How can I review the notes and highlights I’ve made?
You can access your highlighted content and all the notes you've added to a book at any time. To view your notes, highlights, or bookmarks within a particular book:
- Open the book.
- Select the three-dot icon in the upper right-hand corner of your book (the icon will be hidden in the app if you're already actively reading the book - just tap the screen once and the menu icons will reappear).
Select Notes & Bookmarks from the list of options. Highlighted content will be marked “Highlight” and the notes will appear with your selected quote and the note you wrote.
You can access audiobook bookmarks using these same steps, however, other annotations are not currently available for this format. Clicking on any of your annotations will automatically take you to that area in the book.
Notebook: where all your notes go!
If you’d like to review all the annotations you’ve made while reading any content on Everand, the Notebook tool in our app is exactly what you need! Just navigate to your “Saved” tab in the app, then select Notebook from the menu at the top of your saved list. (This feature is not available on our website at this time.)
By default your Notebook will show all annotations across any titles you’ve read, starting with the most recent. Selecting the Bookmarks, Highlights, or Notes filters located below the search bar will narrow your results respectively. You can also use the Delete icon on any annotation to remove selections individually, or the Share icon to share a quote using other apps you have installed on your device.
Why can’t I highlight or make notes in some particular titles?
If you have any trouble with highlighting content or adding a note to the book you're reading, the document may include image-based content, in which case you won't be able to highlight content or add notes. We're sorry for the trouble!
What happens to my notes if I cancel my subscription?
We'll keep all your highlights and notes saved for you even if you cancel your subscription with us. If you decide to renew your subscription, just use the same Everand account and all your highlights and notes will be ready and waiting!
