Adding an Abstract
Adding an abstract to your APA Paper only takes a single click with Paper View. Here's how it works:
- Scroll to the bottom of the Title Page
- Click Add an Abstract
It's the wide green button between the Title Page and the Body of the paper.
We automatically add a page for your Abstract along with everything you need to properly format it. Now, just add in your own text and some keywords.
Removing an Abstract
If you ever need to remove your Abstract, just click Remove Abstract on the Abstract page. If you remove the Abstract, its data will be lost.
The Remove Abstract button doesn't show up in the final paper. It's only visible while you're writing in the Paper View Editor.
One last thing
Be sure the Abstract box is checked in the Export/Download tab when you're exporting your paper.
