Tutorial (EN)

This tutorial outlines the basic functionality of the tractatus 2.0 website although we hope the most are self-explaning. A more visual description can be found at the bottom of the page in our video tutorial.

Principally, we distinguish the two tabs all paragraphs and dashboard.

All paragraphs

In the tab all paragraphs you can browse and read the whole Tractatus text and add paragraphs to the dashboard by clicking . Root paragraphs can be closed and reopened by .


The tab dashboard, found on different spots on the website , is your working desktop of the tractatus 2.0. Here, paragraphs can be sorted and structured arbitrarily.

Control elements

Next to the tabs you find the control elements.

Clean up. The button resets your dashboard.

After clicking, you can enter a valid mail address to send your current dashboard by mail.

Set the current session as bookmark.

Quick access. Entering a paragraph number or search keyword you can quickly add a paragraph.

Save session

The tractatus 2.0 offers two possibilities to save your current session. Misclicked? No problem: just use the back button of your browser and reload the page (in den meisten Browsern Cmd-R (Mac) oder F5 (Windows)) to recover the last session. Both options allow to save and restore different sessions.

Set as bookmark

The current session can be saved by the button in the control bar. Most browser, however, support the natively by the key combination Cmd-D (Mac) or Ctrl-D (Windows).

Send as mail

The current session can be saved by the button in in the control bar. Just click , enter your mail address and confirm by enter. The current session will be sent as a link (including date and time) to the mail address provided by you.

Quick access

Searching for a certain paragraph and running out of steam to scroll through all paragraphs? No problem. Using the quick access you can open them directly. Simply enter the search item or desired paragraph (we don’t both whether you add a point or not) and confirm per mouse click or Enter, yet you find the paragraph on the dashboard.
