3. Highlights - Toolbar

Use the highlight icon in the toolbar to highlight text in yellow.

4. Add Note - Pop-up Menu

Create a note by selecting text on a page and choosing the note icon in the pop-up menu. Type your note and click on Save.

5. Add Note - Toolbar

To add a note to the whole page rather than selected text, use the note icon in the toolbar.


Click the bookmark icon in the toolbar, or the upper right of the page, to bookmark a page.

7. Export Notes from Bookshelf 

Notes can be exported from your bookshelf. Find the book in your bookshelf, select the More icon and click on Export Notes. Please understand that only your notes will be exported, NOT the text that accompanies the notes.
