Android (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.

You can create a category through the Menu by following these steps:

  • Tap the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes' 
  • Tap the options icon in the upper right corner.
  • Tap 'Add Category'.
  • Enter a Category Name.
  • Tap Create Category.

Edit a Category

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

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.

  • Select 'Notes'.
  • Locate the category you want to delete.
  • Tap and hold the category.
  • Select 'Delete'.
