Opening your papers in PERRLA for Word on Mac is really easy.
When you launch PERRLA for Word, it will take you to the Home screen by default. There, you'll see your five most recent Papers.
Just click Open in Word beside a paper to open it.
If you don't see the Paper there, you can find a list of all your PERRLA Papers in My Papers in the sidebar.
You can use the same Open in Word button there to open any of your papers.
If you start Word with a PERRLA paper already open, PERRLA will bypass the starting screen and go directly into Writing Mode for that paper. This is the side-by-side view with Word and PERRLA working together.
