This will bring up the Bookmarks dialog which lists all of the book's bookmarks. From this dialog, new bookmarks may be added, existing bookmarks may be deleted, and you can jump to any bookmark in the book by selecting it in the list and tapping the “Go To” button.


Notes

Notes are similar to bookmarks in that they are attached to specific pages. Notes, however, permit you to attach notes of over one thousand characters. This is useful to add “margin notes” to eBooks.

In eReader Pro highlighted sections of text are saved as notes and can have comments attached to them. Text highlights appear in the list of notes and can be managed in the same fashion as notes that are attached to a page rather than to a section of text.

In eReader Pro you can also assign a pen to the note; if the note is attached to a section of text, the text will be highlighted using the pen's current color.


When a note is attached to a page or a text highlight appears on a page, the note toolbar icon will have a “filled in” appearance. annotation image
