Windows - 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. You can add notes, saved passages, and highlights to categories. Annotations can only be tied to one category.  We suggest managing your categories through the Notes section in the Menu.  

Create a Category

You can create a category through the Menu. Follow these steps to learn how to create a category:

  • Select the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'.
  • Select the + in the upper right corner.
  • Choose 'Add Category'.
  • Enter a category name and select the save icon. 

To make this a subcategory, see the steps below to edit the category.

Edit a Category

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

  • Select the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'. 
  • Hover over the category and select the pencil icon.
  • Here you can change the title for the category.
  • To choose or change the parent category, select the existing category that you would like to be the parent category. Choosing 'Annotations' means that this will not be a subcategory of another category. Click the back arrow to Save.


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 the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'.
  • Locate the category you want to delete.
  • Right click on the category.
  • Select 'Delete'.
  • Confirm that you would like to delete the category.
