Windows (OT 7.4)- 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:

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

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

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

To make this a sub category drag the category over another category and drop it. 

Edit a Category

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

  • Select the Menu icon.
  • Select 'Notes'. 
  • Hover over the category and tap the pencil icon

Here you can change the title 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.  

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