Mac - 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 'My Stuff' section of the Study Center. 

While editing a note, follow these steps:

  • Select the dropdown next to 'Note Category'.
  • Select 'Create Category'.
  • Enter a category name.
  • If you want this to be a subcategory, choose a parent category.
  • Select 'Create'.

To create a category through My Stuff, follow these steps:

  • Open the Study Center by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of the app. 
  • Select 'My Stuff.'
  • Select 'Notes'
  • Select 'Add Category'
  • Enter a category name.
  • If you want this to be a subcategory, choose a parent category.
  • Select 'Create'.

Edit a Category

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

  • Open the Study Center by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of the app. 
  • Select 'My Stuff.'
  • Select 'Notes.'
  • Secondary click on the category and select 'Edit Category'.

Here you can change the name and choose a parent category if you'd like. Choosing 'Annotations' means that this will not be a subcategory of another category. 

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.  

  • Open the Study Center by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of the app. 
  • Select 'My Stuff.'
  • Select 'Notes.'
  • Secondary click on the category and select 'Delete Category'.
  • Select 'Delete' to confirm that you would like to delete the category.
