iThoughts (for iOS) Tip #3

Navigating within the Notes Area

The image below (from v. 2.15) contains one Level 0 topic (“Inheritance”) and three Level 1 topics — children of the Level 0 topic. One of the children has been selected (“Added as”); previously, the “Inheritance” topic’s text was added to the Notes area, indicated by the green 10 (info on how to add text to the Notes area).

In Tip #3, information will be provided about each of the ten green-numbered items. To do #1-8 below, the Notes area needs to be open with text in it.

  1. The icon beneath #1, when pressed, causes a black horizontal bar with this info to appear: | Select | Select All | Paste | BIU |.
  2. Each time the icon beneath #2 is tapped, the Notes area cursor will move one word to the left with the cursor positioned before that word’s first letter.
  3. Each time the icon beneath #3 is tapped, the Notes area cursor will move one word to the right with the cursor positioned after that word’s last letter.
  4. Each time the icon beneath #4 is tapped, the Notes area cursor will move one character to the left.
  5. Each time the icon beneath #5 is tapped, the Notes area cursor will move one character to the right.
  6. This icon opens the Text Style window. It allows you to change the following in the selected note text: font, color, font style (bold, italic, underline, strikethrough) and, if all the note text is selected, its alignment (left, center, right).
  7. The minus sign decreases the size of the selected note text.
  8. The plus increases the size of the selected note text.
  9. The “V” opens the Notes area; an inverted “V” closes it.
  10. Just typing text in a topic does not automatically add that text to the Notes area. A topic’s text must be selected and transferred the Notes area; similarly, just typing new text in the Notes area does not automatically add that text to a selected topic.
