LENS is an innovative way to view figures and tables side-by-side with article content that helps readers absorb the content without having to navigate between modal popups, browser tabs, etc.
LENS was developed by eLifeSciences to take better advantage of Internet technology to provide a better user experience.
To use LENS for any article, simply click on the red "View this article with LENS" button on the right rail or on the Figures & Data tab. A new browser tab will launch using the LENS interface.
To the left of the content is a status bar to easily scroll through the content. In the middle is a tool to select what will appear in the right pane. Use the Figures option for the side-by-side view.
