Notes and highlights

Notes allow you to mark up passages of text, where you have additional annotations to supplement the text. Highlights enable you to keep track of sections of text that you feel are important in a book.

The process for creating notes and highlights will be slightly different across the various platforms: iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS.

iOS and Android

To make a highlight and note on iOS and Android, tap and hold a particular word, sentence or paragraph, and move your finger over the text that you wish to highlight. Tap on the highlighted text to change the colour and to add a note to the highlighted text.

Windows and macOS

The same will apply to Windows and macOS. Instead of tapping the screen, you will use the mouse to click and drag over the text that you wish to highlight and click on the ‘T’ icon to add the highlight. To add a note, click on the highlighted text and click on the ‘Note’ feature to add a note.

To make a highlight, select a section of text, and then tap and hold down to highlight it. Use the colour selector to personalise or colour-code the highlight.

To make a note, first make a highlight, select it, and then click the ‘Note’ option.

How to delete a note and/or highlight

On iOS, tap on the highlighted text and select the ‘Delete’ icon to remove the highlight and note.

On Android, hold down on the highlighted text and tap the ‘Delete’ icon to remove the highlight and note.

On Windows and mac OS, click on the highlighted text and then click on the ‘Remove/Delete’ icon to remove the highlight and note.

Annotations

To see all your notes in one place, select the menu icon to open all your highlights and bookmarks. Click on ‘Annotations’, then click on a specific annotation to navigate directly to the relevant page.
