Add Highlight

To highlight, simply click and drag your cursor over the text you want to highlight. A menu will appear on your screen allowing you to select colors. Click on the color of your choice, then click Add Highlight.

Edit highlights

Click on an existing highlight to edit it. You can change its color, add a note, or remove it. To remove it, click the current color of the highlight, which has an X over it.

Add Note

Adding a note also begins with you clicking and dragging your cursor over a selection of text. Click Add Note to open a text area where you can type your note.

When finished with your note, click Save. If you decide you don't need a note after all, click Cancel

Read notes

Any notes you create will appear as a highlight in the text, with a small square in the margin to the left of the highlight. Click on the square to read the note.

Edit notes

When reading a note, click the three dots (...) in the upper right-hand corner to edit it. Click Edit Note to change the text of your note, or select a color next to Change Highlight to change the highlight color. If you select the current highlight color with an X over it, you will remove your note. You can also remove your note by clicking Delete.
