With APA 7, PERRLA Online features a brand new ribbon above your paper.
Most of the icons in the ribbon will open a side panel where you can add, edit, or update the corresponding items. The Text & Heading Styles icon offers a drop-down menu with further options.
There are four major sections: Paper Sections, References, Formatting, & Help.
Paper Sections lets you add or manage different parts of your papers. Clicking any of the options will open its corresponding panel inside of Word. You can edit your Title Page, add an Abstract, or add a Table of Contents. We are working on the Appendices for a future update.
References will open the References & Citations panel in PERRLA. It's the heart of PERRLA and the panel you will interact with the most frequently. You can click here to learn a bit more about creating references. More details about working with citations is available here.
Formatting lets you update objects that are found in the body of your paper. This includes updating heading styles, inserting tables, and adding figures into your paper. The Text & Heading Styles button is a drop-down that will apply various styles any text you have selected in your paper.
The last section is for Help, which will open the PERRLA Help Center in a new browser tab.
