What are Bookmarks and how can I use them?

Bookmarks make it easy to reference pages later.

Bookmarking pages really helps you navigate through a script quickly. Whether it be the tops of scenes, or certain pages you keep referring to, creating Bookmarks are great way to make sure you can easily find a location again.

Bookmarks are found on the right side of the Top Menu.

To create your first Bookmark, navigate to the specific page you'd like to add a Bookmark for.

NOTE: The Top Menu automatically disappears when you swipe through your script. A single tap anywhere on the screen will reveal the Top Menu again.

When you've reached the specific page, tap the Bookmark icon. The icon darkens once the bookmark is made. Now you can add as many bookmarks as you'd like!

Managing Bookmarks

With all of your bookmarks made, Outline allows you to scan through all of your bookmarked pages, as well as add, edit, delete, and rename them.

Start by tapping the Outline icon (the open book) on the Top Menu.
In the dropdown menu, the left tab shows the Bookmarks Outline, and the right tab shows the Annotation Outline.

From this dropdown menu, you can:
Add: The + icon adds a new bookmark to the current page. (This is how to add more than 1 bookmark per page.)
Delete: By swiping right, then tapping Delete.
Edit: Shows tools for reordering and renaming.

If you tap Edit, you are also able to:
Reorder: Press and hold the three line icon to drag and drop into a specific order.
Rename: Tap the bookmark's name to type a new name. (The default is "Bookmark". Bookmarks must have a name.)
Delete: By tapping the red circle, and tapping Delete.

When you are finished with your edits, tap Done.

Transferring Bookmarks

Now that you've place your bookmarks, and customized their names, it's important to Transfer them forward anytime you receive a new draft.

Anytime you perform a Note Transfer, just be sure to toggle on Transfer Bookmarks.

NOTE: Bookmark Transfer is an Industry Pro feature.
