Hi all, 

Is it possible to anchor a note to a reference (not selected text) in a resource that isn't a bible? 

For example, can I anchor a note to Chapter 1.7 of the Westminster confession so that the note appears at the same place in all the version of the confession that I own? 

Thanks in advance, Liam

Thanks for the quick reply, MJ. this is annoying beyond words. I doubt we’ll ever see this feature added by the looks of it. what A shame.

Does anyone know any work around? 

thanks again, L

Is this what you mean?

If you want to create a Note by reference from the Confession:

  • right click a word in the chapter
  • select Reference  on LHS 
  • select Take a Note on the RHS
  • the Note will propagate to the other Confession resource
  • The Anchor appears in the Note as above

Note carefully - Dave gave the answer for adding a new note; I gave the answer for adding a reference to an existing note.
