Help with making notes

Postby lowsky » Mon Apr 10, 2017 12:12 pm

I have just switched from using my iPad for scripture study to using my computer. I can't seem to figure out how to make a notation for something in the scriptures without having to put it in a notebook or tag. For example, say I want to make a note about a specific word in a scripture that will show up with an icon beside that scripture that shows my thoughts on that word. In my iPad it shows up as a page icon beside the scripture and when I touch the icon it shows my notes. I can't seem to figure out how to do that on my computer scriptures. Any help would be appreciated.

First, make sure you're signed in to (your name will appear at the top right of the page when you're logged in).

To create a highlight, select some text, and you should see a popup appear next to what you selected with options. One of those options is "Add Note/Tag."

To see a note that you've created previously, you can hover over the highlight that has a note. There's no indicator in the margin like there is in Gospel Library 4, when there's a note, tag, or link associated with the highlight, unfortunately (the study tools are a little bit behind the app study tools, but they will hopefully be catching up soon).
