Abstract

In this method, users can set up a key position by editing file and setting specific tags. It is convenient for users to share file to others with a key position. Also, it will be better to present the key position. We will use different ways to record key positions for different files: 1. For plain text, we record key character's specific location in the file. 2. For picture, we capture the key position and save as a new picture. 3. For audio and video, we record key period of playing (starting time and ending time).
