iPhone/iPad (OT 7.1)- Categories

Categories and subcategories are tools for organizing your annotations. You can use them to sort your annotations by date, place, type of study, or any other method you choose. Annotations can only be tied to one category.  

You can add notes, saved passages, and highlights to categories. To manage your categories, we suggest choosing Notes. 

Create a Category

You can create a category while editing a note in the Bible text or through the Menu. 

While editing a note, follow these steps:

  • Tap the three-dot icon in the right corner.
  • Tap 'Change Category'.
  • Tap 'Create New Category'.
  • Enter a label (title).
  • If you want this to be a subcategory, choose a parent category.
  • Tap Create in the upper right corner.

To create a category through the Menu, follow these steps:

  • Tap the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes' 
  • Tap 'Add Category' at the bottom.
  • Enter a label (title).
  • If you want this to be a subcategory, choose a parent category.
  • Tap Create in the upper right corner.

Edit a Category

You can edit the parent category and label of a category using these steps: 

  • Tap the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'. 
  • Tap the 'i' icon to the right of the category.
  • Edit the label and/or parent category.
  • Tap the arrow in the left corner to save your changes.

Delete a Category

You can delete a category through the Menu. Please note that if you delete a category that has annotations in it, those annotations will also be deleted. You may need to move the annotations from the category before you can delete the category.  

  • Tap the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'.
  • Locate the category you want to delete.
  • Swipe from right to left across the category.
