How do I take notes while I read?

To take a note while you're reading Scripture on Bible Gateway, tap, double-click, or highlight a word or phrase to select it. A toolbar will appear (see screenshot below). Tap or click on the takeanoteicon.jpg button (second from the right) to open up a small screen in which you can write your note.

Tapping or clicking the note icon opens a note-taking window:

Type anything you want into the main part of the note-taking window. Clicking Save saves the note to your account; you can access it from any device as long as you're logged into your BibleGateway.com account. Clicking Cancel removes the note and closes the window.

The note is now attached to the passage. Bible passages that you've annotated in this way are marked with a noteicon.jpg icon, like this:

Clicking or tapping on that icon will open up your note. Tapping or clicking the icons in the top right of the note window allow you to:

  • deletenote.jpg Delete your note
  • editnote.jpg Edit your note
  • closenote.jpg Close the note window

You can make more than one note about the same Bible passage. If more than one note exists for the passage, you can browse between them using the arrows at the bottom of the note window:

That's a quick overview of how note-taking works on BibleGateway.com. Please note that since this feature is in beta, specific details may change. We'll update this tutorial with new information or screenshots periodically.
