Creating Bible Study Notes - Step 1
Important Note: For your convenience, an empty note set has been provided with OneTouch, named My Personal Notes. You should feel free to use that note set for your personal notes. If you will be using the My Personal Notes set, please skip to Step 2 (by clicking on the preceding button). The following instructions for creating a new Bible study note set should only be used if you find it necessary to create a study note set in addition to the My Personal Notes set provided with OneTouch®.
The first step in creating your Bible study notes is to create and name a note set. You will do this once for each note set you wish to create. (Typically, all of your personal Bible notes will be kept in a single set. Additional note sets may be desirable if other members of your family wish to maintain their own personal Bible study notes.
You may want to keep this Help window open while you go through the following steps:
|1) ||On the OneTouch® menu bar, select File, then select New study note reference work. The Create a Study Note Reference Work dialog box will appear.
||2) ||In the Author field, type your name. Then use the Tab key (or the mouse cursor) to move to the Short Copyright field.
||3) ||The Short Copyright will automatically be generated using the information that you entered in the Author field. The Short Copyright is used whenever material is copied from OneTouch® to the Clipboard. A typical copyright notice would be "Copyright 1998 © <your name here> . All rights reserved." Change the copyright to suit your needs then Tab to the Full Name field.|
Hint: To enter the copyright symbol (©), hold down the Alt key, then press 0169, then release the Alt key.
|4) ||The Full Name of the reference work is sometimes used when somebody is making a selection from a list of available reference works. This field is required and cannot be left blank. Type the complete name of your Bible study note set then Tab to the Short Name field.
||5) ||The Short Name of the reference work is also the most commonly used name. It will appear in most reference work lists, as well as in the Reference Work Edit box when you are viewing that reference work. This field is also required and cannot be left blank. Type the short name of your Bible study note set.
||6) ||Click the button to create your Bible study note set or click the button to leave the Create a Study Note Reference Work dialog without creating a new Bible study note set. If you selected OK, then your Bible study note set will be created and will appear in the list of available reference works in the study note pane. To learn more about adding Bible study note materials, continue to Step 2 (by clicking on the preceding button).
Use the Default References Tab (located in the Options | Preferences dialog) to move your Bible study note set to the desired position in preference order.
Click either of these buttons to go on to Step 2 or to go back to the Overview.
