Additional Information

Notes are not saved on your local device… only on our server

One technique to use to avoid losing your long note due to a connection glitch (perhaps during a sermon) is to work on the draft of the note using your device’s “yellow pad” then copy paste the text into the body of a Bible note later.

Using too many different colored Notes will get confusing.  Keep your color scheme simple… and perhaps use a color for Notes that is different from what your use for Bookmarks and Highlights.
