opting to print them before reading. This paper describes several novel implementations that utilize a technique known as 'lightweight interaction'; a term that describes activities that can be performed without excessive cognitive attention. Incorporating tools into digital document readers to aid users in day-to-day tasks will enhance their performance and hopefully increase user uptake of digital reading. My research on this topic centers on several areas of document navigation, focusing specifically on current physical (paper) practices, in order to enhance their digital equivalents.
