I am looking for a software which could help me to write quality replies to a poorly worded/structured or otherwise complex emails/forum messages.
The tool should allow to graphically break (manually of course, though some simple automatic would be handy) the original email/message into separate logical parts (paragraphs, etc). Once the original text is split into logical pieces, I can then go and add my comments to each part, as to “what is the author trying to state/ask here”. After that, I can reply to what I think an author is really asking/stating, rather than to reply to big “raw” chunks of text.
So it would be similar to a “review” functionality which exists in Microsoft Word, but with an emphasis not on the iterative review process, but on a visually guided extraction of the meaning and then addressing that meanings.
I think a tool like that should boost my email/online forums productivity.
Any directions and comments are welcome.
