Author in your browser

Open Author in your browser if you want to quickly switch between Author and other parts of the application, such as Review.

Author on your desktop

Open Author on your desktop if you want to work across multiple monitors and have lots of windows open.

Note: If you don't have permission to access Author, the following message displays: An authentication error has occurred. The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted. Contact your Author-it administrator to gain access to Author.

If you can't access the remote desktop, check with your IT department to ensure your firewall allows access to downloading these sorts of files.
